Attorney Debra J. Kay received her Bachelor of Sciences degree cum laude in Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania, where she was a member of the Tau Beta Pi Honor Society. She then went on to earn her Juris Doctorate degree from Pepperdine University School of Law, where she received American Jurisprudence Awards in Evidence and Criminal Procedure, was an Associate Editor of the Law Review, was a member of the Phi Delta Phi Honor Society, and was on the Dean’s List.

In addition, Attorney Kay is a member of the Los Angeles County Bar Association, the Ventura County Bar Association, the East County Bar Association, and the Ventura County Family Law Bar Association.


Ms. Kay has been a Certified Specialist in family law since 1993, and has been practicing in courts throughout Ventura and Los Angeles counties since 1987. By solely focusing her practice on family law, Attorney Kay has the ability to represent clients through all aspects of the field including divorce, separation, child custody, child support, visitation, spousal support, fathers’ rights, paternity, and property division. She is prepared to assist clients from the first initial point of separation, all the way through the time when the divorce has already been finalized. Regardless of how complicated the situation may seem, when an individual retains the representation of Attorney Kay, she uses her 26 years of legal experience to help them obtain their most favorable outcomes. She understands how overwhelming it can be to have to go through a divorce and other family law matters, and is dedicated to providing clients with the compassionate service and effective legal counsel they deserve.
