I was referred to Iris McKay because of her extensive experience with the complexities surrounding out-of-state post-divorce relocation with minors. Although she is not currently litigating, I was told that she would be a wealth of information and could help give me some direction. We ended up chatting for a solid hour not only about the law surrounding my case, but about life, motherhood, moving on after divorce, our children, our similarities, strengths, etc. etc. I felt so empowered after speaking to her - like I was speaking to an extremely intelligent coach! Had I been in the state of California when I was going through my divorce, I am 100% certain that I would have hired Ms. McKay on the spot. She is articulate, knowledgeable, kind natured, yet an absolute force to be reckoned with! Thank you again, Ms. McKay!

I don’t know about you, but I have some very high expectations when it comes to attorneys who either represent me or others I care about. Here are the qualities that I absolutely expect out of an attorney: ethical; highly intelligent (yet real/genuine); honest; direct, highly regarded by the Bench; strategically smart planner; artfully persuasive, articulate; organized; makes time for talking about my concerns; powerfully appropriate in Court (in dress, style, and mannerisms); maintains healthy boundaries for all clients (whether they like it or not); is willing to gently, yet assertively argue with her/his clients when needed, deeply understands and adapts to the wide spectrum of human responses that evolve during the long arduous divorce process, is not so busy that she/he has no time for talking with me, and has a deep well of professional associates to whom she/he can refer her/his clients when needed (e.g. Forensic Accountants, M.F.T’s, Psychologists, other attorneys when case-specific issues require such a referral to a specialist, etc.). Iris McKay, Esq. embodies all of the above. Her successful representation of me was nothing short of a class act. I have respectfully referred numerous people to her as a tip of my hat to her overall skills as a divorce attorney. In each and every one of those cases, the referent came back to me raving about the quality of service that was proved by Ms. McKay. I suspect there will always be a couple disgruntled people out there who will post reviews on sites such as this where they vent their frustration at the professional who told them the things they did not want to hear. I’ve suspect that most such nay-sayers came into the client/attorney relationship unwell, disturbed, dysfunctional, and angry in the first place. Sad for them, but nobody will ever meet their unrealistic expectations. When it came to Iris McKay, Esq., all of my and my referents’ expectations were surpassed. And we thank her.

I met Iris Mckay at a Divorce workshop, and after her very positive presentation which focused on looking forward in our lives to our future, I determined to engage her services.
She has extensive knowledge of the California Family laws and has represented me with integrity, composure and skill. She is patient, explaining everything that is going on and talks on my level without ever causing me to feel she is talking down to me. I have great faith and trust that she has my interests at heart, and knowing she is on my side gives me a sense of peace about the outcome of my divorce.
I have been extremely pleased with everything that she and her accomplished and able staff have done for me. I unconditionally recommend her to any person, woman or man, who is considering the painful decision to end their marriage. Iris McKay is an attorney who genuinely represents her clients. She is an excellent choice for a Family Law Attorney.

I don't have the honor of knowing Ms. Mckay well, but I suggest you investigate her credentials - as I have. She is an experienced family law attorney who answers to higher values from a thoroughly client centered perspective. Frankly, legal consumers need more family law attorneys like her, and the San Diego community is no doubt richer for her contributions.
James Bush, Litigation Attorney
Iris represented me in connection with my own divorce, and I highly recommend her. Not only does she have excellent lawyer skills and substantial family law knowledge, her focus is on obtaining expeditious and economical results for her clients.
