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.
I have been working with Cathy R. Cook for almost 4 years now. When I started the divorce process in 2007, I initially did not have Cathy, and I wish I had. She is knowledgeable in domestic law, excellent in the court room, and will not back down when it comes to protecting her clients rights. I was recommended to Cathy by a past client, and now I recommend her to other people in need of legal assistance.
I have continually worked with Cathy for over 11 years on divorce and child custody issues. She is very knowledgeable and gets the job done. She has always been upfront with me and explains what I can except, good or bad, so that I am prepared. She truly cares about the well being of her clients and their children. Though it is never a good situation to fighting custody issues, Cathy always make me feel more comfortable and at ease.
Cathy helped bring my case onto an even playing field with the opposing attorney. I had used an attorney I thought would be helpful but because of my lifestyle and my situation in the divorce he would no longer appropriately represent me. When I found Cathy I felt a sense of relief. We were not able to get everything that was in the best interest for me and my children, but Cathy brought this case a long way from where it was in the beginning.
I hired a lawyer for my divorce, after two weeks, the lawyer informed that I am going to need a different lawyer because this was going to be a nasty and crazy divorced and that my wife and her attourney will do anything and everything no matter the cost. She was right.
She recommended Cathy Cook. Cathy was on vacation when I called to hire her. I needed help immediately becasue the first of many false accusations came. Cathy immediately started working on my case.
It took three years to get my divorced finalized. I am happy to say that Cathy did not stoop to the level that my wife and her attorney did. If she did it would have only added to the length and the cost of the divorce. Her goal was to get a settlement that was fair for both parties and minimize the negative impact on a post divorce relationship between the children, my ex, and I.
Unfortunately we had to go to court frequently to have the Magistrate and/or Judge rule on proposed settlements, as they would not negotiate any anything, or rule on many of the false accusations that my wife and her attourney claimed.
I did want revenge and sometimes I wanted Cathy to play the games that my wife was. She would not and did say that the revenge would come with the final settlement. Cathy was right. With all of the crazines, Cathy was also able to get almost one third ($12,000.00) of my legal billed reimbursed by my now ex wife.
Cathy helped maintain my sanity during a very difficult time of my life. By the time this was over we became friends. I highly recommend Cathy.
Superior Attorney - Highly Recomend! Cathy and her staff is fair, trustworthy, extremely knowledgeable, and kept me informed of the steps and process.
I was glad she was my attorney and not the opposing counsel.
