    Hired Attorney

    I hired Katherine to represent me in my dependency case to attain my child. As the case goes forward she seem to be very proactive an caring set meetings in her small office showed up to court, ect. After about a month into the case I started to notice laziness and negligence for the case it took 3 weeks to receive court documents, I came in looking for legal advise and help because these are things a person has no idea about! You just want HELP TO GET YOUR CHILD BACK.She decided to resign and withdraw from the case due to indifference's and my lack of informing her about my case and things going on! (ISN'T THAT AN ATTORNEYS JOB) to be in communication to follow up to see how things are going ect but according to Katherine its not, its MY JOB AND she never picked up her phone! All I could sit and wonder is what did she do all day? Where was my money invested into? SO to conclude this review as a frustrated single mother I only worked with Katherine for about 4 months and I was only happy the first month and could not receive any funds back.The case still goes on and I was forced to find another attorney. The best part was when she resigned she didn't even use my correct name and filed it to the courts. That should tell you all about the laziness and lack of knowledge in her job to do everything precisely and correct. DON'T DO IT. YOUR FAMILY DEPENDS ON THIS!! THERE ARE A MILLION OTHER LAWYERS WHO WILL ACTUALLY CARE AND DO THEIR JOB NOT ARGUE WITH CLIENTS AN IGNORE PHONE CALLS.

    Katherine Lee Corrigan’s response: “This is a very sad case. This child was removed from his Mother's care for abuse. The department took custody of the child and placed the child with a relative. This was an excellent placement for this child. This was a client who was more concerned with her personal life and her appearance than the welfare of her child. This client came to me after she fired her first attorney.(always red flag #1: I happened to know the previous attorney who is a very good attorney by all accounts) This client violated a court order, which resulted in her child being injured again and being remove from the placement with the relative. She was almost arrested but for my representation and that of a criminal attorney friend of mine. She failed to follow through with her case plan, showed up late for court EVERY TIME. The last time she showed up late for court the hearing had just ended!!!! It is and has always been the CLIENT'S job to follow through with their case plan and inform the attorney. Not for the attorney to chase them down. She failed to inform me of critical things that had occurred between her and the caseworker. She complained about everything incessantly, but failed to take any responsibility for her behavior. Unfortunately, that child is still in DCF custody, because the mother's priorities are her personal life and not that of her child. The motion that this client alleges was filed with the incorrect name in the courts is untrue, that motion was not filed with the incorrect name. Lastly, it is ironic that this client is complaining about her representation in AVVO; after I told her I was withdrawing, she begged me no to withdraw. I wish her and her child the best. this is too sad.”
  • Kate is great!

    Kate entered my life as a "friend of the court". that is to say that she came into the courtroom as an informal observant and when it became clear that the judge (then under judicial review scrutiny, as an FYI) was not very keen on pro se litigants, I undertook to hire Kate on the spot. She turned out to be not just an attorney, but a trustworthy and loyal friend. Her integrity and care went far above the norm; she became a friend; a tireless fighter for myself and my children. If you are looking for an attorney who cares, look no further than Kate Corrigan.
