Attorney Kate Haakonsen is an extreme expert in all the legal areas of divorce. She is a master in the collaborative process, and Kate walked me through each and every step of the way!
Attorney Haakonsen is so very professional, intelligent, patient, calm and confident. She knew all the legal matters of divorce, and was very aware to make sure to explain them to me making sure I understood them as we worked together.
Attorney Haakonsen was very compassionate while working with me through this journey. I always felt Kate had my best interest in mind, and she always made the time to listen and reassure me and my fears.
Attorney Haakonsen is simply the Best of the Best!

Attorney Haakonsen was extremely knowledgeable about all the ins and outs of the divorce process, which was very confusing to me. She explained everything clearly and carefully. She listened to what I wanted out of the divorce and advised me the best way to go about it. Attorney Haakonsen not only looked out for my best interest, but my children's as well. She is also very trustworthy and compassionate. I highly recommend Attorney Haakonsen for whatever legal issues that may arise for you.
