Great Lawyer on Cape Cod
Kate was our attorney for a real estate sale on Cape Cod. She and her team (paralegal Kim) are wonderful to work with. Kate was very attentive to our situation, solved problems we needed negotiated, and met our closing date with no problems. I would recommend Kate and would use her again in the future.

Great
Kate Mitchell was exactly the right lawyer for us in updating our wills and medical directives. We felt comfortable with her right away; this was important to us for this particular set of tasks. She listened carefully as we described not just our wishes but our unique family and financial situation, and recommended an approach that we had not initially considered but was absolutely the best path. We are very pleased with the result!
