A Respected Name Since The 1970s

Our founding partner, Michael Flicker, practiced family law on the peninsula for over 50 years. In 1990, Mr. Flicker partnered with Anthony Kerin, III to form Flicker & Kerin LLP in Palo Alto. Together, Mr. Flicker and Mr. Kerin brought on two more partners, Rolf Kruger and Michèle Bissada. The firm became Flicker, Kerin, Kruger & Bissada, LLP, and has grown over the years. The firm, often referred to as FKKB, now managed by Rolf Kruger, Michèle Bissada, Marisa San Filippo, David Erb and Alice Shaw, supports clients from its Peninsula office in Menlo Park, CA and East Bay office in San Ramon, CA. For more than 50 years, the experienced attorneys of Flicker, Kerin, Kruger & Bissada LLP have handled complex matters in San Mateo, Santa Clara and the surrounding counties. Additionally, the dedicated attorneys at our East Bay office can serve clients in Contra Costa and Alameda counties, as well as the great Bay Area.
