She is a no nonsense, experienced divorce lawyer I appreciated and would highly recommend.
After years of unsuccessfully trying to resolve marital differences on our own, I selected Kate Vetrano to help me initiate and navigate thru an 'Amicable Divorce' involving several million dollars in assets, so my ex and I could better enjoy my few remaining years.
She did exactly that. I received to-the-point pre-declaration advice, detailed post declaration 'to do's' and 'don't do's'. We/she negotiated a settlement that my now ex and I are both as comfortable with as can be. My 'ex' and I are still friends.
Kate certainly helped me start a new chapter in my life, and all was accomplished within 6 months.
Again, I appreciated her no nonsense, to-the-point approach, her belief in amicable divorces, and her ability to deliver.
Kate is one of the most professional and trustworthy people i have met. She made a world of difference to my case and accomplished what my last attorney. My advise to everybody is to stop wasting moneyon your current lawyer and call her right now you will be happy you did.
My first meeting with Kate Vetrano was a big turning point in my life. She calmly assured me, as I panicked, that I would not lose my children, that I could protect my children and myself, and that I had rights to financial support. She informed me that I was not alone - at a time when I felt completely alone. She helped me strategize so that I had a smart, safe plan to file for divorce against a very controlling husband. Once I filed, she knew exactly what to do in response to my husband's antics - and we quickly finalized a custody agreement and began the process for establishing support. She consistently and effectively acted in my best interest. She always took into consideration my wishes, and was fantastic with communicating with me to make sure we were on the same page. She and her office staff were all top-notch professionals, and she was right - I never felt alone.
Although this was not an amicable situation, I was very pleased at how Kate handled everything, and in the end we did not go to court. Amazingly, we came to a settlement after about a year - and thanks to Kate I am now adjusting to my "new normal", and moving forward with a happy, healthy life for myself and my kids. I highly recommend Kate Vetrano!
Kate presented it for me as a second opinion for a formidable case with confidence, concentration, focus, efficiency, and conscientiousness, above all, with such a best humanity in the globe. I regret that I had already committed to another good attorney at the time when I met with her.
Dear Mrs. Vetrano.
When I walked into your office today I felt helpless as I have been worrying about this since I first received the notice. Fifteen minutes with you and then spending time with your colleague gave me hope. I felt I had been the "good guy" all these years but was being punished for things I hadn't done and couldn't see any light but your thoughtful and professional manner changed that. I want to thank you for your grace and look forward to working with you through this trying time.
Thank you again.
The moment I met Kate, I felt confident in her ability to see me safely through my divorce. She was professional, yet always kind and encouraging. I was able to simply stand back and let her take care of the confusing details in a divorce. I knew that she always had my best interest at heart.
My advice to anyone going through a divorce... keep your focus on the kids and don't jump into another relationship, but rather take some time on your own. It's wonderful to discover yourself again!
I would recommend Kate without reservation or hesitation. She is an excellent lawyer who is both caring and supportive lawyer. Kate was recommended to me by a friend and I was very impressed. She conducts herself and her law firm with professionalism and a caring attitude. I approached Kate to represent me in my divorce. During the process she identified that divorce may not be the only course for my spouse and I. She drafted an excellent letter to my spouse indicating that divorce was not the only option for us to consider. She highlighted that marriage is a difficult and sometimes very hard relationship to maintain, but with the right approach and an appropriate counsellor that marriages can be saved and repaired. The letter was sent a few months ago and my spouse and I have since found a marriage counselor we can work with. Without Kate's insight and suggestion we would have progressed to a divorce and most likely be living separate lives. Today we are working on our marriage and both fully committed to its success. Thanks in part to Kate. I recommend Kate and her law firm highly.
Kate Vetrano provided me both the professional and personal guidance to make my divorce as smooth and painless as possible. I was able to achieve an aimicable divorce that allows me to maintain my relationship with my college age children and my ex-wife. I enthusiastically recommend Kate as an attorney, counselor, and friend in these matters. It's unique to find an attorney that will be all three for you.
I met with Kate for a consultation meeting on my divorce. Before the meeting, I was very pessimistic and thought it was the end of the world, at least for me! After Kate thoughtfully, from every aspect of PA Family Law, analyzed my situation and provided me with her expert advice, I am confident that I will be able to get through this “dark nightmare”. It is Kate who has saved my life, literally! Kate is a highly qualified law professional not only with 30 years experience, but also compassionate and approachable. I trust Kate and look forward to working with her down the road.
I can't say enough about Kate Vetrano. Her advice was invaluable in every aspect of my divorce. She consistently gave good advice on how to handle interactions with the other party that enabled us to execute an agreement on custody, property and support that put my children's interest forefront. Kate and her team were always available to answer any of my questions and alleviate all of my concerns. Going through divorce is devastating but I never felt alone with Kate on my side. My divorce was handled in an expeditious manner (90 days) which allowed me to move on with my life and begin the healing process!
