Review Cathleen Norton
  • The best experience possible in a terrible situation

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Jared

    Hired attorney

    I'll never quite be able to repay Cathleen Norton and her exceptional team at the firm (thanks Albertine!, Heidi and Aine) for their help in resolving my child custody issues.

    Cathleen picked up the pieces of a messy divorce started by another attorney and expertly guided me through the steps necessary to fight a virtual onslaught of legal attacks designed to reduce the time I would be able to spend with him.

    She was super informative, respectful of my financial issues and worked closely with me to mitigate my financial burden while pulling out all the stops during trial.

    It was obvious when walking into court that everyone - from other attorneys to the bailiffs, clerks and court reporters up to the judge - liked, respected and held her in high esteem for her pragmatic approach to case management and keeping conflict low. There is really no value you can put on that in the courtroom.

    I'd recommend Cathleen to any Dad fighting to have their kids in their lives, or anyone really. She exudes confidence (for good reason) and really made me feel like someone was working for me and set my mind at ease during one of the most stressful and scary times in my life.

    At the end of the day she got me exactly what I asked for regarding custodial time and parental status in a very high conflict divorce. She made me reasonable when I was acting emotionally and fought like the devil for me on the issues I was most concerned with.

    May you never need a lawyer for this kind of thing, but if you do, I'd highly recommend Cathleen Norton.

    I found this lawyer online and it was TRUE divine intervention! I'm a domestic violence victim and now I can say that with my head held high because of her legal representation of me and my case. She delievered just what she said she would and with equal zeal too! She more than earned a rating of 10 and what she provided me will never be forgotten! Cathleen E. Norton help me secure my life and the future looks so clear now. As us egyptians say, shukran habibi, thank you dear.

  • Excellent with Move-away orders

    Hired attorney

    I hired Ms. Norton for an out of state move away request. I appreciated Ms. Nortons honesty and integrity during this process. From the beginning Ms. Norton and her
    associates were honest with me as they explained that move away requests are very hard to grant but they will do their very best to help me if I decided to retain her. I can honestly say that Ms. Norton and her team really know what they are doing and I know they did their absolute best to help me. In the end of this long battle my move away was granted and I was able to relocate out of state with my children. If you are looking for a dedicated ,honest attorney that really knows what they are doing I would highly recommend Ms. Norton. She helped me tremendously.

  • One of the best!

    Cathleen and everyone in her office is just amazing! My case had been dragging on for 8 years. I had gone through 3 attorneys and consulted with a 4th before I found Cathleen. From our first meeting, I knew that she was the right person for my case. She made me feel that she was personally vested in ensuring that I received a positive outcome. She took on my case just weeks before a scheduled settlement conference and yet she showed up completely prepared. It was amazing, and things only got better for me from that point on. In the end she was able to get me divorced within 4 months of taking my case. She truly cares about her clients!

  • Great attorney

    Besides being very experienced attorney, Ms Norton is very well respected within the community of lawyers. She has been handling my child visitation and child support case after my ex took me to court. Not only Cathleen is very knowledgeable about the laws and past court cases, but she is also very aggressive and articulate in the courtroom. I highly recommend Ms. Norton if you think of hiring a lawyer for your family court case.

  • Truly Exceptional

    Hired attorney

    At one point awhile back I'd written a review based on my initial consultation with Cathleen. It was Five Stars. Now, I've been through the entire process, and if I could recommend with more I would. This was an exceptionally difficult journey from Consult to Completion, especially as it related to a 20+ year marriage, children, a longtime family home, you name it. Yet through it all Cathleen was straightforward, pulled-no-punches, matter-of-fact and, perhaps most wonderful, sensitive and compassionate. I soon learned to rely on her wisdom and considerable insight, and that can be hard to do when circumstances such as my family's dynamics may be charged with all manner of twists and turns. I more than recommend Cathleen, and so very much appreciate the incredible group she works with: Heidi, Aine, and Albertine. True, I never want to go through this again, but I could not have picked a better person to represent me.

    I reached out to Cathleen via Avvo, and she replied to me quite quickly- on a Sunday! Also, although she was not the right lawyer for my unique situation, she referred me to a couple of resources that may be able to help.
    Kudos to a caring individual- Cathleen Norton :)

  • Knowledgeable and Trustworthy

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Eric

    Cathleen is a world class lawyer. She's sharp and knowledgeable, but more importantly, she's trustworthy. From the my consultation, I gather she's successful because she combines her expertise in law and street smarts to advise her clients strategically for the long term. I believe what motivates her as a lawyer is to see her clients succeed rather than to fill her bank account. I can tell she has her client's best interest in mind. I still haven't decided what I want to do in my situation, but if divorce is my only option, I know I'm in good hands. Thanks, Cathleen.

  • An Attorney Who Cares

    Knowledgeable and caring, this is what Cathleen is. At our initial consultation, Cathleen listened attentively, answered all questions in details, and at last made the recommendation that truly has my best interest in heart. During those two hours, she made me feel as if I was talking to a helping friend! I walked out of her office feeling much more confident and empowered. Along the divorce process, I kept Cathleen as an advisor. She was very responsive to my phone calls, providing the much needed guidance for me to obtain the best possible outcome. Cathleen is an attorney who cares a lot about her client’s welfare. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a family attorney without any hesitation.
