Approaching relationship issues with respect

We are proud of the fact that California is one of the more progressive states in America when when it comes to same-sex couples. At Thomas Law Offices, we try to embody the ideals that led our legislators and judges to their landmark decisions, treating each relationship with the respect it deserves.

As you know, same-sex couples face all of the same troubles as mixed-sex partners when a relationship ends. These problems often include:

  • Determining who retains custody of children
  • Division of assets
  • Visitation agreements
  • Spousal support

However, we often see that these issues are more complicated when it comes to our same-sex clients. For example, we encounter more cases involving adopted children when our clients are in same-sex marriages. We also tend to see many cases in which one or both of the partners has a high net worth: Divorce processes are often more challenging when more money is involved.

One issue we are beginning to see more often is gray divorce between same-sex couples. People change, and aging relationships begin to wear. We realize that marriage was not always legal for same-sex couples, and that some partners chose not to marry after the laws allowing such a union were passed. This is why we apply the same diligence to issues facing domestic partnerships as we would for any marriage. Of course, we also see short-term domestic partners come to us for mediation or conflict resolution.

At our office, we treat both individuals and challenges with care and respect. We find that this is often the best starting point for a successful resolution. Please continue to our primary site to learn more.

  • Best Attorney in the Valley!

    Kendra Thomas is one of the best attorneys I have ever worked with. Kendra and her team at Thomas Law Offices are compassionate and able to get to the heart of the matter. 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)
