      "Whenever I had any questions or even just needed to talk, she was always there to talk about the case or just in general. I highly recommend her and would use her in the future again as needed. She was excellent!"

      I have recommended Kayleen to family and friends of mine as well and they have hired her. She has been my lawyer for few years and helped with my custody of my son. Not only was she very professional but also was very compassionate. Whenever I had any questions or even just needed to talk, she was always there to talk about the case or just in general. I highly recommend her and would use her in the future again as needed. She was excellent!

      "Because of Kayleene my daughter now enjoys a safe and wonderful family where she is blossoming into a remarkable young woman. I am forever in Kayleene's debt."

      The short story is that I would not have custody of my eldest daughter if not for Kayleene's rapport with the court. She was able to respectfully correct the judge and on matters that proved vital to me eventually winning an impossible custody battle. Because of Kayleene my daughter now enjoys a safe and wonderful family where she is blossoming into a remarkable young woman. I am forever in Kayleene's debt.

      I would like to thank The Law Offices of Kayleene H. Writer for their professionalism, knowledge and understanding of family law and needs when it comes to divorce. Kayleene helped me obtain custody of my 4 children so that I could raise them and care for them as a single father. It was very hard but my kids have all graduated, have great careers and are self sufficient now. Family court and law is never fun or easy and Kayleene helped make it affordable and possible for a single father such as myself. She will fight for your rights and get you the results you need. Thank you again Kayleene for everything you did for me and my family. Five Stars.

      After meeting with several lawyers prior to Ms. Writer, I have chosen to work with Kayleene for the past several years. She has been an absolute delight! These types of processes take patience and good communication. Kayleene and her staff have always kept my and my children’s best interests at heart, while maintaining a neutral sense of professionalism. She has provided options and covered every angle in the cases I have referred to her. If this is the route you choose, give Kayleene a call or send her an email if you have it. She is one of the few good ones left.

      A Legal Warrior! It’s impossible for me to put into writing how thankful I am for Kayleene’s unrelenting focus on the ultimate goal…. the safety and happiness of my children!!! She not only nailed all legal aspects of this “criminal divorce” in family court, but her strategic advice was vital in getting me, as a father in CA, a very rare judgement for full legal and physical custody!

      Kayleene was my mediator for my divorce. She did an excellent job. She was very easy to work with. Divorce is not easy, and is super emotional. Kayleene was very warm and comforting to both me and my husband while we were going through this process. Her prices were very reasonable too. I would highly recommend working with her. She knows her stuff, and made this a very easy process for us, at such a hard time in our lives. Thank you, Kayleene!

      "I am so thankful for Attorney Kayleen Writer. Her knowledge of family law and her familiarity with the court were instrumental for me winning custody of my step-daughter in what seemed to be an impossible bid."

      I am so thankful for Attorney Kayleen Writer. Her knowledge of family law and her familiarity with the court were instrumental for me winning custody of my step-daughter in what seemed to be an impossible bid. The judge clearly respected her understanding of the law which would later join me to the case as the de facto father of ten years. Without this I would have had no ability to build a successful argument and I’m afraid I could have lost my daughter.

      I recommend Attorney Writer with all my heart.

      "You should see her in court, she is well respected and a total ninja in the courtroom. Best choice ever for a divorce lawyer. Just do it as Nike says ??"

      Kayleene is the gold standard of family law attorneys! I was frustrated because Dad in my case was claiming poverty and living with his parents. His parents let him live rent free while most of us struggle each month to pay rent (esp. in OC). She made my day by telling me there is a case where the court can impute his income based on the fair market value of his two bedrooms he uses at mommy and daddy’s house. That is a whopping $1,700.00 a month WHOO HOO! She cares deeply about single parents. You should see her in court, she is well respected and a total ninja in the courtroom. Best choice ever for a divorce lawyer. Just do it as Nike says 🙂

      "She is understanding and knowledgeable, about family law issues, including divorce, child custody, child support, and guardianship. Would highly recommend her to anyone."

      Kayleene Writer helped someone close to me get a divorce….Our prior attorney never got anything done but Kayleene is just the opposite- she thinks ahead, keeping in mind how crowded the courts are and how long things take. She filed a motion for us three months in advance to make sure it would be ruled on by the time we needed the issue resolved. She is understanding and knowledgeable, about family law issues, including divorce, child custody, child support, and guardianship. Would highly recommend her to anyone.

      Outstanding & Excellent Attorney. I cannot say enough good things about Kayleene. She did amazing job on our gardenship of our niece. Kayleene was so nice when we met her we new she would be our attorney to help us out. She listened to us. If I left a message Kayleene would call me back ASAP. She made sure our paper work was done a head of time. Kayleene would call me on the weekends or at night to ask us questions about our case before we would have to be in court. Kayleene was always on time for court. She gave us great advise on everything we asked. Kayleene cares about her clients and will give you all the time you need to feel comfortable that you are ready for your hearing. Kayleene office staff is great also. Very receptive and helpful and very friendly. I would recommend Kayleene to anyone who needs a family law attorney. Kayleene talked to us and explained everything to us and let us know what was going to happened in court. Kayleene never failed us. Thank You Kayleene for everything.

