Kim was everything I could have asked for in a lawyer and more. Kim walked me through every step of the legal process which I had little knowledge of and the truth was heard by the judge. Kim gave my family and I the results we had hoped for... To provide a better opportunity for my daughter. Her staff was equally as attentive and efficient.

Kim is so awesome. She has been with me every step of the way in this process. I trust her knowledge and experience to help me make the correct decisions with my case. I would recommend Kim to anyone who is going through a child custody or visitation case.

Great on all the simple matters to family law (I.e. Child Custody Modification, Child Support, and Divorce), but a total let down on the legal advice offered for on my move-away request matter. Although legal advice is no guarantee for any client in any legal mater, it wouldn't hurt to have a lawyer who believes in the case and not capitulate to opposing counsel(s) recommendation for an partial evaluator with no known public record on important legal matters [the opposing counsel in our case had worked with the evaluator on previous cases prior to this ours ("Hello" special interest)]. Not to mention, I had to pay her extra for errors in my custody order because there was no thorough review of the opposing counsels draft.
If you want a knowledgeable, strong litigator and or someone impersonable, then go with Kim. If you want knowledgeable, strong litigator and someone with good customer service skills...then keep searching for another family law attorney. It took her two weeks to respond to my e-mails and toward the end of my experience in our case, surprisingly she had her inexperienced associate communicate and represent me at ex parte hearings. Nice kid, but that's not what you want going into a court room with a zealous opposing counsel.
I think a previous post said it best, started out great but disappointed towards the end. I wish you good luck.

I have hired Kim Marie Staron on two separate occasions, both for family law. She is a true professional and very knowledgeable about the laws and the judicial system. She created a comfortable environment and kept me informed on every aspect throughout the entire process. She has continued to give advice as needed and has always been only a phone call away. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking legal advice or representation.

I have worked with a few Family lawyers in San Diego. My case was very difficult. Divorce, Custody, Visitation, Appeals as well as DCSS factors. Kim was always the smartest person in the room. She was always prepared, poised and passionate. Kim operates at a very high level of Integrity which was demonstrated as she virtually humiliated opposing counsel based on the fact she knew more, was more knowledgeable and just cared more. Every time we went to court our outcome was very favorable. Just being a good person and honest does not help you in court. having the right Attorney that can illustrate all the legal aspects to the Judge is critical. Kim Marie Staron is highly recommended for all she has done for me. I have spent hundreds of thousands over the past 6 years and will never go to family court without Kim Marie Staron.

I had a difficult case and my previous attorney was very passive in courtroom while the opposition was over-aggressive and making false allegations. I had basically a lost case with opposition having filed a plethora of false allegations and multiple motions to bog down the court. The first day after meeting Kim and retaining her doing substitution of attorney, I was driving back home, found some hope and had tears of joy in my eyes. She was almost like God-sent. Two weeks later, Kim was in court to represent me, she had not only found all the problems in the case, she requested the court to perform housecleaning on duplicate motions cleaning up at least 4 dates off the calendar. She then cracked her whip in court with her strong, assertive voice. While in court, I once again had tears of joy, hearing my voice being represented in court so effectively and in a truthful way. She is better than the other attorneys who claim to be on national top 4% list. Effective, no-nonsense and professional if you're on the truthful side.

Kim has to be the best attorney I've ever had, and I have had many. She is no nonsense, down to business, and looks after your welfare and best interest. I had a somewhat difficult case and Kim knew all the in's and outs of the law regarding the matter. I won every topic she asked for. I could not believe it. She is Very impressive and confident speaker. The judge knew she knew her job. I have already given her name to one of my friends, and I will continue referring her. Thank You Kim :)

Kim is an experienced, competent attorney. I trusted her implicitly with my case and was so happy I was referred to her by a friend. I highly recommend Kim for her honest and straightforward approach. She handled my case professionally and I am very happy with her services.

Kim was good at first, but then it became apparent that her goal was to drain me of every penny I had, then force me to settle. She was very skilled at making me think we had a great case, and then charging me for useless actions. I wasted all my money on a lawyer who was just spinning my wheels the whole time. Would not recommend!

I have been a client of Kim since 2007/2008. She is a wonderful lawyer and gives very useful advice. I am not a family law expert guy. She explained me each and every law in plain simple words and at every stage of our case progress, she made sure my rights as father and my sons rights as son are well protected. I am happy that I selected Kim as my lawyer. Even now when I went to her for post judgement decisions cases she helped me a lot by providing me value comments and advice. I am grateful to Kim for her honest and helpful advice. Thanks a lot Kim! -altaf
