About Kathleen L. Bodmer
Kathleen grew up in Massachusetts and began her law practice there, back in 1994. She actually chose her career path in sixth grade, when researching and writing a career report, and went on to major in clinical psychology, obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree from Tufts University. Kathleen felt that a clinical psychology degree would aid her in the practice of law, by giving her a background in understanding people, which can be very advantageous when brokering transactions, and discussing very personal matters with clients. After graduation, she attended Boston University School of Law, where she earned her Juris Doctor degree in 1994.
In her early years of practice, Kathleen handled estate planning, estate litigation, and divorce matters, which gave her insight into the problems that can lead to litigation, when documents are not well drafted or when there is animosity among family members. In 2000, Kathleen moved to the West Coast and started her California practice with a local firm. After almost four years with that firm, she left and opened her own law practice, focusing on business transactions and estate planning, along with trust administration. As a sole practitioner, she is able to devote the time and energy to assist every client, striving to promote peace of mind and honor the human face of law.
Kathleen is a member of the Santa Cruz County Estate Planning Council and serves on the boards of directors for Bay Federal Credit Union and the Capitola chapter of LeTip International.
In Kathleen’s free time, she enjoys spending quality time with her husband and two children. She loves hiking and the outdoors, and is a devoted “soccer mom” to both her son and daughter. She also has a four-legged family member — a rescued black labrador named Jetta.
