Professional & Trustworthy
Attorney Katherine Bakes helped me when no one else would. She professionally handled the collection of back child support owed by my ex husband, who is very difficult to deal with. I am forever grateful. If you are owed money, Attorney Bakes will hunt it down. Do not hesitate to retain her! Highly recommended!!

Excellent Lawyer
Attorney Bakes is by far the most intelligent and gifted lawyers in the state of Connecticut. She knows how to address your legal needs in a swift manor and is always willing to provide advice. I would recommend her first to anyone in need of legal assistance. As a law student I hope I can become a lawyer of her ranking.

Professional and Good Prices
Really direct attorney, patient, and genuinely wants to help. She had the best prices in Bridgeport for my divorce. Responded to my phone calls and e-mails within hours and helped me understand the court process; she didn't sugarcoat anything either, which I really appreciated. I really recommend her.

Great Attorney! Very responsive and confident!
Attorney Bakes is very knowledgeable in forming businesses. I needed an attorney to guide me through the process of starting my consulting business. Attorney Bakes advised me on what type of entity to form and how to structure my business. She also explained Connecticut's workers' compensation laws, tax implications with the federal government and state, and state compliance requirements. Highly recommended!

Attorney Katherine Bakes Exceeded My Expectations!
In my particular circumstances, the person whom I co-signed a student loan for, defaulted. I had expended over $22,000.00 on this debt; and I was unable to collect back any money from the student borrower. With reluctance, I came to terms with not getting repaid. In an impromptu meeting with Attorney Bakes, she presented me with an immediate plan of action that would guarantee repayment from the principal borrower. I am elated to report that we will be settling soon. Katherine Bakes is a professional- driven by her ethical and steadfast commitment to work hard for her clients. I highly recommend her.
