My ex-husband filed in TX and I was in NJ. Besides the geography issue, there was also a military component to it. Catherine handled it all superbly. She is a force to be reckoned with; precise and intelligent, she has vision and drives the process forward. I have never met Catherine face to face, but during the entire process she kept me extremely well informed. She would always get back to me timely if I had questions, and she always presented me with very sound options and counsel. I always felt very solidly represented in absentia. In addition to that, she made me feel very protected, and that she had my back. When you're vulnerable and hurting as you're going through your divorce, that quality in an advisor is priceless. I interviewed many attorneys in Fort Worth, and was on my way to retaining someone else I wasn't terribly confident with, before I stumbled upon AVVO and found Catherine. When I read her reviews I was determined it had to be her. She truly was a Godsend. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She gets results and she cares about her clients. She is THE BEST!

There are the typical lawyers who you hire and never
Speak too. You speak to their paralegal who does most of the work
In your case. This is NOT Catherine Borum. Catherine
Goes above and beyond and actually CARES about her clients.
I had a very messy legal process and she was there for me every step of
The way. She would even call me just to see if I was okay. What douchbag lawyer
Does that? None.... She is knowledgeable of the laws
And goes through every angle and strategy with you. She will
Identify your risks and potential disadvantages also. She is tough
Agressive and caring at the sale time. There aren't enough words to express
The type of person and lawyer she is. Catherine Borum is by far the best
Lawyer in DFW area!!!!

Wow!! Where do I begin? I was totally blessed when I met Catherine! I hired her approximately a year and a half ago when I was served with a custody modification. Cat's determination and knowledge of the law are amazing! Her professionalism is above reproach. As others have stated in their reviews, Cat will tell you how it is, and her attention to my case and needs were nothing short of spectacular!! Although my case was a long, drawn out battle which involved child support, visitation, and residency outside of Tarrant County and contiguous, WE have prevailed! I am now the proud, custodial parent of my two beautiful daughters! I HIGHLY recommend Catherine and the Borum Law Firm for any of your family law needs! I'm only left to wonder how much time, money, and emotional stress I would have saved myself and children if I would have hired her from the beginning. One thing is for sure, I will always turn to Catherine for any family law issues in the future! Definitely a friend for life!!!

Catherine was the most understanding attorney and was sensitive to my needs. She got my case pushed through the courts and achieved my timeline! Even went out of her way to get me what I needed and when I needed it.

Catherine is a rare find in the world of family law. She has an incredible ability to communicate the good and bad news in an efficient and direct way....but she is also one of the most compassionate people you could hope for. That is soooo amazing to have when you are during such a stressful transition. And, she also will fight like heck for what is best for your child!

Catherine is a hard working attorney who fights for her clients. I recommend her services to anyone who needs an attorney who is willing to do whatever it takes, no matter how tedious or complicated, to represent her client well.

I recommend Catherine to anyone who needs a family law attorney. She is not only fluent in the law -- she will protect you. She told me the truth, even when it was hard for me to hear, and because if that I was able to make better decisions. I could always get in touch with her -- and I felt like she had my back until the final order was signed.

This won't be an incredibly long review because I have nothing but positive feedback for Catherine. I started a separation/divorce in 2006/7. Catherine was fantastic. Great communication, responded to my needs, used a very calm common sense approach to all the issues but was very aggressive when appropriate and necessary. This case was a little complex and included issues such as military retirement, QDRO's, child custody, spousal support, child support, dealt with issues across state borders, etc. Again, her knowledge about the varying issues was great and if she didn't have all the answers to all my questions, she did the research and got the answer. I have complete trust in Catherine and would use her as my attorney again. Hopefully not necessary, but I would :). Results of my case were better than I could have possibly imagined.

I have and continue to recommend Catherine to all who I know need her services. Catherine was always there for me and mediated fair and reasonable terms of my divorce and child custody. She continues to provide me with great advice.

Finding an attorney is a dime a dozen, but finding the right attorney is challenging. Ms. Borum continually kept us in the loop, was up front about the case, and maintained a very professional attitude. She understood the law and was able to help those that did not attend Law School understand. She was available, honest, and valued our input. Her only concern was that we followed the law and received what we were asking for within the legal limits. I will most definitely utilize her services again, if needed.
