  • Karrah Griffin Leary

    I know Kathryn through local community activities and have had the privilege of working as her opposing counsel on an Order of Protection matter. She is ethical, truly passionate about legal practice, and dedicated to protecting the interests of her clients. Kathryn is compassionate and understanding in her approach to the issues facing victims of domestic violence. She is extremely committed to improving the legal position of those in financial need and has worked tirelessly promoting access to justice. I consider her a role model, and I highly endorse her abilities.
