When I was new to Wallingford and in need of a family law attorney I was told that Kate Rizzo was not only the best on town, but the best in the Greater New Haven area. Having been told that I consulted Attorney Rizzo on two separate occasions for different family law related matters. I found her not only to be extremely knowledgeable and professional, but also straight forward, practical and compassionate. In short, Kate possesses all the qualities needed in an attorney who has chosen to work in family law, an area of practice where emotions can run high and litigants can so easily lose sight of what's most important. I highly recommend Kate Rizzo.

I recently used her in a child custody case. She was unprofessional, unprepared and billed me for documents she created that she knew the court would not review. $1000 for a single plan she knew she had no power to create or enforce. Please do not use her.

Attorney Rizzo was appointed Guardian Ad Litem for my son a year and a half ago. Initially I was concerned about having someone whom I knew nothing about assigned to represent my son. However, my concerns were soon alleviated as I came to recognize Attorney Rizzo's ability to gracefully handle my son's difficult situation. Trust is imperative in a relationship such as theirs and her straightforwardness and honesty has made him feel well cared for and respected. She is an effective advocate,maintaining an unbiased view,one in which the child's well being is of only concern. I only hope other families experiencing turbulent times might be as fortunate as my son, represented by such an adept and compassionate attorney.