      "She answered all of my questions with such clarity and care. We then went into bringing in facts and what would be the best plan for what we were trying to accomplish and I retained her services."

      Knowledgeable and Caring. I went to Miss Writer for advice on a very difficult custody matter regarding my son. She answered all of my questions with such clarity and care. We then went into bringing in facts and what would be the best plan for what we were trying to accomplish and I retained her services. she never hesitated to return a call or answer any questions leading up to appearing in court and always had my son’s health and best interest first. She looked for every avenue to resolve things in the best way, my family and I were blown away with how much care and detail given. If anyone has a matter and you need someone who is knowledgeable, professional and timely. Please give Miss Writer a call, you will not regret it at all.

      "I cannot recommend her highly enough, if you need assistance with any issue pertaining to family law, Kayleene Writer is your absolute best choice."

      Kayleene Writer is a true professional family law attorney who has the track record and connections in her industry to ensure that her clients get the best possible outcome and resolution to complex issues from property to alimony to child support and custody issues. She is not only knowledgeable, but aggressive when necessary, but above all, extremely intelligent and measured in all situations. Many family law attorneys will take advantage of the emotional situation that their clients are in, this is the complete opposite for Kayleene, who truly cares about each person she helps and does not take advantage of her clients in any way. I cannot recommend her highly enough, if you need assistance with any issue pertaining to family law, Kayleene Writer is your absolute best choice.

      "Professional, knows family law and CARES about your case. I cannot say enough good things about Kayleene as a custody or family law attorney!"

      Professional, knows family law and CARES about your case. I cannot say enough good things about Kayleene as a custody or family law attorney! She did an amazing job on my custody case, even though she took the case late in the process and had to deal with a lot of problems that were created from the prior representation and court hearings. All of that did not scare her away, though! She rapidly learned the facts from the prior case file, and knew all about the case, in detail, in no time. This was not an easy case, legally or emotionally. There were a lot of issues, and she knew the law, or found it out right away, for each issue. Kayleene does not “shoot from the hip” or leave anything to chance; she prepares for every possible issue or point, and she actually remembers what you have told her about the facts. She has endless energy, and worked weekends, late nights, whatever she felt was needed to be absolutely prepared. She stays in very close communication as trial approaches, so you can both be well prepared. She spoke at length to my witnesses, and they felt well prepared to testify also. Then, she had to do it all over, after the judge postponed the case on the day of trial! Again, this did not faze her, although it meant she had to do much of the prep again. She did not allow the delay to negatively effect her preparation or more importantly, her enthusiasm for my case. She really cares about her clients, and will give you all the time you need to feel comfortable that you are ready for your hearing. She is a very unique person and awesome attorney. The judge in my case was unprofessional and treated Kayleene quite rudely, apparently trying to embarrass her or get her to mess up her presentation. She took it in stride, (some attorneys would have given up and stopped trying to accomplish the goal, or run out crying – seriously, it was that bad). Kayleene was the consummate professional the whole time. Kayleene always responded quickly to my messages. I felt like she had my back at every moment leading to the hearing. Kayleene’s office staff is great, also, very receptive and helpful, always professional and friendly. Kayleene is an expert in the area of family law and spends considerable time and money to take courses and ensure she is on top of the area of law. It was very obvious she knew a lot more law than the judge or the opposing attorney in my case. She will listen carefully and give you her best advice, and if you propose an alternate approach, she will consider it and give you her considered advice as to that course; if she does not feel it is great, she will tell you and explain why. Then, she leaves it to you to decide. You just cannot go wrong with Kayleene on your side.

      "This attorney is amazing! We did not win our case, but we feel good because Kayleene listened to us, understood our point of view, and was on our side 100% the whole way. AND, she was more prepared for this hearing than any attorney ever could have been."

      This attorney is amazing! We did not win our case, but we feel good because Kayleene listened to us, understood our point of view, and was on our side 100% the whole way. AND, she was more prepared for this hearing than any attorney ever could have been. The loss of the case is all due to the judge; he’s got problems, to say the least. We could not be more pleased with the representation, however, of Ms. Writer. She made herself available to us night and day, giving us personal cell and home numbers to call her. She worked two full weekends preparing our case; after it was postponed once, she had to do it again, and did so cheerfully. Kayleene has incredible knowledge of family law and how to present a case, and has a great handle on the evidence rules, too, so she knows what will be allowed as evidence in court or not. She gives you her best advice and is willing to try things your way if you do not want her advice (please, take her advice!). Her office staff are very pleasant, efficient, and helpful. Every time you call the office, you can be sure you will receive top notch help.

      Divorce and Guardianship. Needed divorce fast because I am in military and had to be back. Kayleene worked with me and my exwife to get not only my divorce but full custody of both my children. Then when I was deployed she went to court with my Mom and sister to get them Guardianship. Not only has she gone the extra mile, when I wanted both kids with me in Spain she went to court to make sure I could take them.
