Expertise to Get the Job Done!
When my mom passed away, her estate was left with a distressingly large tax bill that I had no way of paying. I had one CPA who had "experience" with the IRS tell me that my best bet would be to sell my mom's townhouse to cover the tax-bill. He said an offer in compromise would never work, and that I may as well just face the music. Thank goodness I found Katie. She clearly has the knowledge and expertise to negotiate with the IRS because her OIC was accepted. She negotiated the tax bill down from roughly a year's salary to a week's salary! A huge difference. Thank you, Katie - this was a potentially life-altering event that you helped me navigate quite successfully. You're a life-saver.

Incredibly dedicated
I can’t say enough positive things about Katie! She is dedicated and knowledgeable when it comes to her practice. She is honest with you and gives you an outline of what to expect before she even takes your place. She has become very busy recently but I view this as a good thing!! She does not neglect you, this means she is doing a good job and having other people notice.

Easy and pleasant to work with!
I hired Kathryn because I needed to probate a sizable check held by the state after my wife died. As soon as I met her I felt comfortable with her. She provided the service I needed for a fair fee and communicated what was happening throughout. Not only would I recommend her to others with similar needs, but I intend to use her services again soon.

Professional & compassionate.
While I am not an attorney I have worked in the legal profession all of my adult life. I have known Katie for several years. When my brother passed away, she was the first attorney that I thought to call. Not only has she made this easy for me (the personal representative), but Mrs. Everlove-Stone has also met with my parents at their home to explain what has to be done. While I had no doubts to begin with being the first time in an attorney-client relationship, she has confirmed what I have always thought that Mrs. Everlove-Stone is not only extremely intelligent and knowledgeable, but she is also very compassionate and understanding.

Honest Knowledgeable. We are very happy with her service.
Kathryne is one of a kind. She has handled several of our family legal issues from Advanced Directives Estate Planning Wills and home purchases. When it comes to any legal requirements she is the first person I call for advise.She is always a pleasure to deal with!

The best of best the ABA has to offer
After my husband's passing, I felt totally overwhelmed with grief and confusion about how I should handle my new financial situation. When I met Katie, I knew that this burden would be lifted competently and gently. She explained matters so simply and carefully that I knew what choices to make, and I am still pleased with my estate planning. I cannot sing her praises enough: she was my beacon of light at the end of a long, dark tunnel; and I am forever indebted to her for the peace of mind she gifted me.

Worst attorney in my 40 years of experience
Honestly, I do not know how she even keeps her license to practice law. I hired her for a very important matter. She accepted the case. She absolutely would not communicate. Numerous calls, messages, emails. After finally getting her attention by telling her I would file a complaint, she would apologize and promise to get working. She never did anything at all! I have worked with many attys in the last 40 years and I have never seen a worse one, or one more disorganized. Also, this is an honest post. I am not an atty, nor do I work for one. I am posting this simply as a former client to worn others. I would give her ZERO stars if I could.
