I first consulted with Mr. Kilpatrick about getting more custody of my child. I had 43% and wasn’t happy with new developments in his mother’s life. He looked over my case and was honestly told me that it was easy, no need for his services and gave me some advise. He turned me away instead of just taking my money.
Once I filed, she responded with a move away order. I again found myself in Mr. Kilpatrick’s office, this was a more serious matter and needed a lawyers touch. He and his office were very helpful and quick with getting all paperwork put together and filed. After the courthouse and the other parties attorney postponed we finally ended up in court. We spend well over 3 hours with witnesses and statements and going back and forth… Mr. Kilpatrick just hammered the other party over and over, non stop. They brought something up and he had a perfect counter for it. When Mr.. Kilpatrick was up the other lawyer was reaching for any objections he could to stop him.
Mr. Kilpatrick was always confident. What he told me would happen, did. I was able to walk out with full custody. Now I know my son will live in better condition, I have him enrolled in an amazing school and don’t have to stress or worry about his well being.
I would and have recommended him to anyone looking for a family law lawyer.
Michael is the best in the business! His service is outstanding and worth every penny! He helped me get sole legal and physical custody of my two little ones. Don’t go at it alone, get a lawyer, and not any lawyer go with the best! Go with Michael Kilpatrick.
Taking kids away from their mother in the state of California takes an act of god or a very skilled attorney, Mr. Kilpatrick is very professional, he represented me (dad) and did everything he told me he would, nothing was sugar coated and he didn’t waste any of my time or money, along with making me feel very confident and easing all my worries.
Mr. Kilpatrick spent a good deal of time with me, explaining the system and how it works. The legal system, in my view, is the problem. He was fair with me when I brought a charge on my account that I felt was unfair and immediately credited back the money, with no arguments or questions asked. He is a bull dog and not afraid to fight hard for you, as long as you follow his advice!
He’s a great person that goes all the way, and he is there to fight for you until he wins. He’s there for you. He’s the best attorney I’ve heard of and now after hiring him and seeing him fight for me I can honestly say he’s a great attorney and will honestly fight anyone because he is there to fight for you and no one else. If you want to win, hire him!
Mr. Kilpatrick has represented me since 2012 and has always followed through on what he said he would be able to do for me. Mr. Kilpatrick has helped me get exactly what I have asked for in court on multiple occasions. I couldn’t imagine trusting any other attorney to protect and represent my family’s interests.
Mr. Kilpatrick helps me a lot. I don’t know what all of these bad comments are about. Do you guys ever think that it’s the courts fault. I don’t trust the court systems they are whacked. Just saying do you guys ever think about the courts and their stupid stuff because everything I am telling kilpatrick he has done for me. It’s all about the courts not him just saying.
A stand up honest lawyer who cares about his clients. He steps into the courtroom and is a shark. While at court in the waiting area I’ve had strangers come up to me after they see me speaking to my lawyer and say “Damn that’s your lawyer! I wish I would have hired him instead he’s bad ass”. And I agree. He is badass.
Kilpatrick is the best in the business. He fought hard for me in my case. I got custody of my son – It was a process but I went from not being able to see my son to having custody and for a dad to get custody in California it’s rare. Highly recommended Mr. Kilpatrick. He can be a little pricey but it pays off at the end.
Mr. Kilpatrick is one of the top attorneys in Bakersfield. I lost horribly in my divorce then came back fighting with Kilpatrick, and now I have everything in my favor. He may cost a little more but the respect judges have for him is priceless!
After 30 years of working with scores of attorneys, I have seen and witnessed many of them in the courtroom. We hired Michael to handle a high-conflict family law matter based on his reputation as an aggressive advocate. We were not disappointed! After years of poor representation my wife finally found a litigator that wasn’t more focused on being friendly and splitting the baby. Our case was complex and he was extremely prepared and engaged. If you are looking for a bulldog, this is your man.
Hands down the best lawyer in town. He fought my annulment case and won every piece of it. Everyone says he is a bull dog when it comes to trial time. Best lawyer – he know his stuff.
Best and fastest attorney in Kern County. Got me everything I wanted plus more than expected, and continues providing great service when I need him. Definitely a bulldog and will fight for you!
Mr kilpatrick, his associates, and his office staff have been nothing but wonderful to me! When you have questions or concerns they are very helpful and get back to you quickly.
I have retained Mr. Kilpatrick since 2012 and he has always gotten me exactly what I have asked for in court.
Top notch attorney – truly gets the job done the right way hands down.
He did a great job protecting my children from a very ineffective minors counsel, a gender biased judge, and a completely dysfunctional family law court system. He was very highly recommended by attorneys Klink and Rubio.
He is tough and will not back down from fighting for justice when he believes it must prevail. There were a lot of other issues besides the child custody. There was real estate matters that were very complicated and he handled them like a champion. Mr. kilpatrick is a good family law attorney, especially when there’s children involved.
