I have handled employment law cases for over 30 years. My experience extends from reviewing offers of employment and employment agreements to preparing and filing claims with State and Federal agencies related to employment discrimination based upon race, national origin, age, gender, sexual harassment, religion, and mental or physical disabilities.
As I have described under employment law, I have handled numerous suspension and revocation of licenses for doctors, dentists, dental hygienists, nurses, teachers and real estate agents. I have prepared responses to complaints brought before the Administrative Law Judges regarding these professions and I have represented these
I have represented clients in all areas of family law, including petitions for dissolution, custody and child support issues, and negotiated Marital Settlement Agreements. In drafting family law matters, I have also drafted Temporary Restraining Orders and Permanent Restraining Orders on behalf of clients related to the marital dissolution and child visitation issues.
I have represented and provide guidance through careful estate planning for clients. I have drafted wills and trusts, wills with testamentary trusts, living trusts, amendments and codicils in revising or revoking trusts and wills, charitable trusts, trust set up for children and education or for other purposes, and documents regarding deeds of conveyances of real property and conflicts regarding the sale of real property.

I have represented various business owners and individuals regarding land use planning and development before Cities and Counties and other public entities. I have garnered years of experience working for the County Counsel’s Office in Contra Costa County and I was the Assistant City Attorney for So. San Francisco. Land use planning matters
I handled diverse cases regarding eldercare including preparing powers of attorney for healthcare and financial matters. I counseled, as well as, aided families in finding appropriate nursing homes and assisted living facilities for their loved ones. With such matters, my office has also prepared conservatorship, as well as drafted contracts for live-in caregivers particularly for those who served around the clock.
With over three decades of experience and expertise as an attorney, in every area of law that I have practiced I have self-mediated, represented clients at mediation and arbitration, mediated between parties and negotiated settlements in a vast majority of cases.

I am not a very good writer, but if I were there would only be one word to describe the Law Offices of Elladene Lee Katz……”OUTSTANDING”. I would advise anyone in need of a Premier Attorney to contact the Law Office of Mrs. Katz. As a previous client, I can say that Mrs. Katz and her staff shall, and will do everything and anything for their Clients. Mrs. Katz actually takes the time to talk with clients and give them her attention and help that they need. More so she is the most intelligent
person I have ever met. I honestly felt relief after our first meeting. Most Attorneys do not do that. Mrs. Katz did. As I stated her level of intelligence of the “Law” is extreme. I am fortunate that she was my Attorney. It is my honor to endorse the Law Firm of Elladene Lee Katz. My wife and I have relocated from the SF Bay area and hope that Mrs. Katz expand's her offices to help the many people in need of her talented
services. Mrs. Katz is the ONLY Attorney I know of that treats her clients as friends
and not just "Clients". That is rare to find from an Attorney. Mrs. Katz successfully won my case when NO other attorney would take it. In my opinion Mrs. Katz and her Staff are the BEST Law Firm in California, if not the Country !
I highly recommend Elladene Katz! She will level the playing field for a client who needs legal representation in a difficult situation! I want to thank Elladene for assisting and guiding me through my employment dispute against my employer of nearly thirty years. As a dedicated, exemplary, extremely productive and highly recognized employee for all of those years, I never, ever expected to be retaliated against, slandered and defamed by my employer due to my age and ethnicity. Elladene quickly assessed my situation and gave me extremely sound legal advice. I retained her and, with her representation, Elladene was able to settle my dispute with a satisfactory outcome. Elladene possesses an acute understanding and knowledge of employment law. She is extremely detail oriented and an active and intense listener with exceptional memory retention who takes very copious, detailed notes. She ensured that the discriminatory treatment that I was subjected to by my employer was accurately and clearly conveyed. MORE importantly, Elladene is a genuine person with great empathy and a BIG heart! She was a constant pillar of support that gave me CONIFDENCE and INSPIRED me! She was ALWAYS available to answer questions or give me a pep talk when doubt crept into my thoughts! Elladene is driven to uphold the law and is willing to work hard to make sure that her client gets the best help possible and in a timely way!
It is my pleasure to write this review for Elladene Katz. I had a difficult and serious situation at work recently. I met with Elladene and she listened to my situation and understood immediately what was transpiring. Elladene took the time to explain my legal rights and at the same time took a personal interest in my well-being. Elladene fought hard for me and I had complete trust in her. Elladene was my saving grace and I will always be extremely grateful. I highly recommend Elladene.
