“I have known Kathleen for better than 10 years and know her to be a true advocate for her clients. She is very easy going and down to earth. This demeanor, however, cannot completely hide the fact that she is a fierce advocate for her clients, and her results speak volumes. She works diligently to prepare her cases for trial and is willing to zealously fight for everything her client deserves. She is not intimidated by the size of the corporation she is suing, or the size of the law firm that is defending the case. She and I associate on select cases and I am very impressed with her dedication to her/our clients. She is a great communicator and excellent attorney. The clients I refer to her are instantly placed in good hands. She is the first person I think of when I get a case larger than I can handle on my own. She gives her clients her all and gets great results and is well respected. She is an excellent attorney with the highest standards of advocacy and ethics. I endorse her.
