Kathryn Fields is truly a dedicated expert in her area of expertise and has literally changed (for the far better) our lives since we've hired her for various family law related matters. Nobody ever wants to have to hire an attorney, but unfortunately there are people that you can only deal with legally and that was an important and valuable lesson we learned, thanks to her.
She's highly knowledgeable, very confident, and she is direct...which is much appreciated. We highly recommend Kathryn for family law issues.

Kathryn came recommended to me by a friend of my mom's, and I cannot emphasize enough how awesome she is. She takes the time to explain situations, to indicate with her years of experience where something is likely to lead but *also* where it could lead and how to prepare for it. She will tell you how to minimize extraneous costs, what are *Big* things and what are not-so-big things. She truly truly cares about her clients and you absolutely feel like you've got a pro on your side. She is incredibly thorough and is sheer competence in the courtroom.
Your family is the most important thing in your life; I know it is in mine. Kathryn does a wonderful job at helping me protect mine.

Kathryn is extremely professional, knowledgeable and achieves the best results possible. She provides superb legal advice, outstanding legal documents based on the law and knows how to deal with attorneys who tend to bully others. Kathryn is extremely effective in achieving the best outcomes for her clients. She listens, understands, has the highest integrity and a heart of gold. Kathryn is the best attorney I have ever worked with and has become a family friend. I have never been disappointed with her work or effort and have found her to be extremely dedicated to being the best for her client. Kathryn has been my attorney for over 3 years and I never want to hire anyone else. She adopts new methods to communicate and ensures her clients are always kept abreast of their case. I was deployed in Iraq and was able to transfer legal documents to Kathryn via pdf. We still utilize pdf documents to get documents exchanged quickly. Thank you Kathryn for all you do and for keeping my family together. I highly recommend Kathryn if you want the best results.

I wish to highly recommend Kathryn Fields as a conscientious, knowledgeable, tenacious, and articulate lawyer (both on paper and in Court). Additionally, she is most reassuring as the entire process of your case "unfolds", which is a great comfort...

Kathryn is very knowledgeable about family law, and not just about the statutes, but also about the way it commonly gets handled in courts or arbitrations. She is also very confident in her way of handling the matter and she always comes up with the recommended way of approaching a particular problem, rather than leaving it to a client. While her way of handling a particular issue may sometimes look unnecessary complex or lengthy to a lay person, at the end of the day it becomes clear that it maximizes the chance of winning. And she is very good at explaining the reasons too.

An experienced attorney, Kathryn was always thorough and honest. With a consultative approach, Feedback was direct and based on experience, not emotional need. Every deadline was met and every brief that Kathryn wrote was superb. Kathryn is straight forward, fair minded, and supportive. Her knowledge of the family law system is exceptional. Results oriented, Kathryn is a trusted and focused guide through the nightmare of family litigation. After a two year struggle, we emerged victorious and our future is brilliant. My family and I strongly advocate Kathryn’s services.

I would HIGHLY recommend this lawyer. I used her initially 10 years ago when she represented me in my divorce. She is very thorough and is awesome at looking at all the possible options that may play out. She does a great job of filing for the right things in a timely manner. I have used her several times for post-divorce issues and will continue to use her. She keeps me updated at all times and clearly explains in laymen's terms what is going on.

Working with Kathryn Fields was to my benefit. I was referred to her by a very trust worthy friend and the comments from my friend preceeding my meeting with Kathryn, turned out to be absolutely true. She's highly intelligent, honest, sincere and very detail oriented... something I am not. Quite often I wanted to veer off-track emotionally, but was always kept on point in a thoughtful and sensitive manner. All my questions were answered truthfully, even though they were not always what I was hoping for. At least I had the truth before me and I could make the decision based upon the facts, not just what I was foolishly hoping for.
I would highly recommend Kathryn to friends as I already have. Good woman, great attorney!

For the money spent, was disappointed with the service received. I went with this attorney because of the experience they had, even though their rate was higher than others. In exchange, I was expecting timely and responsive service.
Although knowledgeable, getting a response sometimes took over a week. I had often had to follow up to ensure that progress was being made on my case. This increase in time led to an increased bill. My goals were achieved, but it seems to have cost twice as much and taken three times as long as I would have expected.

For integrity and honesty, there is none better than Katryn. She told me the truth throughtout my case, not necessarily what I wanted to hear, but always what I needed to hear. Her knowledge of family law is outstanding. She always treated me with respect. She gave me excellent advice.
