Excellent, affordable support!!
Kathy represented me years ago when I got divorced. I had to go back to court for minor matter, and considered representing myself; I didn't want the expense of hiring a lawyer. I called Kathy, she recommended their a-la-carte services, where she would basically help me on a limited support basis. Thank God I did this!! Kathy reviewed all my forms and made many suggestions / updates. Without her help I would have had to re-file. She then walked me thru the process, prepared me for what to expect, warned me of pitfalls, etc. I was then able to represent myself effectively and confidently. The limited fees that I paid were well worth it; they saved me time and money. I recommend having her and her team review all situations and documents, especially financial docs, or issues involving kids. The process is confusing and overwealming, and she is truly an expert. Thank you again, Kathy!!!

Excellent Dissolution Attorney
Kathy Boufford and her team went above and beyond for me. Kathy exudes a combination of compassion and strength which gave me a sense of peace in an otherwise extremely stressful time in my life. Kathy represented me very well, always trying to achieve the best outcome for me. I found Kathy’s advice to be straightforward, clear and calming and responsive to each and every one of my concerns. I would recommend Kathy and her team to anyone who finds their marital life compromised and who needs a strong, clear thinking advocate. I am thankful for Kathy and her team for their diligent and honest work ethic.

Mediation Services
We used Kathy Boufford for mediation services. She was very thorough as she guided us throughout the process. Explained exactly what the law was and consulted other professionals on our behalf so that we could make informed decisions. Attorney Boufford made a difficult situation much easier through her professional yet compassionate approach. Her staff was a pleasure to work with as well.

Thorough, knowledgeable about the law, and effective in court
Hired Attorney Boufford for post-divorce filings when my ex wasn't following through on agreements. She knew how to handle the situation and was prepared and effective in court. Followed up after court, and really cared about making sure everything was taken care. I would highly recommend her.

Smart ~ Knowledgeable ~ Collaborative
Kathy has been my attorney for many years with regard to an ongoing alimony/child support issue. She makes sure I understand all options available to me at each juncture in the process. Kathy has always worked collaboratively with me to make decisions and guide me through the process. I believe Kathy to be very smart and knowledgeable about the law and grounded with common sense which enables her to relate on different levels to different people as circumstance dictates. I have recommended Kathy to friends and acquaintances in the past and will continue to do so.

handled correctly, start to finish
From the initial consultation until the final disposition of the case Kathy Boufford kept my totally updated and, I believe, brought about the best possible result for me. I absolutely thank her for her work and would, though I hope it never comes to pass, use her and her firm again.

Knowledgeable, collected, thoughtful
Kathy presents as an extremely experienced, knowledgeable and collected attorney. During a chaotic and stressful life event, having level-headed, calm, non-reactionary legal representation can make all the difference, and Kathy exemplified this. Kathy also has the ability to grasp more unique situations and more complex financial scenarios quickly, and integrate them into her overall strategy to secure as good an outcome as possible. I would say the only criticism would be one that is likely true of most successful attorneys, and that is she was sometimes less accessible than I would've liked. However, there was never a time that she didn't respond to me in a realistically timely fashion.

Would definitely recommend Kathy
Kathy has been wonderful. She has always advised me well, explained things thoroughly, and prepared me for what I could expect in court. I have always felt she is incredibly ethical, and very understanding and compassionate. I appreciate that she usually warns me about the worst case scenario, but also explains what we are hoping for, so I am prepared for either.

Wonderful Attorney
Kathy Boufford represented me when a modification had to be made to my divorce agreement and presented to the judge. She was highly recommended to me by several people and now I know why! She is intelligent, patient and very knowledgeable with the law and interpersonal matters. I highly recommend her.

Mediation for Douglas V Douglas
Kathy Boufford provided excellent service as a Mediator in our case. Her extensive knowledge and comprehensive attention to detail allowed an extremely harrowing and distressful situation to be managed with great efficiency. It was a great comfort to have the case in her hands. I would recommend her, and her team, to anyone with the need for legal counsel.

Wonderful experience
I had an injury at work and while they paid for all the medical costs my doctor recommended that I speak with a lawyer. I was hesitant because I felt like I was being treated fairly by work and it seemed like a fairly open and shut case. I, however, hired Kathy Boufford after meeting with her. Kathy and her team worked very diligent on my case and kept me up to date with everything. Before hiring Kathy I had to call the worker’s comp office myself and speak with them about any issues but after I hired them they did it all for me. They also reviewed everything to make sure that I received all the benefits I was due. It really put my mind at ease to have that help especially since I was dealing with trying to heal after multiple surgeries. During the hearing of the case I was very grateful to have an attorney to walk me through all of the legal parts and be there as I spoke with the judge to help me make the right decisions. I also (despite it being a worker’s comp case and it being a set settlement amount) got a better settlement amount than what the guidelines were. I believe this was due to having a lawyer and the company just didn’t want to go back and forth so they put a higher number on it. If anyone is debating whether or not to get a lawyer for a worker’s comp case I highly recommend Kathy! My case took a few years and she made sure I was comfortable with every aspect of the case before I closed it out. Kathy and her team were wonderful and I am so thankful I made the decision to work with them!

Caring and patient
Kathy helped me through a difficult divorce. I always felt empowered and more confident after speaking with her and she never made me feel like my feelings or concerns were trivial. She was compassionate but also very honest regarding all likely outcomes. She was strong when it was hard for me to be strong. I am so grateful that I had her on my side during my divorce.
