Katie Cameron O’Mailia
Katie O’Mailia is a lawyer you can feel fortunate to have represent you during a very stressful and difficult time in your life. She was there for me in my divorce in a way that helped me understand the process and answer my questions promptly as well as deliver important documents and other pertinent case information through the My Case application she uses in her practice. I always felt very confident that Katie was working diligently and thoroughly during every aspect of filing for my divorce. She was extremely knowledgeable and guided me through every step during the process of gathering information and documentation needed to help assure the most favorable outcome for me in my divorce case. Katie is a very confident yet understanding and kind attorney that always put me at ease in stressful times. She prepared me for my hearing ahead of court date and I felt confident about appearing and presenting my case in the court room when the day came to have my divorce hearing. I am very proud to recommend Katie O’Mailia to anyone needing an attorney for the type cases she specializes in.

Katie is Amazing!!!
I was so pleased in my decision to hire Katie. From the initial consultation to final hearing, Katie was by my side every step of the way. Her and the staff always made sure I was informed and always had my best interest in mind. As a man, married for several years, and had no idea how divorces work, Katie made me feel comfortable, was always available for questions, and lead me in making the best decisions for myself and my future. I would recommend anyone going through such a tuff and trying time as a divorce to give Katie a call. You won’t be disappointed..

Katie was very competent, understanding, determined, & sincere. Her assistant was also a remarkable, customer oriented individual. Their actions assured me I had picked the right advocate for me. If I should ever have a similar need, I will, with our a doubt, be the first office I contact.

Awesome lawyer
She is an amazing lawyer. She helped me with a custody case and all the way up until the day of court and even after she kept me up to date on what's going on. She was very honest about everything so there were no surprises going into court. My case wasn't easy but she did everything she could and me, my husband, and family are so happy with the outcome. I will have her as my lawyer again when the need arises.

Amazing Professional
Katie assisted me through one of the worst situations of my life. She is a strong and passionate lawyer, dedicated to seeking justice. While working through my situation she was so supportive to me and my family. She took time to explain everything and made sure I understood all angles before each step was taken. Her professionalism in the court room was top notch and definitely worthy of respect. I dont know how I would have made it through without her strength and resolve. I am so thankful for her assistance and will absolutely hire her again if ever needed.

Custody
Katie did a great job handling my custody case. She was very professional and knowledgeable of AL child custody laws. She thoroughly explained the process and worked diligently from the beginning to the end. Katie answered all my questions and addressed every concern. She handled herself in court and her hard work resulted in me winning sole legal and physical custody of my child. I am grateful that I hired her to represent me.

A lawyer who cares!
We found Katie after finding out about a custody situation we were facing. It was a very difficult and sensitive situation. In times like these you need somebody to listen and then be your voice. Katie went above and beyond what I have ever seen a lawyer do. She genuinely cared about our situation and the urgency. She was always available to communicate which made things easier for us and something you greatly need when your going through something like this. She was able to help us and get the outcome we prayed for. We would HIGHLY recommend Katie. She is honest, steadfast, a go getter that goes above what most lawyers would. We will never use anybody else and anybody we care about that needs somebody to represent them in their time of need, Katie O’Mailia is exactly the lawyer we will tell them to call. Katie is not only our lawyer but now a part of our family. We can never thank her enough for what she did for us.

Efficient!!
Katie was absolutely a pleasure to work with. During this trying time in my life, she was very understanding yet tough to achieve the results we aimed for. She responded promptly to all emails, and explained everything thoroughly to me, which kept me at ease throughout this process. She wants what is best for the child(ren) and she will fight for you to ensure that your voice is heard. I highly recommend her!

Excellent
She was a blessing to me and my daughter throughout the entire custody case. She is a mother herself and understands the complexity of a parental bond with a child. Katie was easy to talk to and very easy to reach if I ever needed her. She stayed in constant contact with me. I would most definitely recommend her services.

Couldn't be more thankful for Katie. She took my case and responded with professionalism and strategy. She was very good at listening to my concerns and goals and taking them into consideration while still forming a strong case. She always made herself available for questions and went to great lengths to make sure all of the bases were covered. She brings a wonderful mix of care and concern as well as legal knowledge and strategies. I would highly recommend Katie.

Will use in the future and recommend
Used another attorney in the area over the past several years, but stopped getting timely results from them. I was referred to Katie O'Mailia by a family friend, who is also an attorney. She was prompt, personable and very easy to get in touch with. The online interface she uses makes it simple to review documents, send messages and review invoices. I will definitely recommend and use her from now on.

Amazing
Mrs. Omailia represented me recently in a false allegation of DV. With Mrs. Omailia's history of working with DV victims she was quickly able to spot the allegations was bogus and phony and after viewing the evidence she knew it was exaggerated. The case was very aggressive and the opposing counsel was very rude and disrespectful. But Mrs. Omailia never deterred and only fight harder to prove her case. The courts were left in awe how hard Mrs. Omailia fought for her client even when it looked shakey. All in all we walked away with a victory. I recommend Mrs. O mailia. She is a really caring person she fights for her clients with compassion. She doesn't look at it as just a job. She is dedicated to her clients from start to finish.

Katie Cameron O'Mailia - Outstanding Attorney! *****
Katie Cameron O'Mailia handled some legal issues for me related to a Protection from Abuse matter. She handled the matters related to this case with the utmost care. The responses she filed with the court were well prepared, well thought out and contained sound analysis of the appropriate statutes and rulings. She is an ethical person and put in a tremendous amount of thought into the responses she prepared, and the guidance she offered during this process. I would trust her with any legal matters I needed assistance with. She has a tremendous amount of knowledge as it relates to domestic violence issues, and is a victim's advocate. I don't know how I would have made it through this process, or this time in my life without her help and guidance.
