Katherine M. Wright, Divorce Coach for Women
I want to thank attorney Caitlin Costigan for her outstanding performance and ongoing legal advice proceeding. I recommend Caitlin with highest regard, as she confidently met my individual circumstances during the legal process with tactful poise. My divorce was a long two year accomplishment that faced many challenges, delays, and unknowns beyond divorce and family matters due to Covid. Caitlin's calm and direct guidance helped me attain the results I deemed unachievable in a quick and easy manner. You can trust her leadership 100%. She went above and beyond to listen to my concerns, fairly advocated my needs during hearings, and most importantly attained the best desired outcome for myself and my daughter. Caitlin created a separation agreement that protected my daughter's needs until adulthood. This agreement was customized for my current needs along with predictable possible future obstacles that may come up as my daughter gets older. I feel confident that following her plan decisively will prevent most of the unwarranted negative things that can occur. This puts me at ease and gives control over future events with confidence. During the emotions of divorce I was not thinking of all the details I would face in the upcoming years. I have already seen the successful strategy behind the details she laid out in my customized agreement. I am so glad she paved the way for our future. Caitlin was able to help me attain sole custody of my daughter. I was able to keep my assets, home, and retirement. It was court ordered for us to use Our Family Wizard for all communication which is a great tool for co- parenting, boundaries, expenses, as well as legal trail of all events that take place after the divorce is final. This is such a peacekeeper and useful tool keeping both parties accountable, with focus on the child's best interest. During the fog of divorce you are so busy healing, working, surviving, and forced to quickly move through the legal system with necessity to move forward. It truly was a pleasure to have and advocate on my side like Caitlin. You will not be disappointed choosing Sladen Family Law to represent you.

Excellent.
I had an excellent experience with lawyer Caitlin Costigan. Due to COVID-19 we had to work remotely, court dates were on Zoom we communicated through emails, text messages and phone calls, she was very good at getting back to me. She is a professional and reliable lawyer.

Caitlin is the absolute best!
With my experience with Diana Sladen and Caitlin Costigan, they are truly the best option for family court. They have helped me extensively from day one and have gone above and beyond to make sure I was completely set between court appearances all the way to financial issues. They are the best in the business and I highly recommend them!

Phenomenal
Caitlin did a phenomenal job working with my now ex wives attorney, who was very slow to respond and not very helpful. She kept calm and pressed the important matters which helped streamline the divorce, while ensuring that the custody and seperation agreement was fair, and achievable. She was always very fast to respond, and ensured she had the most up to date information. When it came to court, she made sure her voice and all the facts were heard by the judge. I would highly recommend.

Flexible and helpful
Caitlin was flexible with all of my needs. Even during the pandemic and not having in person meetings, we communicated through different outlets, like zoom, phone, and email. I was especially grateful when Caitlin was able to help get my divorce hearing bumped up to almost immediately when it was originally set to a month away. She was helpful with communicating with the court for me and helping move things along quickly and smoothly. I’m happy with the service that Caitlin provided me.

Great representation
Caitlin was my attorney representing me in a divorce. We've all heard about cases that drag on way too long but my experience with Caitlin was the opposite. Her interest and actions were focused on fair resolution. Her professionalism not only impressed favorably on me but was a factor in gaining confidence with the opposing party. Those are valuable qualities to have on your side under such circumstances.

Phenomenal
I hired Attorney Costigan to handle a frivolous restraining order keeping me from my children. She prepared hard, and worked hard to make sure I was prepared, and ready for our court date. she was very professional, assertive, strong, and asked all the right questions. The judge vacated the order, and I left court with all my rights restored to me. This will prove to set us up nicely for probate court. I highly recommended Caitlin as she is a hardworking attorney. She always returned my calls, texts, and emails in a timely manner. Thank you Attorney Costigan.

Calm yet tenacious attorney who got the job done.
Caitlin took over my divorce case after another lawyer had been working on it for over a year and was getting nowhere. Caitlin reviewed the case and contacted the opposing council quickly and was ready within a week to spend the day in court with me trying to come to an agreement with my Ex-husband and his attorney. Caitlin explained things thoroughly to me so I could make informed decisions during this time, and when I had questions she was not sure of she reached out to her network and got answers quickly. Because of her calm manner and tenacity (which together is tough to find) I am now divorced. She was able to complete in one week on the case and only one day with opposing council what my first lawyer could not do in over a years time and many meetings. I would recommend Caitlin to others looking for a divorce attorney.

Recommend
Caitlin has helped me during a divorce and as her client she was informative about the process and answered my questions. The Plg form charges an exorbitant amount of money, but she was willing to listen to my concerns.
