About Me

Picking your advocate is the most important decisions you can make in moving your case forward.   You need an advocate who can understand the issues most important to you and who can fight to help you meet your end goal.  You need someone who knows how to fight, but just as importantly someone who knows strategically when not to fight.  Picking and choosing your battles is key in any family law litigation.  I am a Certified Family Law Specialist, sworn to practice in all courts in California and the United States Supreme Court who is compassionate, knowledgeable (of appeals, litigation and alternatives to litigation), strategic, efficient, effective, and excited about getting you results.  I would love to discuss your matter with you, possible strategies for resolution (as litigation may not be appropriate in every matter) and whether we could compatibly work together.  Give me a call.

    I worked with Kendra on a conservatorship matter for one of my clients and she was a consummate professional. I have referred several clients to her to help with conservatorship matters.

  • Shahram Michael Miri

    I had the opportunity to discuss some cases with Ms. Thomas and found her to be very knowledgeable, thorough and congenial. I particularly enjoyed how easy she was to talk to, she was not some fire-breathing dragon attorney as often portrayed on television. I would definitely recommend her to any client seeking a litigator in the Los Angeles area.
