About Me

Kristen Przeklasa received her Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of California, San Diego with majors in both Political Science and Communications.


She was awarded a full academic Dean's Scholarship to attend Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, where she received her Juris Doctorate.


 


While attending law school, Kristen interned for a Family Law Judge of the Los Angeles County Superior Court where she observed court proceedings and reviewed case files. She also interned for the Public Counsel Adoptions Project, assisting foster parents with the adoption of their foster children.


 


Kristen joined A Center for Children & Family Law as a law clerk during the summer following her first year of law school and returned again the following summer. Upon her graduation from law school, Kristen became a full-time member of A Center for Children & Family Law as an Associate Attorney.


 


Kristen practices in all areas of children and family law with a major focus on children's issues, minor's counsel cases, custody matters, mediation, adoptions, guardianships, surrogacy/ovum donation, and dissolutions.


 


As a child, Kristen relocated with her family to Southern California from Chicago, Illinois, where she was born. She attributes her dedication to children and families to her own supportive family. Kristen has first hand experience of the joys and difficulties of adoptions as she has assisted her own family members through the process. Kristen is a Chicago Bears fan, enjoys traveling, reading, spending time with her family and friends, and playing with her little niece and dog.
