Angelo, Kilday & Kilduff was formed in 1997 by Laurence L. Angelo, Bruce A. Kilday and Carolee G. Kilduff. The three founding partners have practiced together for more than twenty-five years, combining their skills as lawyers with a sense of humor and lasting friendship. As part of the original written partnership agreement for AKK, Larry Angelo agreed not to talk (read gloat) about the low payment in his very old mortgage; Bruce Kilday agreed not to make more than three jokes at any one gathering (he claims this is limited to corny jokes, but either way he exceeds this number); and Carolee Kilduff (a recovering clothes-horse) agreed to refrain from utilizing the firm credit card for her shopping excursions. The penalty is lunch at the partner’s expense.
AKK’s attorneys defend public entities and private businesses in all types of tort cases, including accident cases; and specialize in complex civil rights, police liability and employment cases, including sexual harassment, equal protection, wrongful termination, and discrimination claims. Our attorneys have considerable experience appearing in state and federal courts, as well as in administrative proceedings. We draft policies and help clients avoid litigation by dealing proactively and effectively with controversial issues and employee discipline matters. AKK also has attorneys experienced in EEO investigations, special education law, appeals, and in serving as hearing officers.
Over the years, AKK has represented more than 100 cities, counties, school districts and other public entities in California, including departments, entities and employees of the State of California. AKK also has an experienced and well-respected appellate practice before state and federal courts of appeals and the California and U.S. Supreme Courts.
AKK prides itself on quality legal representation at fair rates. Our attorneys enjoy working collaboratively with clients and risk managers to review each case and determine the optimum method of resolving the matter efficiently, whether it is by way of negotiated dismissal, summary judgment, settlement, trial or other creative alternative.
