Estate Home Sale
Cathy was extremely helpful in the process of the sale of my late father's home. We ended up selling to a real estate investor, and Cathy researched the company, their business model, and educated me on what they were going to do with the house, and things to watch out for in the contract. She was very responsive, patient, and took time to make sure that I understood all the details. When it came time for paperwork, she handled everything quickly and efficiently, and was always prompt. I felt very comfortable with Cathy, and that she was really invested in making sure we were treated fairly.

Hiring Catherine Was The Best Decision I Ever Made!
Catherine was absolutely wonderful! From my first phone call right up until the discharge she was great and always 100% on top of things. I was so nervous about having to claim bankruptcy and she kept me calm during the whole process. She was always very sweet working with everybody involved but also took authority when she needed to with my debtors and collection agencies. She always kept me informed via email or by phone and she was always very easy to get a hold of and was prompt in returning email and phone calls. Most of all she put tremendous care into everything that she did for me and my case. I know that she takes great pride in what she does and in her Law firm. She just seems like one of those people that loves what she does and loves to help other people. Thank you Catherine for helping me though a pivotal point in my life!

Saved me THOUSANDS!!
Catherine is fantastic, she is knowledgeable, fastidious, diligent, and in my case tough as nails. From the initial consult I could tell she was the right lawyer for the job. Catherine explained everything to me very directly, none of that legal jargon no one understands, and we reviewed all my options. She kept right on top of the situation as it developed and kept me informed and involved all the way through. In the end, she was able to exploit the incompetence and reticence of the opposing counsel and got the case dismissed. Best thing I could have done in this situation was to hire Catherine as my attorney. Would highly recommend to anyone with bankruptcy and/or debt issues.
