Thanks Catherine
Hiring Catherine Pavur to guide me through my divorce was undoubtedly one of the best decisions I have made. Catherine guided me though every part of the divorce process with compassion, accuracy, legal expertise, and with an added benefit of being a wonderful person to work with. Her knowledge and experience made the beginning stages of working through the complexity of detailing, separating, and documenting assets a doable process. At each stage where appearances in court were required her guidance turned those appearances from a dreaded unknown to a reasonably comfortable experience. Her experience and knowledge proved invaluable when I had to go through a deposition where she worked with me and advised me on possible pitfalls that, without her, I most likely would have fallen ignorantly into. In the final stage where the court ordered a mediation process where Catherine watched out carefully and fought for my benefit I must thank her for her advice on every offer and counter offer. For it worked out that in the end, with her suggestions and analysis that I was able to pursue the path that I desired and believe I was meant to follow with very little debt and able to retain sufficient assets needed to pursue that course. My sincerest thanks Catherine.

Experience and Compassion
Catherine handled my divorce. A state pension became involved and she handled that seamlessly. There was a post-divorce lawsuit; the separation agreement she wrote held up against the claims. She is a great listener and always offered reasoned advice.

Catherine has a demeanor and professionalism that makes a very difficult and emotional situation manageable from a personal level. And based on her extensive experience, she offers options versus just telling her clients "... this is the way it is." As with most things in life, it's all about options. Having one's back against a wall is simply an untenable position and she understands that! She is soft spoken and empathetic, but don't be fooled. She can slug it out with the best of them. I'd put her up against any attorney, regardless of the size of their firm. She is a force to be reckoned with the the situation calls for it. I've referred several friends to Catherine and each has thanked me. Net-net, she knows what she's doing and she will paint both sides of the story so that her clients can consider their options before moving forward. Catherine comes with my highest recommendation. And believe me when I say, that's not something I often say about anyone. You're in good hands.

She is the best! Professional, capable, brilliant.
We had a very difficult, complicated situation, and others were unable to handle it. There was so much evidence to review. Attorney Pavur not only understood the information available, but she had great insight regarding people involved. This makes all the difference in complex cases. I will say unequivocally that she helped to rescue my son from a terrible situation. We are always grateful for her help.

No Non-Sense, Straight & to the Point
Title says it all. I actually switched attorney's in the middle to my divorce to Catherine, because my previous counsel was a complete and total Bozo. I got what I expected, too bad it took two tries to get it right. But that's to the credit of Catherine.

Run away
Very unprofessional. Her advice led me to spend at least $25,000 more than I needed to do. I found out that she's known for being a shark who takes advantage of her clients after I had my experience -- hoping I can save others from my plight.
