    • I recommend Kathryn Hudson.

    Kathryn is a superb attorney. Her knowledge and comprehension of the legal system is astounding. Kathie exudes a distinct feeling of confidence and capability with all legal matters, which has set my mind at ease. Her representation of me has been excellent. She has and will continue to be my attorney of choice. Kathie has genuine compassion and concern for her clients. After our initial consult, she provided me with a phone number that allowed me to contact her at all times. Kathie kept me up-to-date on the status of the case and anticipated and was prepared for any twists or snags that my court cases might encounter. She has always been honest and upfront with me about all situations pertaining to my case. Kathie is also blessed with a remarkable motivational and inspiring personality, which has been immensely soothing and comforting in my troubled times. I highly recommend Kathryn Hudson as an attorney.

    • I do not recommend Kathryn Hudson.

    I hired Kathryn on two separate occasions in response to my ex husbands request to modify our custody agreement. The first time, she was outstanding. She was flexible on payments, she was direct and knowledge and made me feel at ease that I could trust her. The second time however was a different story. It took me numerous calls to get a hold of her to even review the modification I was served with. Once I got a hold of her, things seemed to look like they would work out fine. I was in the process of moving (my husband is military) and she ended up going to court on my behalf because she was unable to get the court date changed and I wasn't able to be present at that time. I began to call her to check the status on what she had drafted up about a month out from the date. She would either not return my calls or when she did, she said she didn't have any new information on moving the date. I finally heard from her the night before the scheduled hearing around 11 pm and she went over her draft of what her and my ex husband's attorney had come to an agreement on. Everything seemed fine and the next morning she called right before the hearing with more demands from my ex. I was pretty much told to agree with what he wanted or I was going to make things more difficult. I was told that the judge at the time wasn't the nicest and if we couldn't agree he was the kind of judge to make his own call on matters. So I trusted her and let her continue with her advice. After the new modification was read into the record, she called me and said all was good and after the holidays she am would send me copies of everything. The holidays past and nothing. Finally after numerous calls, I get th copies of the new modification from her. I had noticed that there were things snuck in the record that were never reviewed by me and never agreed to. When I tried to call and email her about it, she never responded back to me. Now, I'm dealt with a huge headache and having to find another attorney to help me sort out this mess. I'll admit that I was supposed to pay Kathryn one final payment and I never sent it. I didn't feel like she did her job and represented me properly. If advise anyone who uses her to make sure you are present in court when she's there. I didn't feel she represented me properly and I think this was due to her not having her things in order early. I felt like o was rushed and pushed to the side as if she didn't have time to deal with me.

      Lawyer Comment:

      The danger with the Internet is that it can be used to unfairly smear a person's reputation. No in my office can identify this scenario. Agreements between parties are approved and signed before being filed with the court. Perhaps if this person would have signed their name we could address her issues as we do whenever anyone has a complaint or doesn't feel things are as they want.

  3. Divorce / Child custody

    • I do not recommend Kathryn Hudson.

    I was in an abusive marriage with two young children who had also became victims of my husband when I finally found an out and could leave him. I had a consult with Kathryn Hudson. She sounded wonderful. She said all the encouraging words and even had counseling set up for me and my children. Kathryn kept in contact with me and was a great motivational cheerleader to keep me going. I had a payment plan making payments because of my situation. Upon making my final payment Kathryn's personality changed. I was no longer being informed of the progress of my case. I would often call her office 3-4 times before hearing back from her. Time sensitive paperwork was not sent to my husband's attorney which caused me to be in contempt of court. Kathryn left for vacation and called me to tell me to take the paperwork to his attorney! She refused to summond netural witnesses who witnessed me being attacked by my husband. Didn't get vital police reports that pertained to my abuse. When we finally went to court Kathryn was so unprepared she kept losing her thoughts in mid sentence, fumbling her words, stopping mid sentence to walk back and review her notes. She very early in the hearing dismissed my key witnesses who could verify the mental and physical abuse that I had to endure. I was so upset because my husband had witnesses who I had never met in out 9 years together who got on the stand and claimed I didn't take care of my children and Kathryn never questioned his witness as to if they even knew me. My abusive husband received joint custody of our children he gets them every other week, does not have to pay child support and there is on primary custodian for my children. If my ex wants to yank them out of school and put them in a totally diffetent school district I have no say about it. If our sn if failing in class and needs tutoring he doesnt have to take him if he doesnt want to. My children are forced to be in the middle of this continuous battle. Kathryn didn't have the decency to call me. She text me telling me to appeal and with a new lawyer. I hired another attorney but thanks to Kathryn who signed the divorce paperwork before even notifying me I am not even able to appeal the judges ruling. How is life now for my children? My son preformed in a Christmas play this past December and his father had him that week. When I arrived at the program my youngest son had on short sleeves and no socks while his brother preformed in shorts and a short sleeved shirt in December with 30 degree weather while their dad had on jeans and a sweat shirt. It broke my heart to see them walk out without coats and I cried when my kids told me they went to school this way. Thanks Kathryn you have hurt me and my children far more than I can ever express. I only pray that those seeking help as I did will find another lawyer and not use you.

      Lawyer Comment:

      Unfortunately attorneys cannot guarantee outcomes nor should they, and sometimes what we are told is not always factually the ways things are which makes it very difficult for the attorney. Joint custody is now the preferred option after the legislature changed the statute and it is entirely up to the judge, not the attorney, whether joint custody is ordered. When parties cannot agree the court orders the terms of a divorce and the signature of the attorney only approves the form of the order as was the case here. Clients are told they have 30 days to file a notice of appeal on a final order or decree and that was done here. This client timely filed the notice with another attorney, however, it appears not to have been followed through. Our retainer agreement states that it does not cover an appeal, which is very expensive and is a specialty in itself. All child custody and visitation orders can be modified if one of the parties is not abiding by the order or engages in conduct that is harmful to the child(ren). It is very disheartening to have someone nearly a year later feel they need to say such untruths.

    • Kathryn handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Kathie has been my attorney dealing with an out-of-state custody battle. Not only has she been in constant communication with me on EVERY issue pertaining to the case, but she was the first lawyer I've ever worked with to take an initial consultation on the day (and at the time) that I originally called to inquire, the first to provide me with a phone number to contact/text her at any time, and the first to REALLY care about my case. Her depth and breadth of knowledge on family court matters is amazing. Her ability to understand a case and strategically move forward is unmatched by any other family lawyer I've worked with. Hands down, she's the best. I now have custody of my children and it would not have been possible were it not for the level of care and follow through she delivered on this case.

    My childs mother was constantly harassing me. Being jealous of my wife she made bribes with more time with our child if i stayed at my parents (away from my wife and other 2 kids) when it began to be more hostile i hired Ms Hudson to represent me. She was very efficient. everything was handled fast and now i wish i would have called her sooner! i definitely recomend her to anyone!

    My company was trying to cheat me out of a retirement. I had tried several times in person and by correspondence to clear this up and was just being ignored. I contacted Ms Hudson and she got their attention very quickly but not heavyhandedly. To make a long story short, I did receive my retirement without a lot of resistance thanks to Ms Hudson !
