  1. Divorce and separation
    50%
    When couples with children divorce, they need to quickly address schedules for the children to spend time with both parents. They also need to determine how to divide the income between the parents so that the needs are met. Once these preliminary issues are resolved, the couple can address property and other issue.

  2. Family
    50%
    I believe that lawyers should help families survive divorce. Families are forever. While the parents may no longer be husband and wife, they will always be the mother and father in the family. An amicable divorce with a compassionate attorney helps families achieve that goal.

In defense of Kate Vetrano
Kate was highly recommended to me by a friend. She came into my life when I was as low as an ant's little belly. She became my backbone and kept me upright during the darkest days of my life. She gave me the strength and courage to make it to the other side of divorce after 37 years of marriage. Our meetings were only as long as they needed to be. Kate was fair but firm and worked and fought on my behalf to ensure for me the brightest and easiest of futures. My unfaithful, errant x-husband was shocked that I had actually found the best lawyer of all. I highly recommend Kate Vetrano - her future clients will be blessed to have her in their corner.

I couldn't have made a better choice- Kate is the total package
My divorce was complex and painful, requiring competence, sound judgment and a learned pragmatism on the part of my attorney. After interviewing over ten attorneys, the decision to engage with Kate Vetrano was the wisest choice I could have made. Kate kept me grounded and focused on the end game. She also had a view towards settling things amicably and she had the skill and savvy to navigate a complicated set of circumstances.She also advocated for my children and helped me to make sure that their interests were served fully as well as mine. I would refer any one I know to seek out Kate's counsel. I couldn't be more pleased with the relationship of trust and respect that we built together. I am very grateful to Kate Vetrano and I will never forget how she helped me to get through what has to be one of the most difficult experiences of my life with feeling like I had a top rate advocate who provided extremely valuable counsel.

Kate Vetrano is Highly Recommended
She is a no nonsense, experienced divorce lawyer I appreciated and would highly recommend. After years of unsuccessfully trying to resolve marital differences on our own, I selected Kate Vetrano to help me initiate and navigate thru an 'Amicable Divorce' involving several million dollars in assets, so my ex and I could better enjoy my few remaining years. She did exactly that. I received to-the-point pre-declaration advice, detailed post declaration 'to do's' and 'don't do's'. We/she negotiated a settlement that my now ex and I are both as comfortable with as can be. My 'ex' and I are still friends. Kate certainly helped me start a new chapter in my life, and all was accomplished within 6 months. Again, I appreciated her no nonsense, to-the-point approach, her belief in amicable divorces, and her ability to deliver.

One of the best in the tri state area
Kate is one of the most professional and trustworthy people i have met. She made a world of difference to my case and accomplished what my last attorney. My advise to everybody is to stop wasting moneyon your current lawyer and call her right now you will be happy you did.

So much thanks to Kate Vetrano
My first meeting with Kate Vetrano was a big turning point in my life. She calmly assured me, as I panicked, that I would not lose my children, that I could protect my children and myself, and that I had rights to financial support. She informed me that I was not alone - at a time when I felt completely alone. She helped me strategize so that I had a smart, safe plan to file for divorce against a very controlling husband. Once I filed, she knew exactly what to do in response to my husband's antics - and we quickly finalized a custody agreement and began the process for establishing support. She consistently and effectively acted in my best interest. She always took into consideration my wishes, and was fantastic with communicating with me to make sure we were on the same page. She and her office staff were all top-notch professionals, and she was right - I never felt alone. Although this was not an amicable situation, I was very pleased at how Kate handled everything, and in the end we did not go to court. Amazingly, we came to a settlement after about a year - and thanks to Kate I am now adjusting to my "new normal", and moving forward with a happy, healthy life for myself and my kids. I highly recommend Kate Vetrano!

awesome professional advice conscientiously leading to the best end-results of a client and the family
Kate presented it for me as a second opinion for a formidable case with confidence, concentration, focus, efficiency, and conscientiousness, above all, with such a best humanity in the globe. I regret that I had already committed to another good attorney at the time when I met with her.

