“What drew me to Bonnie Mantel was that she was referred as the “Bulldog Lawyer,” and that’s what I needed. She immediately put herself between my spouse and I so that my stress level could go down. She didn’t let the other attorney control the process, and she stood up for my rights. She anticipated and prepared me every step of the way so I felt relaxed, even though it is a tough thing to go through. Bonnie really cares about people.”

— T.P. (San Diego)

“Kim is an experienced, competent attorney. I trusted her implicitly with my case and was so happy I was referred to her by a friend. I highly recommend Kim for her honest and straightforward approach. She handled my case professionally, and I am very happy with her services. ”

— Natasha, family client, 2014

“I had a very complicated case that required a great deal of understanding, care and attention. Bonnie was able to turn a bad situation into something that I no longer look upon as a negative in my life. She didn’t sugarcoat things and explained possible scenarios and options, which made me feel prepared. Bonnie genuinely cared about my case and dedicated a lot of attention to the various details. My divorce process was smoother than I could ever have imagined.

I’m really impressed with Bonnie’s work habits, negotiation skills, and her truthfulness. I never felt like just another client—she made me feel like I am the most important person in the world. That’s the kind of care and dedication that makes her stand out from the rest.

I will never forget Bonnie, not only as my attorney, but as a sympathetic and understanding human being, that made an enormous difference in my life.”

— L.K. (San Diego)

“I have been a client of Kim since 2007/2008. She is a wonderful lawyer, and gives very useful advice. She explained the law in plain, simple words at every stage.

“Kim Staron handled my child custody case with extensive knowledge and excellent care. She is a skillful negotiator and really seemed to care about me and what I was going through. She always had my child’s and my best interests at heart and was extremely professional. I would recommend her to anyone!”

— Deanna, child custody client, 2013

“Bonnie was great in helping me through a difficult time, and I know I can count on her to be there for me if there are issues in the future.”

— C.D. (San Diego)

“I am entirely pleased with the experience I had with Ms. Staron. She was professional, highly knowledgeable, efficient, thorough, and even creative with her approach to my dissolution case. I would definitely recommend her for any legal issue and would use her again if needed (and plan to in the future when my military ex-husband’s situation changes).”

— Kristy, divorce client, 2013

“Bonnie is an excellent attorney! She truly cares about her clients, and works extremely hard to protect their interests while balancing what is fair and reasonable for all parties involved. I have recommended her to a friend that was facing a divorce, and he was pleased with her services as well.”

— C.F. (San Diego)

“Kim Staron helped me understand my rights. She carefully advised me on the exposure I could experience legally while honoring my personal needs for an amicable outcome.”

— Michael, divorce client, 2012

“Kim is great. She actually called and gave me about 30 minutes over the phone and didn’t even charge a dime. Every other attorney I contacted wanted $350-400 for the initial consult. Not Kim—she called me up the same day, and we spoke at length regarding my situation. She was extremely up front with me, didn’t beat around the bush, and gave solid advice. Thanks, Kim, for the honest and direct advice. More attorneys should take a look at how you do business.”

— Daniel, divorce client, 2012

“My ex-wife served me with papers asking the court to grant supervised visitation with my daughter. Finding an attorney within days was a little frightening being I knew no one in the area who could recommend someone (I live out of state). So I turned to reviews, and luckily, I stumbled upon Kim. She is an amazing attorney. Through her hard work and vast knowledge of law, I ended up with custody of my daughter. She was always quick to reply back to emails or phone calls. She always kept me informed of each step, and her dedication and experience are second to none!”

— Child Custody case, 2012

“During what I consider a very traumatic period of my life, Kim managed, in a most efficient manner, the unexpected divorce initiated by my former spouse. Kim responded to each request, whether by e-mail, telephone, or visit, almost immediately. Her expertise with legal negotiations—legal, personal and financial support—cannot be overstated. I would recommend Kim for any family law action, as well as referrals for other legal matters.”

— Frank, divorce client, 2012

“I am so thankful to have Kim as my lawyer. She came highly recommended to me from two other people at the Fortune 500 company that I work for. She was able to negotiate several agreements outside of court with an extremely contentious opposing counselor. Kim is incredibly knowledgeable regarding the law. Kim keeps up on changes to the law. She is extremely efficient and does not make any false promises.”

— Family Law Client, 2011

“Kim handled my divorce in 2009 (I am male) and provided superior service. Her legal advice was always relevant, timely, and in my best interest. It wasn’t about Kim’s bottom line, but what was best for me. She never kept me waiting (even with my vast array of questions), was a zealous advocate on my behalf, made me feel completely comfortable, and I believe that at the end of the day I was well-represented.”

— Charlie, divorce client, 2010
