Katharine Maddox is an excellent attorney. She carefully weighs all pros and cons and gives you the best advice for your CHILD not necessarily what you want to hear. This was very important to me because I felt well prepared for all negotiations, depositions and court appearances. It is also very easy to get caught up in the arguing and fighting of a child custody and child support case and she never took the focus off my daughter. You can never be 100% sure how a judge will rule but she gave me realistic options of what to expect. Many other attorneys I met with simply told me what I wanted to hear NOT what I needed to hear. I retained Ms. Maddox over three years ago and it was the best decision I ever made. Litigation is very stressful and hard and she really carried a lot of that burden so that I could focus on my family. Ms. Maddox is extremely thorough with a meticulous attention to detail that definitely made a huge and apparent difference in court. She was on top of each detail and knew my case forward and back even though I was far from her only client. Ms. Maddox never made me feel rushed or ignored. All calls and email were returned or replied to in a timely fashion and she answered each question in detail. I do not think I could have gotten through the last 3 years of litigation without her as my attorney. No matter how flustered or frustrated I got with the situation she always listened and gave me sound advice. I truly trust her opinion (so much so that now when things come up I don't even question what the right call is - she always has had my best interest and the best interest of my daughter in mind). Even if I do not question her she always explains the situation thoroughly and double checks before sending anything out on my behalf. I cannot say enough positive things about her. I have always felt well taken care of and I cannot stress enough what having an amazing lawyer does for you in the long run of going through litigation.
