Divorce is a tough situation for all involved. For me, the only good thing about my divorce was my lawyer, Kate Coverdale. She is extremely professional and dedicated, always answering my calls and emails promptly. But, what I will never forget, is that every time I left her office, I felt better about my situation and myself. I can't tell you how important that is.
When my divorce was over, I felt as though "thank you" wasn't enough. I highly recommend Kate Coverdale.

Kate Coverdale is an exceptional attorney, and extremely knowledgeable about divorce law.
She was very attentive to my needs. I was told by my spouse what I can't do, what I can't have. She reassured me by looking me in the eye and saying "I hope you are not taking legal advice from him." I came into her office beaten down and scared. I was lost and fearful that this chapter of my life was ending. I didn't know what the outcome would be. I didn't know what lay ahead.
She gave me the guidance, the strength and the courage to get through this unexpected time in my life. She gave me the confidence to end my marriage on my terms. She gave me the confidence to ask for more than I expected.
Her expert financial background gave me the confidence to take what I earned from my divorce and move on. I was 100% satisfied with the results Kate achieved in my case, and will forever feel indebted for the services she offered. Kate went above and beyond the expected role of an attorney.
It was a privilege to have her represent me. Outstanding counsel! I highly recommend Kate.
Thank you so much for everything you have done for me.

Kate Coverdale is an incredibly well respected attorney with the firm of Zlock & Coverdale. Kate was the primary attorney steering my complicated divorce. Specifically, she was the main person who analyzed and managed the financial analysis of the marital estate - which was the source of the most complexity and controversy. Kate did a phenomenal job in organizing, communicating, planning and strategizing throughout the entire process. All along, she addressed all of my emotional concerns and fears, providing a very solid basis of trust and a calm approach to all interactions. Her professionalism and controlled demeanor was unfailing, and allowed for our team to consistently maintain the higher ground, and garner the respect of the court. Her preparation of all documents and her understanding and ability to persuasively present our side made me feel happy to be in such competent hands. She was able to expertly interact with the many other people involved with the case - such as business accountants, business lawyers, and business evaluators. At every turn, I felt that she was able to foster a sense of a unified front, and that we had a strong position supported by multiple people.
After several years of working with Kate, I would have to say I am very pleased with how well represented I was throughout my divorce and equitable distribution process. No one can control the often belligerent, unfair, and irrational things that the opposing side chooses to do. Yet, in the context of many unbelievable and disappointing attacks from the other side, Kate maintained the course and persistently pointed and steered me in a direction that proved to be a successful one. She never compromised her professional standards of conduct, and at the same time never appeared weak or passive. If not for her and the firm, I personally would have not been able to maintain a level head and make clear decisions on my own. Kate allowed me to vent, and then she was able to be a buffer that removed the emotionalism and reactivity. In short, I am extremely pleased with the final outcome of the divorce - being able to step back from it and see it more objectively.
