About me

Attorney Catherine West Olivetti is a natural leader. 

Her name may be on the front door, but there's a good chance you'll be greeted by her enthusiasm on the other side. 

Call her an optimist, call her a realist.

She's both. 

Cathy has a strong desire to guide families and individuals through the most important stages of their lives, offering incredibly honest, compassionate and productive counsel. 

Our team wouldn't be complete with a coach.

Cathy's also our cheerleader. 

Originally from Wilmington, Delaware, she earned her undergraduate degree from Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York.  Inspired by one of her lifelong friends (who had always been her cheerleader), she attended the University of South Carolina School of Law, earning her Juris Doctor in 1989. 

Cathy is a 1993 graduate of Leadership Hilton Head, frequent public speaker, and an ongoing sponsor of the University of South Carolina School of Law. 

She's married with two sons in college, an avid craft artist, and was spotlighted on HGTV's television show "That's Clever". 

For as friendly and outgoing as she is, you might wonder if Cathy has an off button. 

As it  turns out, she's happy to sit back and relax with her family at home most nights.

...don't tell her we told you!


Expect to hear the truth from Cathy.

...because it doesn't hurt to hear it from someone who cares.
