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. 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.

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.

Divorce is never pleasant no matter how amicable the persons involved vow to keep it. You are so unique and I respect your professionalism and abilities immensely. Your sweet nature kept us calm. I appreciate how you led us gently through each step of the process involved informatively.
