Domestic abuser’s sentence too lenient, claims victim

Many people who are victims of domestic violence in Los Angeles are reluctant to come forward or to involve the police and press charges against their abuser. One reason crimes such as this often go unreported is that these cases can be difficult to prosecute. Those who have suffered violence or abuse at the hands of a loved one are then left with a feeling that justice has not been served.

Sonoma County custody case takes tragic turn

While many believe that separation and divorce may serve to cool tensions between married couples in Los Angeles, often the opposite is true. The same feelings may spill over into matters such as alimony, asset division and child custody. Such a scenario can be particularly troublesome in custody matters because it can affect the children involved. When tensions rise over custody disputes, the fear may become that one’s apparently misguided opinions of what may be best for his or her children (coupled with the negative emotions he or she may harbor towards his or her ex-spouse) may prompt something drastic.

Tips for successful visits with noncustodial children

If you are like many California parents, you may be gearing up for a summertime visit with your noncustodial child. Summer is an ideal time for many parents to reconnect with children who may live far away during the school year, and there are steps you can take to make the most of your limited time together. At Thomas Law Offices, we understand how important it is to maintain relationships with children who do not live in your home, and we have assisted numerous clients in navigating the complexities that sometimes come with doing so.

Social Security benefits in same-sex divorce

The Supreme Court decision in 2015 that allowed same-sex couples across the nation to marry also has implications for same-sex couples in California who are getting divorced. As Investment News reports, for couples who were married before the recognition of same-sex unions across the country, things can become very complicated.

Domestic violence, immigration and divorce

When it comes to divorce, each case is unique. For example, some couples may not have children, while others will go through a bitter dispute over child custody. Furthermore, there are other unique considerations, such as those who immigrated to the U.S. to get married. Unfortunately, some people in Los Angeles who have immigrated worry about the potential consequences of splitting up with their spouse, even if they are subjected to domestic violence. As a result, it is pivotal for everyone in this position to understand their rights.

Not only can she quickly take in information, she can also think outside of the box to implement an effective game plan…. - Joseph, a Corporate client

  • Amazing Family Law Advocate!

    Kendra is a very thorough attorney. She paid great attention to detail. She is a pitbull in the courtroom and received compliments from the judge. We won a majority of our motions. I found her to be reasonable and understanding. I highly recommend her!- William, a Divorce client (5 star review)

  • One of the Best Advocates Around!

    I had a complicated case with a lot of assets. We had a business to divide and could not make heads or tails of it. My previous
    attorney messed up the case. However, when we found Thomas Law, the attorney was able to get to the bottom of how our assets should be divided.
    When Ms. Thomas presented the case, the judge realized that she knew her stuff. I had a very good experience with this firm.- Mae, a Family client (5 star review)

  • Competence! The Best Family Law Attorney Around!!

    When I first came to Kendra, was in a panic state. However, after meeting Kendra, I panic no more. I was in a case, where I was being worked “real good”, with an ex who is relentless with absolutely no morals. However, after being in the courtroom with Kendra, I do not believe that he will ever take me back to court. We got everything we wanted. Kendra knew what to ask and how to strategize the case. I would HIGHLY recommend Kendra to anyone involved in a high conflict divorce and/or child custody dispute.- Sharon, a Family client (5 star review)

    I am so grateful to have found Attorney Kendra Thomas to help me through a difficult divorce. She was amazing in getting me the justice I deserved. I have never heard of an attorney that returns calls promptly however Ms. Thomas and her assistant return calls in the same day. She is brilliant both in her intellect and strategy. I will continue to use her in ANY legal matter I am engaged in.- Mary, a Family client (5 star review)
