I had several recommendations for attorneys and at the time Kerri was an unknown to me. She came as a recommendation from other very good Divorce attorney's who could not commit to the time and the complexity my case was likely to involve. As I talked with and consulted other attorneys Kerri's reputation for resolving and diffusing difficult cases convinced me she was the one I needed. Though Kerri was also busy I was pleased when her group was able to balance new clients to fit me in. I was also pleased Kerri took point on my case. I knew it took a team so as it turned out I got a great! Attorney with an awesome team behind her. I am so glad she took my case because through the three years of my complex and difficult case she always balanced her cases to ensure she and her team could do their best for her clients. I would like to think maybe I was special and though I hope so, I think all her clients feel the same way. Even if she wasn’t as good as she is, I would hire her for her experience, personal qualities and character. In the end I know she and her team did their best and are the best.

Lawyers gets divorced too, and when we do, Kerri is people's top pick. She is sensible, fair, and efficient. Her billing records are well done; you'll know what you are paying for and most importantly, you'll get quality work. Kerri is an excellent litigator; she represented me in an evidentiary hearing and knows how to draw out testimony and cross examine witnesses. I personally saw how the judges respect her and her reputation. She won't litigate if there is a cheaper, faster option, however, and provided good ideas on solutions to some challenging situations, including contested custody, visitation, and property settlement.

In October of 2012, I was faced with divorce after 7 years of marriage. I had no idea what I was doing, as no one ever imagines having to go through anything like this. I was fortunate enough to find Kerri, after I had spent 2 months with another attorney at a different office who had zero interest in returning calls or easing my mind through the difficult times I was facing, to say the least. I sought out Kerri, met with her for a consultation, and instantly felt calm and at ease. I just knew I was in good hands. Not only was she sympathetic to my emotional situation, but she truly knew what she was doing from a legal standpoint.
Through the process, she was able to handle so many different facets of my situation: a (then) 2 1/2 year old son and custody, drug issues with my ex-husband, a community property business and just a volatile situation all around. She was able to diffuse the situation, help me with the community property business in getting a fair buy out as well as alimony and child support, and most importantly, get primary physical custody of my son.
At all times, Kerri (and her amazing staff) responded to emails quickly, always returned calls, was always concerned about my well being and had a game plan in place at all times. There was never a moment where I felt scared in the uncertainties, because I had Kerri representing me. I was safe with her.
My divorce ended up settling peacefully because Kerri knew how to handle my ex-husband and his attorney. Now that the process is over, and things are much more calm, I know that I am in the position I am in because of Kerri and her hard work. I received alimony, am still receiving child support on a monthly basis and my son is able to see his dad on a regular basis.
I have had other friends who have gone through divorce and have heard the nightmare stories about their attorneys. I have never hesitated once in referring them to Kerri. I would recommend her to anyone. She is by far, the best out there. Truly second to none!

KERRI IS VERY NICE BUT FAILED TO PROVIDE INFORMATION AS TO EXACTLY WHAT I WAS AGREEING TO IN MY SUPPORT ARRANGEMENT. I ASSUMED THAT
SHE WAS WATCHING AND ADVISING WHAT MY AGREEMENT SAID BUT THAT WAS NOT THE CASE.

Divorces are unfortunate, but I was incredibly fortunate have to found Kerri to be my attorney. Although my divorce was relatively low in assets, it was extremely high when it comes to the logistical complexity and emotional fraughtness of the issues to be resolved. In time I came learn that divorces such as mine are increasingly common as the byproduct of modern lives and families. And I could not have been in better hands. Kerri was incomparable in the depth and breadth of her knowledge and understanding of family law, her strength and finesse in legal representation, and most of all her personal character and integrity. She was as strong and eloquent in taking a stand in court (where she seemed to be universally liked), as she was patient and skillful around the negotiation table. And she worked absolutely tirelessly: even though she had many cases to deal with she always responded promptly and thoughtfully to my queries. Because of all this she successfully tackled a wide range of problems such as complex and unusual financial situations, international custody, extreme emotional and physical stress, and an erratic opposing counsel all at once. Looking back, I realize that Kerri somehow accomplished the seemingly impossible task of keeping us focused on the most critical issues at stake, while at the same time staying perfectly in tune with the various "moods" of a divorce as I experienced them. I was badly bruised at the onset of the divorce. Kerri and her team got my mojo back.

You don’t want to get a divorce, particularly when children are involved. If you have to get a divorce, you want it to be amicable. If you have to get an attorney, you hope you’ll be able to settle and never have to set foot in a courtroom. If you have to go to court, you hope that your legal representation is smart, honest and ethical, and that the process is over quickly and fairly. If you have to go to trial, you want your attorneys to be the most capable in their field and to reflect your values as well as your financial interests. If you don’t identify with the above sentences, stop reading this now. What I have to say doesn’t apply to you.
Two and half years ago, I separated from my now ex-husband and was hopeful that the divorce process would be straightforward. When it wasn’t, I was incredibly fortunate to have Kerri Strunk and Eileen Landau as my attorneys. Throughout a process that ended up taking two and half years, more than 15 appearances in front of the judge, and a three-day trial, I can say that Kerri Strunk and Eileen Landau provided me with the best possible legal representation.
Kerri and Eileen worked as team on my case, with Kerri as the lead attorney and Eileen primarily responsible for research and writing. Month after month, they were always well-spoken, well-organized, and well-prepared, commanding the respect of both the judge in my case and various opposing counsels. More than that, they represented me according to my values, so that although I had to go through the painful experience of litigation during the already painful experience of a divorce, the process didn’t break me. Not only did I emerge with the financial settlement to which my children and I were entitled, I also emerged with a public acknowledgement of the truth in my case, and the confidence that I acted with integrity throughout a process which compromises so many.
Six months after the end of my litigation, I am debt- free and have savings in the bank. My ex is seeing his children on a regular basis and paying regular child support as well as the equalization payments to which I am entitled according to the terms of our settlement. My children and I are safe and happy in our home and in our lives. I could not have imagined this was possible 2 years ago. Kerri Strunk and Eileen Landau created this positive outcome through their expert handling of my difficult legal situation, through their incredible work ethic, and through their uncompromising professionalism both in and out of the courtroom. I am a courageous and well-educated person, but I don’t think I would have had the strength to endure this process and achieve what I needed to for myself and my children had it not been for their outstanding legal counsel. It is an honor to endorse Kerri and Eileen and their work. I have the utmost respect for them and for what they do.
