Kati is one of a kind
Professional, bold and gets the case done. I was in a very stressful divorce and she took her expertise to a level other lawyer's don't have. She is top notch and she will be my attorney always. I am very grateful for her.

Great attorney for a tough case
I worked with Katie two times. She took a case many other attorneys were afraid of. She made me feel confident and comfortable. It made me feel good to know someone was in my corner. I was very happy with my outcome in the case of she made sure I knew everything for every step of the way. Having her in your corner would be a very smart move.

Great Attorney
Kati was extremely professional through every step of the case and knowledgeable as well. I would definitely recommend her to anyone that needs legal help. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Attorney Calvo, her knowledge and experience with the court system was very helpful throughout the case.
