5.0 stars 15 totalReview Cathy Cook
Hiring a lawyer is a big decision. I wanted to find someone who would fight for my rights and someone who really knew the law. I found both of those qualities in Ms. Cook. She, and her firm, were very professional and responded to my questions/concerns very quickly and thoroughly. I would highly recommend Ms. Cook!!
My wife and I needed an attorney to deal with a difficult child support/child custody issue. I spoke with several friends and coworkers who highly recommended Cathy Cook. I am in law enforcement and decided to seek the professional recommendations of some of the defense attorneys and prosecutors I know. All gave Ms. Cook high praise and we met with her for a consultation and hired her immediately thereafter. Ms. Cook is one of the most professional attorneys I have ever dealt with. She was extremely thorough, explained everything in detail, and handled our case as if it were her own. She was always accessible, even on weekends and after hours and provided us with the outcome we were looking for. We could not be happier and I have recommended Ms. Cook to everyone I know that is in need of a highly qualified, professional attorney. Outstanding!
I asked a close friend of my family who works for the Hamilton County Court of Domestic Relations what are some names of good Attorneys that she would recommend. She only told me one name, Cathy Cook.
Cathy is my advocate and my friend. I am a dad only looking out for my children and their best and she is only interested in the same. She is not into playing legal games. Cathy tells me everything I need to hear, whether I'm right or wrong. I love her straight no nonsense answers that cut with precision to the heart of the matter. She doesn't dance around the issues but is rather upfront, direct, and honest and for that I consider her a trustworthy friend. She and her staff have always been compassionate and caring regarding my case. She has always been available to me when I have called in the past during off hours, nights, and on a holiday weekend.
I learned the hard way by initially hiring a non-trial Attorney for my high conflict divorce. This resulted in a need for modification. Cathy fought for my children to have more time with their dad by a motion to Modifying Parenting Time. As a result of her experience in the court room and knowledge of the law I received additional time that is precious to me and my children. I am ever thankful.
At the free, fifteen-minute initial telephone consult I did with Cathy, she gave me 30 minutes. I was very relieved and empowered after my call and felt much more in control, and had a good idea of my options. Because the free initial consult had gone over and because the information had been so useful, when I went with her I offered to pay her for it. She never took me up on my offer. I have sent her around a dozen questions by email, and over 90% of them were billed as ten minutes, which to me is a low-cost, efficient and extremely timely way to get legal counsel when I have small, important questions that don’t warrant a phone conversation or coming in. Most responses were within 48 hours. Once at a meeting, I asked about a point that had been discussed before, but which I hadn’t understood. Cathy began her response by saying, “We’ve discussed this before. I don’t want to take your money [by devoting redundant billable time to this].” I asked her to go over it again anyway for me, but her response illustrates a common theme with Cathy of being parsimonious with my money. The quality of the advice has been consistently high – to the point, with nothing more than what I need – on what seems to me a complicated family law situation. I hear horror stories of what friends have gone through with significantly higher priced lawyers who did not protect their interests, whereas working with Cathy I have been successful in protecting my interests at a very reasonable cost in both time and money. My sense of her is that she’s right there, on my side, just picking out the laws and legal custom that are relevant to my case, and avoiding anything that isn’t absolutely useful. It is so easy for a lawyer to throw in more than is necessary, or to take longer to get to the bottom line which increases fees perhaps making for a more contentious, difficult case and Cathy seems to me temperamentally opposed to that – she is temperamentally direct, honest and efficient.
Cathy is well experienced and knowledgeable in her field. I felt like she paid attention to my individual case. I strongly recommend Cathy and her staff.

Cathy I truly appreciate everything you and your staff did for me. You were all professional while being compassionate. During some of the worst days of my life you provided me with hope. Everyone that works for and with Cathy are amazing at what they do. Scott, Elizabeth and Lindsey demonstrated that they sincerely cared about my case, me and most importantly...my children. I would not even consider using another firm. I would recommend Cathy Cook to anyone.

Cathy represented me in my divorce. With the assistance of another attorney, she prepared all end of life directives for me. She also represented me in a dispute with a neighbor. She has referred me to other attorneys for matters she did not handle. I have been represented by several other attorneys during the course of my 69 year lifetime and, by comparison, I have always received superior representation from Cathy. I believe she has always worked for my best interests.

If you are going to the mat, Cathy is the go to person for me. Her billing is fair and I have never felt badly about paying her fee. I felt like she actually worked on my case and gave me the best that she had. I never felt like I went through this matter alone. If you have ever been there, having a REAL advocate to fight for you is big. She is up to date on the law and not afraid of anybody in the courtroom. I noticed the respect her peers gave her, and felt like she gave my case all that she had to help me through a devastatingly difficult time in my family's life. I wish my other contacts with legal professionals made me feel as good about paying my legal fees. No regrets whatsoever about hiring this lawyer. She made me feel like I was more than a paycheck and she helped me stay focused on what was best for my young daughter. I am grateful to her for her representation. Thanks Cathy.

I have had the opportunity to use Ms. Cook as legal representation in several court related matters. Ms. Cook's extensive knowledge and experience in domestic related situations exceeds many of her peers in the industry. She is highly recommend.

Cathy has represented me a number of times over the past 11 years and has always been extremely knowledgeable, forthcoming and informative. I can always count on her for excellent representation.
