I used Kathleen Marshall for a divorce across the country. Kathy was so great to work with making a difficult situation much easier to deal with. Her communication was excellent, keeping me informed of everything. She handled everything with professionalism, while still having a personality, all in a timely manner. Kathy and her team were excellent to work with and I highly recommend them. They are true advocates for their clients!!

After having a bad experience with another lawyer. Ms Marshall came through for me when I needed a lawyer. Ms Marshall took my case when my previews lawyer wouldn't respond to my case. After talking to Ms Marshall she assure me that she will get my case done. I live Maryland but my case was in Bellingham. I felt comfortable talking to Ms. Marshall. She really cared about my case. She listen to me. Ms. Marshall helped me get my divorce done. She also got me back child support. Because of her I have custody of my kids. Ms. Marshall thank you so much for everything.

I was dealing with a difficult child custody case. There isn't a way to explain the drama involved in this case! For me, the best part about Kathy, is that she truly cared about our case and understood the emotions involved with not being able to see your kids due to a disgruntled ex. She is amazing! She knows all the rules, knows which steps to take first, and knows how to keep you calm when your emotions are running high. She responded to every email - and I sent a lot! The difference between Kathy and other lawyers I have dealt with, is that she truly cares about people and kids and wants to see good things happen to good people. I will recommend Kathy for the rest of my life. thank you Kathy for being so great to us and helping us get visitation with the kids and get the child support ball rolling!!! Most importantly, for teaching us what steps to take and for being there when we needed you. Its nice to have a cheerleader through something like this.

After having a bad experience with another attorney in Bellingham, I can tell you I had a significantly more positive experience with Kathy. In our instance I was representing myself for a child relocation issue and had retained Kathy as an adviser and proxy to help move the paperwork through the court. Kathy was right there with me, listening to the situation, and advising me with her insightful wisdom throughout the process. She is a fascinating and personable woman and very easy to talk to. When the hearing date came, the commisioner surprised everyone and wouldn't let Kathy step away and let me represent myself as I had intended. Even though we were all caught off-guard, she was able to represent me well in the hearing and the relocation that I was seeking was granted.
If you have a legitimate case and aren't just out to abuse the system, I would highly recommend the very competent and inspiring Kathy Marshall as your advocate.

I was indeed sorry to see Kathleen Marshall leave San Juan County.
Kathleen Marshall was a productive contributor to the Public defenders office and the San Juan County Prosecutors Office where she was known as a self-starter. Besides having a high degree of integrity and a cheerful personality, she is one of those rare individuals who can both follow instructions and take initiative, as appropriate. She is strong in time management and her competence extends beyond the skills for which she was originally hired. I watched her handle clients as if they were her own family and after the case was done she would check back with those clients to see how they were doing. Kathleen stood strong in court with her creative arguments and fresh way of looking at each case.
Seldom have I been able to make such an enthusiastic recommendation for an attorney. I have no hesitation in advising a potential client to place their trust in Kathleen Marshall.
