Kate - I am very relieved that the case settled yesterday. It feels like a huge burden has been lifted off my shoulders and I finally feel like I can focus my attention on the future and getting my life back on track. I did want to say thank you and that I sincerely appreciate all of your hard work and dedication in this case. I don't think we could have arrived at such a good outcome without your help. I would be more than glad to recommend you to any of my friends who may need your services. As much as I enjoyed working with you, I hope that I will not be hearing from you for a long time.

Thank you for all of your help throughout this process, Kate. I am grateful for all of your patience and understanding with all of the emotions I struggled with during our mediation sessions. Finalizing the divorce (or at least signing the documents) was difficult, but I feel incredibly lucky that we had you as our mediator and that we were able to stay friends and keep the family relationships intact.

Kate is all I could want in a lawyer – knowledgeable, approachable and a true partner. She’s a first class human being, with empathy to understand your situation and thoughtful judgment to help you navigate tough situations. She’s not a selfish, win-at-all-costs shark; rather she is someone who will help you be successful in your case while feeling good about yourself, your situation and the world. I’d hire her again, if need be, in a second.

Thank you for your grounding presence last week. I had no idea what I was getting into. Thank you for being in the middle as our mediator. You offered so many good solutions and kept gently throwing water on the fire. You are good at this. I appreciate your service and professionalism.

Going to an attorney, divorce in my case, is always a hugely emotional experience. Good attorneys are those talented people who can sift through one’s world of emotions with compassion, and bring it down to earth into practical world of the law. Kate, in my experience, was not only a good attorney but a great attorney for just that! My divorce was fraught with multiple problems, loaded with pit falls, and had international complications to boot–all of which Kate handled swiftly, easily, with minimum calls and paperwork, and to a good outcome. I’m highly recommending Kate for all your family law situations, you won’t be sorry!

Kate Rockas has gone above and beyond as my lawyer during my divorce and custody case. Kate has been my “rock” during this challenging and difficult time. Kate is always available and makes sure everything is done thoroughly and on time. She is committed to my case and well prepared for any twists and turns that can occur. Kate has endless knowledge about the laws and procedures which helps makes the process less stressful. Kate is compassionate and understanding during difficult and emotional situations. Kate is honest, realistic, patient, and kind. Kate is the best family lawyer and I am thankful that I found her. If you need a family law lawyer, she is the one to have by your side.
I found Kate to be helpful, understanding, knowledgeable and consultative. She is efficient with her billable hours and very available. She has many years of experience in family which means there’s not much she hasn’t seen or experienced. At the same time, she’s completely willing to reach out to her colleagues for help if she thinks it will help your case. I would happily recommend Kate Rockas for your family law needs.

I highly recommend Kate Rockas. She is smart, strategic, experienced, and she cares about her clients. Kate was recommended to me by someone going through a divorce. Kate was representing his wife. He said she was “killing” him in court. Kate took my case, a very complex and high conflict custody dispute, despite the fact that other lawyers said that there was nothing they could do to help me. From our first meeting I knew that Kate was the right lawyer for me. At the time I felt like nobody understood my unusual situation, but Kate did. Kate possesses a rare combination of legal acumen and an understanding of human psychology and behavior that makes her counsel invaluable. I especially recommend Kate if you are dealing with a complicated situation that requires someone who can think “outside the box” or involves personality, or mental health issues. I cannot say how grateful I am that I found Kate, she is an expert at what she does, and she works extremely hard to secure the best interests of her clients.

Going through a divorce is strenuous enough. Not having the right attorney can turn the whole process into a real nightmare. I was able to witness this firsthand. My ex fired her first attorney and hired an attorney who only told her what she wanted to hear…. and then charged my ex as many billable hours as possible. Her attorney was unethical and continually tried to mislead the court. I on the other hand had found Kate… who did not tell me everything I wanted to hear but was spot on with how she thought my case would go and the outcome on each issue. She was honest and to the point with the court (which was clear to the court and viewed favorably for me). Kate has incredible foresight and negotiated most of our difficult issues with what I needed long term. With children in the picture, it was important for me to have a knowledgeable assertive attorney guiding me through the legal process. Kate excelled here. If you want to get through your divorce quickly, efficiently, and with the best possible outcome, you need to hire Kate. She knows the law and is well respected by each of the Judges and every family law attorney in Marin. She will give it to you straight, and let you make the final decision how you want to proceed, but she will give you the guidance you need to make the best choices.
I would like to acknowledge my sincere appreciation for the extra effort, professionalism and caring consideration that I received from Kate. From the beginning she was very comforting and I felt as if I was speaking to a close friend who truly cared about my situation. She was always responsive and understanding. She was straight forward and always had a positive attitude. She always gave 110% in everything she did for me. She was truly an angel sent to me to help me in my time of need and I would recommend her to anyone who needs help. I not only found a great attorney but I have also found someone I can truly call a friend.

In my experience with different family law attorneys, I found Kate to be very powerful, strong & effective without defamation or slander. Her eloquence proved to go so much further than vicious and hurtful strategies. Family law matters are so sensitive and her ability to take this approach did in fact avail me much more in the eyes of the Court. As a result my case was concluded with my best interests in mind and most importantly, the best interest of my child. I will almost certainly need a family law attorney in the future and will retain Kate again.

Kate Rockas represented my daughters in sensitive litigation involving their father. She was genuinely concerned for their welfare and did everything possible to secure their well-being. She stood up with heart, with integrity and with honor. She was well prepared and argued logically in court. If you want the strength and honor of a female Atticus Finch, you will trust Kate Rockas.
Kate was efficient, professional and most of all kind and understanding. When I did not know what to do next, where to turn and was completely in a spin, all of Kate’s professional and personal qualities were there to support me. Everything ran smoothly. She was just what I needed in this time of emotional strain.

Kate continually provides me with expert advice. She understands the nuances of my case, and doesn’t hesitate to “go to bat” for me when I need her representation for complex custody issues. Without her as my attorney I would have more stress and less opportunity to get the necessary results for my family.

Kate took on my divorce, which like many was full of complexities and emotions and she saw it through to completion. Kate always demonstrated tremendous competence and all the while was compassionate and caring in regards to my needs and concerns. Divorce is a very unfamiliar and stressful time and place for most of us and having someone like Kate representing me allowed me to understand the process and make clear decisions along the way. I would highly recommend Kate as a divorce attorney.

In 2007 I made the decision to dissolve my marriage of almost 20 years. This was an extremely emotional decision and it involved separating assets that had been held mutually. I was fortunate enough to have been referred to Kate Rockas. Kate methodically got the job done while maintaining a sensitive and reassuring demeanor. Kate was always available when I needed clarification on an issue or when I just needed someone to understand how I was feeling. I highly recommend Kate for any family law matter.
Kate Rockas fought for me and won. When my ex-husband left the country and tried to deprive me of money due in our divorce settlement, Kate quickly located an out-of-state of attorney and tied up the money until we are able to save my nest egg. Kate was there for me through the whole process during one of the lowest points of my life. She listened to my concerns and answered my many questions. Kate is straight forward and professional. Right from the beginning she explained all of my options (including options that didn’t include her services) and she laid out all of the potential costs. Kate led me successfully through the murky, unknown waters of the legal system and courts, helping me to get what I needed to sail forward with my life. I can never thank her enough.
