Definitely recommend
Erin has been my attorney for about 5 years now. She’s always professional and courteous, knowledgeable and efficient. I always feel more at ease knowing that if I have an issue, I can reach out to her and she will always respond in a timely manner. It’s comforting to know that if I need anything, she’s there to count on.

If you want someone to fight for you then Erin is the Attoerney you want
I went to Erin Catey because I had already seen the results she gets in my daughters child support/ custody case. Erin not only walked me through every step of my divorce paperwork she always did what was the best for me. Erin has a lot of knowledge and is a No Nonsense Attorney. We actually ended a mediation because of the nonsense, but when we went back I received everything plus more that I was was owed.

Best Family Law Attorney!
After using a paralegal and not an attorney for my divorce and my Ex completely backed out on all of his "promises" I hired Erin for child support and time sharing issues. Erin was very thorough when reviewing my case. Completely looked out for my best interest and the best interest of my children. She has Kept me updated through out the entire process. I never felt like I couldn't talk to her or get a hold of her. She always made me feel like my case was important to her and a top priority. I have referred Erin to several of my friends and family and they have all said the same thing!

1st Class Lawyer
Erin Catey goes above and beyond to not only defend her clients but educate them on the legal process and options available. She worked with me hands on from the opening consultation to even after the final court date due to new items that came up. The overall response times were almost instant & she always kept her cool even during situations when I even got frustrated. She defended me much better than I expected and defended my rights at every step of the way. I have already recommended her to many of my close friends and associates because her level of service and knowledge of the legal system. She was even able to refer me out to additional services that were not in her normal practice areas. With those referrals for completely separate business I was able to get the best support in all of my areas of need. Hands down best attorney experience I have ever had.

Excellent
Erin was always prepared while representing me and knew my case well. Her calm demeanor was very helpful throughout all the court proceedings. She is very level headed and kept me informed on how my case would proceed each step of the way. She not only helped me win my case, but she kept me sane throughout the process.
