Awesome Law Practice
Kathy and Noel were amazing throughout the painful process of my divorce. They made something that was incredibly stressful a little less so and communicated with me early and often throughout the process. Often times attorneys have reputations for not returning calls or keeping you in the loop---not the case here. Also unlike other law offices walking into Everette Law, while always very professional, felt more like I was dropping by to talk with a couple of friends. Not stuffy and once the legal talk was over we always moved on to debating the finer points of SEC football etc. I consider Kathy and Noel friends and could not recommend their services more.

Wonderful lawyer
Choosing Kathy as my lawyer was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The first time we spoke she listened, asked questions, and really took the time to get to know both me and my situation. She was compassionate and hardworking, and went above and beyond in order to make such a difficult life experience as easy and pain free for me as possible. She always kept my best interest in mind, and I always knew I could trust her to get the job done. Kathy, and also Noel, are wonderful people. I could never thank them enough for not only representing me, but also for giving me constant peace of mind that everything was going to work out. I would highly recommend Everette Law to anyone and everyone.

Mr. Thomas Courtney Mt. Juliet, Tn
Kathy was awesome handling my very difficult custody battle. She took over, explained the options, developed a plan of action to get what was the best for my kids and did so utilizing her knowledge and experience to do so. She was available and very personable as was her staff with any answers to a ton of questions we had. I would highly recommend Kathy and her staff to anyone I know who is dealing with any family legal matter. We are very grateful she came highly recommended by a friend.

Great Family Attorney
Ms. Everett is such a blessing to our family. With her, we were able to gain full custody of my stepdaughter. She was very nice, friendly, and caring. I really appreciate and enjoyed working with Ms Everette. I would refer everyone I know in need of her services to hire her. She's very reasonable in price and worth it . Thanks again

Feeling blessed
I hired Ms. Everette for a consultation on a matter relating to a trust I thought I needed set up for a settlement I received after reading smoe of the things on avvo. I am so thankful I found her because she was straight up with me and kept me from wasting a bunch of money creating a trust it turned out the amount was low enough I was better off just spending the money on my family than on legal fees. I don't know anything about that stuff and she helped explain it and I am going to use her to do my will.

LOVE HER!
Kathy Everette not only did an excellent job on my divorce, I feel that I have found a friend. She gave me realistic expectations and always delivered more than she promised. She took my case seriously and didn't mind taking time to answer my questions. Her billing was more than fair.

Great attorney!
Ms. Everette was my attorney in my child custody case. She helped me not only get the times and days that I asked for, she also helped me with getting my child support set up. She fought to get the right amount vs what my child's father wanted to pay. I would absolutely recommend this attorney for not only divorce but any child custody/support issue.
