Kathy is an absolutely amazing lawyer. There are not enough words in the English language to describe how wonderful she is. She is so dedicated and her work ethic is unparalleled . She truly cares about her clients and their needs. I was involved in a child custody case and Kathy's expertise and experience kept my children safe. I could not be more grateful. I would very highly recommend Kathy as an attorney.

I cannot say enough to express how grateful I am that I had Kathy represent me in my divorce case. She is extremely good at what she does and also listened to me and was sympathetic to my feelings. She was responsive, prepared, and has integrity. Her assistant Annie is great too.

Kathy is a professional. She listens carefully to your concerns and uses the information provided to build a winning case. She helped me win a case against my ex-husband who was sueing me for custody of our son. Her rates are fair and she uses only the funds she needs to work the case. She will not promise the outcome, but will do her best to present a winning case and leave the rest to the judge.

I came to Kathy with a very complex case in which I suspected medical abuse by the mother of the children. She understood exactly what I was talking about and guided me through the process. She obtained experts and personally read through all of the medical records. From the start she had a better understanding of what was going on personally with my children. She explained the need to get a social study done with a court appointed psychologist. She took the time to explain to me why things had to be done a certain way and was very thorough. She did a great job on educating me about the process.
My kids are safe now. We are working to insure their safety through adulthood. I could not have done it with out her. She knows the law and dedicates the time to do things right.

Kathy is amazing! She knows how to take the bull by the horns and get down to business. She is extremely hard working and educated. She was acting as a defense attorney for me and immediately went to work researching and pulling my case together for trial. Her results and documented facts were direct and to the point according to the law. I feel very secure in having her represent me on any level.

I have only had an experience with an attorney once before, but Wow!..what a difference Kathy makes to her clients.
From the first meeting to the very end, Kathy was sincerely caring and understanding to my situation, really listened to all of my concerns, and provided straight-forward feedback. In the courthouse, she was quick in an unexpected moment to create a better outcome than I had anticipated and made sure everything was rock solid and loop holes were closed before we left. She is extremely intelligent, professional, responsive, and went above and beyond to make sure needs were met. She provides excellent counsel to the very end, with an agressive approach to achieve her client's needs and accomplishes this with efficiency and integrity.
I highly recommend Kathy Erickson to anyone who is in need of cousel. I can't express how highly I think of her and wouldn't hesitate to call her again should my need arise in the future.

Kathy took the time to learn everything about my case and ensure we were properly prepared for every possible scenario we might face in court. She helped me track down an attorney from whom I needed extensive documentation and she worked through the night to thoroughly review that documentation even though we received it only two days before our court date.
I needed an expert witness (very expensive) and Kathy was able to estimate the time frame down to within an hour so as to save me money on the expert's hourly rate.
Kathy truly listened (actually a difficult trait to find in an attorney) was patient, understanding and explained her answers in layman's terms. She had the foresight after our proceedings to notify the bailiff of possible trouble from the birth father and kept us out of sight until he left.

Kathy is extremely intelligent and intuitive. She has the ability to quickly get to the heart of her clients' issues and map out a plan of representation. Her passion for her profession is very apparent from the moment you meet her. She is objective and well-respected among her peers, and certainly a worth adversary. Her integrity is exemplary. All essential qualities you need when undertaking any type of legal matter.

I had a complex emergency case which involved another state. Kathy was at the top of her game and made sure that my children where her first priority. Kathy is well versed with cross jurisdiction cases. She was professional and quick to get the job done. She was aggressive but had integrity. I would recommend anyone to her.

Not often do you find a father receiving custody or being named the primary conservator of his children. Kathy was a great force in making this happen for me, and for this I will be forever grateful for her direction, knowledge, and leadership.
From the initial hearing, through the final settlement phase, she was well prepared and ready to provide me with the direction and help I needed to obtain the final results in my case.
I would recommend Kathy to anyone looking for an attorney who is willing to make a valiant effort, and is willing to make your case seem to be the most important case being handled at the time.

I sought Ms. Erickson's assistance with my divorce, which included removing my ex-spouse from my home. She was very thorough, attentive and understanding. Despite a very hostile and nasty ex-spouse, Ms. Erickson was able to provide comfort and keep things moving quickly. I recommend her services without reservation.

We hired Kathy Erickson in 2008 to handle a tenuous situation with an overbearing ex. We interviewed several lawyers and had almost hired one before meeting with Kathy. We believe someone was looking out for us that day, because Kathy took our case and handled it EFFECTIVELY. She is experienced, purpose-driven, communicative, the list goes on. She knows her business and makes it her business to know YOUR unique case. Bottom line, she is seasoned, and when my FAMILY is on the line, and I definitely want Kathy Erickson on MY team. Thank you, Kathy!!
