I have been an attorney in the State of California since 1996, focusing exclusively in Family Law. I have appeared at hundreds of hearings and trials at courthouses located in Ventura and Los Angeles counties. Many of my cases have been high dollar cases involving such issues as business evaluations, forensic accounting analysis, custody evaluations, complex financial tracing, complex property divisions, and psychological evaluations. And, I also appreciate the needs of clients with less complicated cases.

My approach to all cases starts with an in-depth analysis of my client’s needs, their children’s needs, the financial needs, and the overall layout of the client’s standard of living. Once all pertinent detailed information is compiled, I fit the client’s profile into all of the Family Law statutes to get my clients everything they are entitled to by law. I attempt to settle the case before any Court appearances have taken place and when settlement is not possible I aggressively represent my clients at all hearings and trials.

I always keep the best interest of my clients in mind and these best interests are the prime driving force for me. I fight for the rights of my clients from the start of the case until the case is ruled upon by the Courts.

I am highly educated, well-spoken, and savvy when it comes to presenting my client’s case to both the opposing counsel and to the Court.

Great attorney
I worked with Kathleen for several years and retained her services for my case. She was very involved and made my case a priority. I felt as though I was her most important client even though she has a number of others. I would highly recommend Kathleen a great attorney.

Kathleen was empathetic to my complex case. She was very attentive and thorough with details of my case. Though i didn't always like hearing the possible outcomes, i appreciate that Kathleen was upfront and honest , which is a trait most lawyers don't practice. I would most definitely recommend Kathleen and more than likely will require her services again in the near future.

She is my attorney of choice
I have contacted, consulted with and hired a most excellent choice of attorney; Kathleen is intelligent, organized and thorough. I have never been so impressed with an attorney and I previously interviewed six. Kathleen has proven herself time and again in the battle field of court litigation and correspondence, she is professional, punctual, well spoken, sharply dressed and has my best interest at heart. I continue to work diligently to provide the necessary details needed for my case and she provides many up to date options for me to relay this information, including e-mail, text and person-to-person interaction. I can go on and on about her: she's classy, she is witty and polite, but I will end by stating that she is working to make my case the strongest it could possibly be and I am secure, confident and happy with her actions, honesty, personal mannerisms and a word of thanks.

Pick This Attorney
I interviewed several attorneys before hiring Kathleen Nakos for my divorce. She was the only one that answered all of my questions in a way that made sense. I am so glad I hired her. She wasted no time in preparing my case, doing all of the paperwork that is required by this court system. She got along with my ex’s attorney, but was very firm and aggressive in getting me what I wanted and was entitled to. Thanks Kathleen!
