Anne Kiley has been practicing family law for over 25 years, and has been a certified family law specialist since 2001.
She recognizes the unique challenges presented by family law and has a unique ability to counsel clients through the complex and emotionally charged issues that arise during the proceeding.
Kiley is well known for being direct and efficient. She believes most cases can be resolved without trial, but knows when a case cannot be settled and has the skills to prepare and bring a case to resolution either way.
She believes that the relationship between a client and attorney is of paramount importance and to be successful requires trust and respect. A client deserves communication, responsiveness, guidance and an understanding of the proceeding to make educated decisions. Kiley also believes knowledge of the law and the rules of court are a critical component of proper representation and she is meticulous in her dedication to studying and understanding family law.
Her steadfast commitment to professionalism has led to numerous honors and awards. Kiley has an AV rating by Martindale-Hubbell for professional excellence and ethical standards. She has also been recognized by Los Angeles Times Magazine as a Southern California “Super Lawyer” for the past 10 years, and as one of the top 50 women lawyers in Southern California since 2011. Additionally, Kiley has been named to “Best Lawyers in America” since 2007.
