  • John F Murano

    I have known Ms. Gilbert for many years as both an adversary and having mutual clients requiring representation in our respective areas of concentration. Ms. Gilbert is a compassionate, caring and highly skilled attorney who fights hard for her clients' rights. I give her my unqualified endorsement.

  • Brian C Freeman

    I endorse this lawyer. Kathryn is truly a lawyer's lawyer!! I can only describe her as knowledgeable, aggressive and always prepared to negotiate so long as her clients are able to get the most equitable resolutions in their cases. There is no question that she gives her clients more than 100% and if you retain her, you have retained one of the best.
