Ms. Kay represented me in a two year long divorce case. My case was complicated and time consuming. It was also a very emotional experience. The emotional support I received from Ms. Kay and her staff throughout my ordeal was above and beyond. The preparation and attention to detail provided by Ms. Kay and paralegal Ms. Larissey was above excellent and clearly influenced the positive outcomes in my case. I would highly recommend Ms. Kay without reservation. She will give your case the attention and legal expertise you deserve.

I like most pragmatic people thought that I could work through my divorce all on my own without involving attorneys', however I quickly learned, that was a mistake.
Right away on my first consultation with Debra, I felt that she completely understood the dynamic nature of my unusual divorce case, I instantly felt relieved that she seemed so supportive of me after hearing me out. In addition I also appreciated that she wasn't critical of past legal blunders on my part, or for wasting almost two years trying to mediate my own divorce. Ultimately I hired her because she helped me see how to reach my legal goals with her help.
Dealing with her support staff has been very pleasant and I feel fortunate to have their talents on my team. My work schedule makes it very hard for me to be available during office hours and take calls but her staff have been flexible, understanding and willing to work with me to meet my needs. Moreover they keep my totally up to speed with all the changes in my case. Its been occasionally challenging to navigate through legal forms and other needed/required paperwork asked of me from the opposing counsel or the court, but thankfully Pamela (Debra's Paralegal) has been there for me every time I've needed her, she is my resource and guide to meet those dead lines and to connect ideas for my next court appointment.
I've had several legal victories in court since I've worked with Debra on my side, thanks to her ability at keeping my focus and my head all together before court, when my emotions and fears are at their worst. I greatly appreciate her emotional intelligence and legal knowledge, which is why I wanted to share my working experience about Debra Kay and her incredible legal team.

Debra's experience and professional were evident from our first meeting. She was patient in explaining both the process and what to expect as the case moved forward. In the end I was very happy with the representation by not only Debra but her extremely competent staff as well. I would refer Debra to anyone seeking representation in Family Law.

Throughout a very contentious divorce, my ex hired and fired 5 different lawyers. I had the opportunity to compare and contrast the style and capabilities of each of them. At every turn, I was glad to have Debra and her team in my court. My situation was complicated, involving custody of several children, distribution of assets, and spousal and child support. Debra proved that she is skilled in all aspects of family law. She dealt with the other side firmly, effectively and ethically. She understands the human side of divorce, particularly on the children. Debra was always a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend to anyone considering divorce to consult with Debra.

I sought Ms. Kay's help for child custody and support issues because I was looking for a straightforward attorney who could lay out a clear plan to help resolve my problems and get the results I was looking for, and I got exactly that. I couldn't be more pleased with Ms. Kay's representation of me. Despite the games, delays, and unethical behavior from opposing counsel to prevent me from getting a fair resolution, Ms. Kay was able to cut through all of that with the Judge and get exactly what I asked of from the court through vast knowledge of our legal system and sticking to the facts. It's clear Ms. Kay knows the Ventura courts and personnel well which was an enormous help with my case. She clearly had a rapport with the Judge in my case. She is extremely knowledgeable, easy to talk to, thinks quickly on her feet in court, and is always available for questions. I am so happy I hired her to help me. When you meet with her, you will feel at ease knowing you are getting great help. In court, you will feel confident she is on your side. She is excellent at explaining your position in court, so you will be happy to be in court with her, unless you are sitting on the opposite side, as my ex-spouse had to find out the hard way. Last but not least, she will do all she can to resolve your issues quickly outside of court to save time and money, but if the opposing counsel will not cooperate or is making unreasonable demands, they will find out as I did that it is a mistake to do so. If you want a real attorney with exactly the results you are expecting, be completely honest with her about your situation and she will take care of the rest. If you're going against her, best of luck to you.

I have been a client and have referred a number of clients to Debra Kay. As an attorney myself, I respect Debra Kay's technical and courtroom experience and knowledge. Ms. Kay was very successful in my dissolution. I appreciate her skills and an emphasis on details. Ms. Kay's staff was courteous and very helpful.

Debra J. Kay represented me in my legal separation from my husband of many, many years. Throughout this difficult and emotional process I received emotional support from Ms. Kay and her staff and great communication, too. I was totally satisfied with the end result at court through Ms. Kays experience, caliber of excellence, diligence (I could go on with the adjectives) - greater outcome than what I expected.

Debra and her staff does not only win, they do it respectfully without games. They make you feel comfortable and calm before the overwhelming stress of having to deal with all the mess of a divorce, custody and going to court.
The staff walks you through each step, the loads of paper work all in everyday English. Then take your information and work magic.
Debra and her staff are real people and treat you like a person not a just a money pot. They have families and know how you feel and that helps a lot.
Bottom line... She wins and you're sane and if you have kids, they are safe and happy!
