Incredible Lawyer
Kitty has been nothing short of amazing. Super down to earth and understanding. Great sense of humor and at no time did she make me feel like anything but her top priority. I made a pretty big mistake, and Kitty was incredible in every aspect of helping me resolve it. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Kitty cares about her clients
Kitty helped me survive the worst period of my life. The process took longer than anticipated, but she didn't settle for less than the best possible outcome. She remained steadfast in her advocacy for me for over 2 years, she got a good result for my case, and most importantly, she is kind and thoughtful towards her clients. I hope to never have the need for a defense attorney again, but if I ever do, she will be my first call. Thank you so much Kitty!

I had the pleasure of witnessing Kitty Liell at Liell & McNeil Attorneys advocate for a beloved family member, and I couldn't be more pleased with the exceptional service this individual received. From start to finish, Kitty demonstrated high professionalism, sophistication, expertise, and dedication, setting her apart from other firms. Kitty's deep knowledge of the law and her ability to communicate complex legal matters in a clear and understandable manner was impressive. She took the time to listen to their concerns, thoroughly explained their options, and guided them through the legal process promptly with empathy and patience. What truly stood out to me was Kitty's unwavering commitment to achieving the best possible outcome for their case. She was diligent, responsive, and kept them informed every step of the way. We always felt their case was a priority, providing us peace of mind during an extremely difficult and challenging time. Additionally, Kitty's attention to detail and her strategic approach were instrumental in resolving their legal matter successfully. Her dedication to her clients' needs is evident in every interaction.

Kitty is THE BEST!!
My life got turned upside down, something my family and I were not prepared for. Knowing Kitty's reputation in town, we consulted her first for advice. Little did I know that false allegations would ensue and I would be falsely charged for actions, that I did not commit. I had another attorney at the time, that tried to handle my divorce and criminal side. Unfortunately, I felt and came to find out they weren't not representing me, as they should. Our gut instinct was to "call Kitty". It was the best decision we had ever made! She took the case and ran with it, she is so meticulous and thorough, she knew exactly what to do. She has been so amazing for us, every step of the way. She shed light and truth into the situation and turned the case for us! We couldn't have done it without her and her team. She understood what was happening and cared for the person I was, she stood up for me. She gave me a voice and stood up for the truth and the facts of the case. She treated me like I was family. I felt she was so trustworthy and made me feel confident and comfortable with her, even though we were in such a horrible situation. She is respected in the field and that's because of who she is and how she practices. She is so smart, and strategic with her actions of the case, and she works for you. I have seen my share of lawyers in the last 2 years and I can tell you without a doubt, that Kitty is the BEST lawyer, I have ever had and witnessed practice. Everyone needs a "Call Kitty" on their side. She is hands down THE BEST! I can't thank her enough for what she was able to do and how she represented me and my family! She gave me the voice we needed, and fought for what was right. I am so thankful and grateful for her expertise and the amazing person she is.

A Smart, Optimistic, and Caring Lawyer
Kitty Liell saved me from being punished by Indiana University for a crime I did not commit. I would recommend her any day to anyone who struggles with similar circumstances. Her love and care for her clients are evident in the hard work and consideration that she puts into your case. I could not be more grateful for her help. Without Katharine Liell, my life as I know it and my dreams as I imagine them would’ve been pulled out from under my feet. With her help, I am now able to continue on in my education, and someday, to earn my own career in law.

Smart, effective and aggressive
We hired Mrs Liell for 2 criminal cases against our son. She was very easy to work with, very fast at getting back with him and honest about her results. She is very personable and I truly felt she cared about him and his outcome.

Kitty is an AMAZING lawyer. She lifted the weight off of my shoulders throughout the process which was such a relief. She was so compassionate and made sure to inform me every step of the way. The second I spoke to Kitty I knew she would work so hard to protect me and hear me out. She really is the best and her support helped me feel like myself again.

Grateful client
We were so fortunate to be referred to Kitty when our son ran into legal trouble. The situation was traumatic for all of us but Kitty’s knowledge of the law and all the local players helped so much. She is extremely knowledgeable about the law and also compassionate to the client and family involved. Cannot recommend Kitty highly enough!

5 stars are not enough. She. Is. The. Best.
I see only 5 star reviews; that adds up. Til I die, I will never forget the feeling when I got the call from Katharine telling me that my case was dismissed. If you are innocent and need the absolute best legal defense, please listen to me- you need to contact Katharine Liell. From the moment I contacted her, she was unbelievably competent, professional, and understanding. She methodically worked through every aspect of my case, along with her team of private investigators and consultants (all of which are also top notch), and unraveled all of the inconsistencies and untrue allegations. I do not want to imagine how my case would have gone if I had not chosen Katharine to represent me.

Best of the Best
Kitty is the best lawyer you can get in Indiana. I was fortunate enough to get Kitty as my lawyer. I was wrongfully accused of something i have not done. Kitty worked hard, she dedicated all of her time to my case and most importantly Kitty always checked up with me. In the end, Kitty got the results that i have dreamed of. If anyone is looking for a Lawyer do not hesitate to hire Katharine LieLL because she is the best and will always looks after her clients.

Great Results
My son used Kitty to get an incident on his record expunged. Kitty did a great job. She was timely and kept us informed during the process. The results were perfect.

One of the Best
We were fortunate enough to connect with Ms. Liell when one of our family members was charged with a crime they did not commit. As we set out to defend them and prove their innocence, Kitty was fantastic. She was compassionate with our family as we faced this incredibly scary situation, and was a tenacious fighter for justice. She is intelligent, detail oriented and worked extremely hard to get the charges dropped. Words cannot describe how highly we think Kitty and we would recommend her for any criminal defense you may need.

Effective and Reliable
Not only did Kitty help me get a result that I am more than happy with, but she took the time to comfort me throughout the process (I was quite nervous). Beyond the case itself, she was always patient with me when I had questions and helped me with my personal goals that I was worried the case might affect. Regarding the case itself, she was able to get an outcome that other Lawyers I consulted deemed unlikely.

Very proactive to resolve clerical hiccup
Katherine performed an expungement, but the courts missed a file. She was very aggressive to resolve the issue before my deadline, even though she had already been paid a flat fee up front. She seems like she has solid connections with the courts, and I would highly recommend.

Outstanding lawyer
Hi hired Kitty to represent my daughter who decided to make the not so smart decision to go swimming in a public pool after hours and was charged with trespass. This was especially problematic because my daughter had just been accepted to law school and we were worried this charge could come back to haunt her. Within hours of my call to Kitty, she was able to get the matter dismissed. Whew!! Thanks so much Kitty!
