Solid Integrity
Of the attorneys I've worked for, Ken is one of the few who keeps costs low, puts his clients first and expeditiously resolves cases in the best ways for his clients.

Excellent Attorney
I have had Kenneth Linthicum as an attorney for seven years. He has handled many issues - gas, oil and mineral rights, trust, end of life matters, elder law issues - and has always provided excellent advice. What I appreciate most about Kenneth is his integrity. I have referred others to him, who also found his counsel and service exemplary.

Best attorney
Ken is a excellent attorney and delivers results. He has helped me through many court hearings including divorce and additional court cases for custody disputes. He is very knowledgeable, listens and always delivers results. He is a God send.

Straightforward and Genuine Advice
Ken helped me through the most stressful time in my life and he did it with straightforward, honest advice and real class. The nature of the matter was a hostile child custody and visitation case. I cannot thank him enough for his wisdom and working within my budget. Most importantly, however, was his knowledge and guidance in family law and the court system in dealing with an aggressive "other" party. Ken is the attorney you want on your side. In my mind, what you get with him is advice on reasonable solutions that help you end the matter quickly and masterfully.

A Trustworthy Lawyer
I met Ken Linthicum through the Daly City Colma Chamber of Commerce for which Ken is an active member. I have personally consulted with Ken on real estate issues and he has always provided me with clear cut options that help me better prepare myself. Because of my confidence in Ken, I have referred him to several of my friends and clients and Ken has successfully assisted them in their legal issues in a timely and expeditious manner. Ken is my go-to lawyer for any legal issues because he has my complete trust and confidence.

Ken met me in the midst of a very emotional,difficult divorce. He was professional,efficient and extremely knowledgeable about the law. I so appreciated his professionalism and interacting with him was so easy and calm. He made a very stressful situation less stressful by his demeanor and attitude. I would highly recommend Ken to anyone who needs an expert lawyer with great experience and talent in all areas of the law!!!

Great lawyer custody issues.
Ken, Did a great job for me when the mother of my children was attempting to submit false accusations of me being an unfit father in order to gain full custody of our too children. He knows a lot of the judges and has great experience, and provides good personalized service. I watched him get yelled at in the court hall way my ex-wifes 5 cent lawyer and he stayed calm and cool and in the end he sorted out the other lawyer. Tom

| Consulted Attorney
I was very disappointed with Ken's demeanor and approach. He came out in to greet me and was extremely unprofessional. Saggy jeans and a t-shirt. He gave me his opinion and about me and the judge. He had no interest in helping me beyond saying hello. I personally feel that after 15 min with this guy he has not had enough cases and years experience with family law cases. I would not recommend him. Hes needs many more years experience.

Response from Kenneth Linthicum March 19, 2017
I am sorry I did not meet your expectations at our one meeting. I am sorry my recommendations were not what you wanted to hear. I know you are going through a stressful time. I did return your call after our meeting in which you asked me more questions about your case. I wish you the best of luck in your case.
