Professional and Caring
When I was facing a nasty divorce and child-custody battle, I did a lot of online research and discovered that Gary Kearney was the most respected family-law attorney in the Pasadena area, highly rated by clients and peers alike. I retained him immediately after a brief consultation interview. Over the next couple of years, Mr. Kearney helped me not only to resolve the divorce to my satisfaction but also to combat my ex's attempts to stall, complicate, hinder, and vex the custody case over my son. Thanks to Mr. Kearney and his team's efforts, today I have 80% custody of my 14-year-old son and I'm very happy with the divorce settlement. In terms of demeanor, Kearney is extremely professional, poised, calm, and caring, and he was also very patient in answering my barrage of questions. I would also add that Kearney has a splendid legal support team that includes the delightful Laurie (paralegal) and Darlene (legal secretary), both of whom provided not only timely and efficient service but also sincere emotional support throughout the long ordeal. I was very fortunate and will be forever grateful to have had Gary Kearney and his team on my side.

"As Gary Kearney's law clerk during my time as a law school student, I got to know Gary as an ethical, honest, experienced, knowledgeable attorney who cares about his clients. Gary's clients are lucky to have a lawyer who knows so much about family law and who isn't afraid to take on the most complex matters. Gary also attempts to settle cases instead of only fighting battles."
