About The Firm

Home / About The Firm
Angelo, Kilday & Kilduff Attorneys at Law was formed in 1997 by Laurence L. Angelo, Bruce A. Kilday and Carolee G. Kilduff. The founding partners of AKK have practiced together for more than 25 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 passionate clothes-shopper) agreed to refrain from utilizing the firm credit card for her retail excursions. The penalty was to be lunch at the partner’s expense.
Today, our dynamic team of attorneys and staff includes the following:

Bruce A. Kilday – Team Lead, Law Enforcement And Police Representation, Constitutional Litigation
Carolee G. Kilduff – Team Lead, Employment, Constitutional Litigation
John A. Whitesides – Team Lead, Writ And Appellate Practice, Constitutional Litigation
Serena M. Warner – Team Lead, Employment, Constitutional Litigation
Kevin J. Dehoff – Team Lead, Dangerous Conditions And General Tort, Constitutional Litigation
Derick E. Konz – Team Lead, Law Enforcement And Police Representation, Constitutional Litigation
Kathryn A. Hulse – Constitutional Litigation
Jacob J. Graham – Constitutional Litigation
William J. Bittner – Constitutional Litigation
We also acknowledge the contributions of one of our founding attorneys, Laurence L. “Larry” Angelo, in memoriam.

Our Primary Areas Of Focus

Our attorneys defend public entities and private businesses in all types of tort cases, including accident cases. They are also deeply knowledgeable in complex civil rights, police liability and employment cases, including sexual harassment, equal protection, wrongful termination, and discrimination claims.
Each attorney at our firm is part of a “team” assigned to take the lead in the investigation and representation of cases in our primary areas of practice. We believe that this approach yields benefits in terms of focus and collaboration.
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.

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.
