Caring and Compassionate
I went in for a consult and Kevin gave me the time to discuss the direction of my case. Not at all judgmental of the fact that I could not afford to hire him. Great guy!

More than I expected!
I highly recommend Mr. Gibbs as an attorney for Family Law matters. He was able to research and find laws that supported my unique case. Laws that other attorneys I spoke to either were not aware of or did not acknowledge. He also recommended a subpoena for loan documents which contradicted the income my ex was reporting to the court. I feel that he responded to my issues in a timely matter. (You’re not his only client and believe it or not, some people are in a more severe crisis than you are) He was very efficient and built such a strong case, we didn’t even have to go before the judge. We settled out of court and my kids got what they are entitled to.

Wonderful Atty
Was very good for me. Got my child support even higher with 2 less kids. Found that he is very easy to talk to and very nice as well. I would use again.

Unprofessional and negligent
I retained Mr. Gibbs back in October 2019 to represent me on a child custody issue. Luckily, all the details had been pre-negotiated prior to stepping foot in his office. All I needed from him was to write up the stipulation, get it signed by both parties, and submit to the court. 2 to 3 hour job, right? No, not even close. The other party was not represented by counsel at the time. So he decided to take a month or so to get to know her and her wants. Then he takes another 2 months to write the stipulation. This happened to be through the holidays and one of the children’s birthdays. I pleaded with him to stop wasting time and just submit the stipulation already. After the stipulation was submitted, I would call every other week or to see if the Judge had signed off on it yet. After the 3rd call I was assured that, “You will be the first to know as soon as it happened!” The underlying tone was, stop bothering me I’ll let you know. The judge signed the stipulation on March 18th of 2020. Kevin didn’t bother to contact me or inform me until May 11th. Almost 2 full months after the stipulation was signed. Then he blamed the delay on “Attorney Services” a document filing service he uses. By this time he has somehow eaten through the entire $7,500 retainer he required up front. This unprofessional behavior persists for almost another year with about an additional $10,000 in attorneys fees. In that entire 1.5 years of “representation” I’ve seen my children for a total of one supervised hour. Not to mention he allowed another specialist to get involved who was not apart of the original agreement, the written stipulation, or granted authority by the court. Just because my ex-wife did not like the Doctor who was agreed upon and appointed by the court’s treatment plan. Honestly, you can’t make this stuff up. Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere unless you’re willing to waste 1.5 years, $20,000, and be willing to put yourself in much worse position than you were before you ever met him. His behavior was so unprofessional and negligent that I’m planning on filing a complaint with the California State Bar, but I felt it necessary to warn others.

Does not return phone calls for MONTHS. I am serious. I called daily to get a response and his secretary even apologized repeatedly. If you are just a regular person getting a divorce you will have a very low priority. He also gives such vague advice that you live in a constant state of worry and fear. As your attorney, he has access to all of your asssets. He told me he would hold jewelry in lieu of another retainer, we had already gone through the first $5,000. Next thing I know he sent a promissory note for $15,000 after NOT RETURNING PHONE CALLS! Then he placed liens on my property when I did not sign.
