About Catherine

Learn Catherine’s areas of practice.

Attorney Catherine Eaton is Tennessee and Florida Bar licensed attorney and a Certified Family Mediator, which allows Catherine to offer a wide selection of services to prospective clients. However, Catherine is much more than a practicing attorney, she has also experienced both the joy and hardships of raising three children as a single mother. This experience allows Catherine to represent clients with an understanding that few attorneys have, knowing firsthand the difficulties surrounding divorce and parenting.

One of the many benefits of pursuing mediation and collaborative law over litigation is the protection of you and your family's privacy.

Collaborative law is a way to resolve the issues that arise when you dissolve a marriage without court intervention into the settlement terms. Collaborative law can produce a settlement agreement that is tailored much better to the unique circumstances of the parties and their children.

Mediation is the voluntary process of negotiating a settlement to issues between two parties. Mediation is used in family law as an alternative dispute resolution process.

There are several benefits and advantages to agreeing to mediate your family law case including:

  • Privacy
  • Cost
  • Time
  • Tailored Agreements
  • Preservation of Relationships
  • Informal Proceedings
