"Kiko is fantastic. Our participants (junior associates to senior partners) loved her program. Kiko makes a potentially dry topic exciting and engaging. She is wonderful to work with, extremely knowledgeable and a great teacher. I highly recommend Kiko's services. She's the best in the business."

Steve Gluckman, Senior Director of Professional
and Organizational Development
Manatt, Phelps & Phillips

"We rolled out Kiko's Writing that Works program to hundreds of U.S. attorneys throughout our major offices and had tremendous feedback and successes. Associates and partners, regardless of practice area, were engaged and responsive to Kiko's energy and knowledge -- there was never a dull 'lecture' moment. After rave reviews, we also hired Kiko for our Summer Program and will continue to use Kiko's services in the future."

Colin Beazley, Manager of Professional Development
McDermott Will & Emery

"In the ten years I have worked in this office, I have rarely seen such an effective training session on legal writing.

You are a terrific speaker and a wonderful legal-writing teacher."

"Kiko has presented her workshops to our summer and junior associates in several Orrick offices. Her programs are outstanding--she's an engaging speaker, her written materials are superb, and our associates consistently give her rave reviews. We're excited to have her back."

Bill Oxley, Los Angeles Hiring Partner

"Kiko is great! Her writing tips are clear, concise, and effective. Her presentation is not only informative, but stimulating and fun, too. Kiko is a wonderful teacher and I recommend this workshop to anyone who is looking to improve their prose."

Kourtney Burdick, Deputy General Counsel
League of California Cities

"In the feedback that we received from associates this spring, they consistently praised your clinics. They appreciated your specific tips about how to organize their briefs, eliminate excess words, and more clearly and persuasively state their arguments. Several associates particularly appreciated all the time you spent with them. In the press to meet litigation deadlines, attorneys often do not have time to step back and evaluate whether they are following fundamental legal writing techniques. Your clinics provide that opportunity. Your friendly, non-threatening teaching style makes it easy for associates to understand what they need to improve. Your clear instructions give associates tools that they can apply to their next writing assignments."

Anthony Grumbach, Director of Professional Development
Farella Braun + Martel

San Francisco City Attorney's Office
