Born and raised in California, Kiyah went to a junior college before heading off to live and study law in Scotland. After completing her degree there and returning to the United States, she obtained a further law degree and successfully completed the bar exam in 2019.

Kiyah is really attentive to detail and will return your calls like her job depends on it! She is very talented at helping small business owners navigate the complexities of closely held business law. Her compassionate approach to clients combines well with her no nonsense attitude towards the practice of law. She recently began volunteering her time to help the ACLU set up a branch in her hometown of Modesto, CA.