Thank you to Kate Vetrano
Dear Mrs. Vetrano. When I walked into your office today I felt helpless as I have been worrying about this since I first received the notice. Fifteen minutes with you and then spending time with your colleague gave me hope. I felt I had been the "good guy" all these years but was being punished for things I hadn't done and couldn't see any light but your thoughtful and professional manner changed that. I want to thank you for your grace and look forward to working with you through this trying time. Thank you again. Paul

Kate Vetrano is both highly competent and compassionate.
The moment I met Kate, I felt confident in her ability to see me safely through my divorce. She was professional, yet always kind and encouraging. I was able to simply stand back and let her take care of the confusing details in a divorce. I knew that she always had my best interest at heart. My advice to anyone going through a divorce... keep your focus on the kids and don't jump into another relationship, but rather take some time on your own. It's wonderful to discover yourself again!

A caring and supportive lawyer
I would recommend Kate without reservation or hesitation. She is an excellent lawyer who is both caring and supportive lawyer. Kate was recommended to me by a friend and I was very impressed. She conducts herself and her law firm with professionalism and a caring attitude. I approached Kate to represent me in my divorce. During the process she identified that divorce may not be the only course for my spouse and I. She drafted an excellent letter to my spouse indicating that divorce was not the only option for us to consider. She highlighted that marriage is a difficult and sometimes very hard relationship to maintain, but with the right approach and an appropriate counsellor that marriages can be saved and repaired. The letter was sent a few months ago and my spouse and I have since found a marriage counselor we can work with. Without Kate's insight and suggestion we would have progressed to a divorce and most likely be living separate lives. Today we are working on our marriage and both fully committed to its success. Thanks in part to Kate. I recommend Kate and her law firm highly.

Kate Vetrano
Kate Vetrano provided me both the professional and personal guidance to make my divorce as smooth and painless as possible. I was able to achieve an aimicable divorce that allows me to maintain my relationship with my college age children and my ex-wife. I enthusiastically recommend Kate as an attorney, counselor, and friend in these matters. It's unique to find an attorney that will be all three for you.

Kate Vetrano is a Highly Qualified Law Professional
I met with Kate for a consultation meeting on my divorce. Before the meeting, I was very pessimistic and thought it was the end of the world, at least for me! After Kate thoughtfully, from every aspect of PA Family Law, analyzed my situation and provided me with her expert advice, I am confident that I will be able to get through this “dark nightmare”. It is Kate who has saved my life, literally! Kate is a highly qualified law professional not only with 30 years experience, but also compassionate and approachable. I trust Kate and look forward to working with her down the road.

I can't say enough about Kate Vetrano.....
I can't say enough about Kate Vetrano. Her advice was invaluable in every aspect of my divorce. She consistently gave good advice on how to handle interactions with the other party that enabled us to execute an agreement on custody, property and support that put my children's interest forefront. Kate and her team were always available to answer any of my questions and alleviate all of my concerns. Going through divorce is devastating but I never felt alone with Kate on my side. My divorce was handled in an expeditious manner (90 days) which allowed me to move on with my life and begin the healing process!

Excellent
In a divorce-from-hell, Kate has provided me with excellent support on a variety of topics, from property to custody. Unlike my first Philly lawyer, Kate knew that in Montgomery County not only was the value of my house at the time of marriage my separate property, but also that 5% of that value, multiplied by the number of years of marriage, is ALSO my separate property. This obscure fact turned out to be very helpful! Also, she responds to emails and keeps me informed. Her staff seems quite professional and competent.

Kate Vetrano, Professional, Compassionate, Connected, Honest, Determined, True Grit, Attorney
Dear Kate, How do I thank you? The last 15 months were quite the battle, yet the battle was won! You reached for and attained more for me than I ever thought possible. And you are SOOOOO good on so very many levels not the least of which are your compassion, professionalism, honesty, knowledge, grace, grit, determination, and even "The Cable Guy" can take lessons from you because YOU know how to "GIT 'ER DONE" Seriously Kate, all of the above are heartfelt sentiments, however, I wish I had other avenues to express my gratitude and admiration for the job you do, the person you are, and the way you never ever let me down for a single second. Wheather I needed to be pushed forward or held back by the colar, you knew it instantly and made it happen. Be it weekday or weekend 6am or 11pm I felt you were with me every moment, you asnwered my calls and e-mails like I was the only concern in your life, you are a true and amazing credit to your profession! While it was a big battle in my life, I never felt alone, always knew you had my front as well as my back, you even reached out to pull up my boot straps when needed. I will never forget everything you've done for me nor miss an opportunity to sing your praise as well as praise of each person on your staff who you have well groomed to model your strength and consistancy. Love, Admiration and Gratitude! Judy
