Kelley Anderson-Atkins was born and raised in Fair Oaks, California. She attended Del Campo High School, where she played basketball and sang in the choir.
Ms. Anderson-Atkins inherited her love of the law from her late father, who passed away when she was just eleven years old. With the support and encouragement of her mother, she decided to pursue her paralegal certification with MTI College after graduating from high school. On her first day of college, Ms. Anderson-Atkins happened to meet her spouse, who was also studying in the legal field.
Ms. Anderson-Atkins graduated from MTI College in 2006 at the top of her class, on the Honor Roll and Dean's List, obtaining her Legal Secretary Certification and Associate's Degree in Paralegal Studies. Her past professional experience includes paralegal work with an established local family law, estate planning and probate firm, and a position as a Legal Process Clerk in the Civil, Family Law and Domestic Violence Division at the Santa Cruz County Courthouse. Ms. Anderson-Atkins eventually returned to the Sacramento area to be closer to family.
Ms. Anderson-Atkins joined the Arnold Law Firm in 2018 as a Civil Litigation Legal Assistant for attorneys John Stralen and Raymond Tuason. She thoroughly enjoys the fast-paced days, problem solving and bringing justice for our clients. She offers unparalleled understanding and compassion, which makes her a great asset to our team.
When she isn't working, Ms. Anderson-Atkins enjoys reading a good book, being a fun step-mom, and having game nights and barbeques with her family.
