    • I recommend Kathryn Mcdonough.
    • I hired Kathryn more than 3 years ago.
    • Kathryn handled my General Practice matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I hired Ms. McDonough on two separate occasions and both items were taken care of in a timely and accurate fashion. I have recommended her to many other people to handle their various items as I know she and her support staff do a great job handling legal matters.

  2. Kate is great but her support staff is incompetent

    • I do not recommend Kathryn Mcdonough.
    • I hired Kathryn 1-3 years ago.
    • Kathryn handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    My spouse and I used Kate McDonough for an amicable divorce. Kate is so nice, professional and competent. However, the people who do most of the leg work in her practice are beyond incompetent. Forms filled out to ensure that my wife continues to receive insurance had her name mispelled, her address wrong and her sex listed at male. They also screwed up several other forms causing my former spouse to have to wait much longer than necessary to receive her part of our financial arrangement. In short, Kate McDonough seems like a fantastic attorney. However, her staff is beyond incompetent (particularly Lourdes), which caused us a lot of extra stress and made the process take far longer than necessary. Avoid at all costs until she hires better people to help run the practice.

    • I recommend Kathryn Mcdonough.
    • I hired Kathryn 1-3 years ago.
    • Kathryn handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Kathryn Mcdonough provided excellent service and had a very fast response time to my family law case related inquiry. Within a very short period of time, she had returned child support estimates based on Maryland support guidelines. She also provided solid, trustworthy legal advice, as my material circumstances had changed and needed to know how that might affect my previously awarded child-support court order. I would recommend her services to anyone.
