  • Joseph Martin Barrett

    I endorse this lawyer. Catherine is a wonderful warm and compassionate attorney. That said, she has the ferociousness against insurance companies and those who harm people of a lioness! And she's brilliant with law and procedure. The complete and excellent trial lawyer!
