Kathy is in my opinion the best ever. She is easy to talk to, provides prompt responses, never rushes you and truly cares. You will never find a lawyer with her attributes. So far she has handled the case excellently. I intend to keep a retainer and have her as my representation for life. Do yourself a favor and call her firm. You won't be sorry.
A Great Lawyer

Kathy handled my divorce and a difficult custody situation. She was always available when I needed her. Lawyers are expensive, but Kathy's rates are reasonable. She even showed me how to save money throughout my case. She is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Her advice was right on the money! I would recommend her to anyone who is getting divorced or has a custody dispute.
