    I have known Katy for many years and have always seen her in court offering the highest quality service to her clients. Katy is unfailingly polite, always friendly, very organized and has blown me away with her ability to communicate legal concepts fluently and understandably with all her clients, whether they are native speakers of English or those whose primary language is Spanish. .
