Kate is awesome! Kate gets to know her clients on a more personal level. She is actively involved in your case and makes sure she is doing everything she can to get what you want. Kate has helped me with some recents issues that have come about since my divorce and I am so happy I hired her. My fiance has been using her with his divorce and I only wish I could have had her during my divorce. I love that I can call Kate or write Kate an email and withing a day she has responded to me. My last lawyer was so difficult to communicate with. She has definitely helped take the stress off my shoulders. When you meet Kate you can tell she is very passionate about her job and she loves what she does. Kate makes sure her clients are happy and being taken care of, rather than making sure she is making the most money off them she can. My fiance and I have nothing but good things to say about Kate. I wish I was able to hire Kate when I was going through my divorce. She is a fighter! She doesn't back down or let other lawyers intimidate her. She will stick by your side until the end. You know after your first conversation with her that you are getting a great quality lawyer who will work hard for you! I can't thank Kate enough for everything she has done for me and continues to do for me. Kate will not let you down!

It's hard to put into words just how much Kate has helped me through a very difficult situation. I have twins and I could've been totally cut out of their lives, had it not been for Kate.
It started with our first phone consultation. My twins weren't even born yet but I knew I had to find out my legal options and seek legal help. Kate answered and spoke with me for over 30 minutes, for free, listening to me explain my situation and what I was facing.
Kate expressed empathy and understood my frustrations. Then after my kids were born, Kate was diligent making sure the paternity (DNA) testing was done prior to any child support being discussed. Then at mediation, Kate sat with me through the entire 8 hour ordeal, while the opponent's attorney didn't even bother to show up. It meant a lot to me that Kate was there with me and she helped me get the most out of the settlement agreement.
Then when their mom violated that agreement, Kate was there to pursue the contempt and she was able to successfully prove it in court. During cross-exam, Kate was aggressive and really laid out all the facts before the judge. This entire process has taken over 2 years but Kate has been there literally every step of the way.
As of today, I get consistent parenting time with my twins and I contribute that to having Kate as my legal advocate. Her knowledge, advice and legal guidance has been invaluable. Kate and her staff were always friendly when I called or came into the office. If I had a billing question, I got a full explanation and breakdown with patience and a positive attitude.
Kate and her staff have been awesome to deal with through a very difficult and frustrating circumstance.

Kate has been working with me on my divorce since November 2012. She has always been one step ahead of me and looking out for my best interest. Kate has been willing & encouraging to help me fight for what I want. It's harder for guys to fight for what they want in a divorce, but Kate has helped me keep my head up. Kate is confident and very knowledgeable. I've never had to deal with lawyers before, but I know my case is in the right hands with Kate. You don't have to worry about not hearing from your attorney for 2 weeks with Kate; she makes you feel at ease by always keeping you in the loop. Kate is very personable and gets to know you as a person instead of making you feel like just another paying client that she gets to make money off. All around Kate is a great person and I am so glad I found her.
