Kristen Przeklasa is a licensed attorney in California. She 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 Loyola 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.

Upon her graduation from law school, Kristen began exclusively practicing Family Law. After eleven years of practice, Kristen became a founding partner of OC Child and Family Formation Law Group, LLP.

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, surrogacy/ovum donation, and dissolutions. Kristen has first-hand experience of the joys and difficulties of adoptions, as she has assisted her own family members through the process. Kristen especially enjoys being a part of the journey each prospective adoptive parent and intended parent experience in finding and completing their perfect family.

Kristen attributes her dedication to children and families to her own supportive family. As a child, she relocated with her family to Southern California from Chicago, Illinois, where she was born. Kristen is a Chicago Bears fan, enjoys traveling, reading, spending time with her family and friends, and playing with her niece, nephew, and dog.

100% recommend Kristen! ... a kind, skilled & exceptionally competent family formation attorney!
Thank you, Kristen Przeklasa for helping me obtain legal clearance on my IVF journey! I am thrilled to have found OC Child & Family Law... referred by another trusted attorney friend of mine. Kristen was kind, compassionate, and extremely knowledgable about the complexities regarding my situation to become a SMBC, with the help of my sister as an egg donor. Kristen drafted our agreement within 48 hours, helped me find another attorney for my donor who also offered a fast turnaround... and in just a few days, I was able to get the legal clearance required for my fertility clinic. All for a very reasonable price... I am so grateful. Other law firms quoted me higher rates, and a 2-3 week turnaround! Kristen treated me like a friend, was easy to reach by phone for any questions, and provided exceptional service for a fair rate. I would highly recommend Kristen and her partner Sahar to anyone in need of family law legal services... it's so refreshing to meet lawyers who genuinely care about their clients. Hoping I get pregnant soon, I will be happily working with Kristen for all of my family planning needs in the future.

Excellent
Kristen was detailed, present, and engaged through the entire ordeal of my child custody battle. She answered emails and calls at all hours, damped my fears and kept me moving forward throughout. I am very pleased to recommend her to others.

Attorney in my corner
It's never easy getting a divorce. I can say it was the most stressful event I have gone through. However, having Kristen in my corner helped to minimize my stress level. I knew she was looking out for my best interest. She was very knowledgeable about the law. When my Ex's attorney tried to pull some funny business, she nixed it immediately. Kristen was always available. She was able to see me when I needed to consult with her in person. Emails and phone calls were returned promptly. Nothing worst than a non responsive attorney. The entire office staff was very courteous and professional. It was a good feeling knowing that I had good representation. Someone who was fighting for me. I really am glad Kristen was there for me.

Mediation
Kristen and her staff made what would otherwise be a very stressful divorce situation go as smooth as possible. She explained the various different aspects of each area and what we could expect.

Satisfied Client
Kristen represented my case with concern and knowledge. When necessary, she was extremely quick to act on the case. She was very calm and throughly explained her actions and that of the court. I am very satisfied with the work she did for me. My former lawyer was unable to continue due to her terminal illness. This firm came highly recommended. I had complete confidence in their ability. I was able to focus on being the best parent possible.

Caring, knowledgable, organized and honest.
Kristin helped with my guardianship case and went beyond to answer all my questions and was actually my backup attorney for when my attorney was in court. She spent countless time with my case even though another attorney was actually mine. She got back to me immediately with my answers and also went to court when my attorney was out. She totally knew my case even though she was just helping. I would highly recommend Kristen.
