Grateful Parent - Katie Marie Law is a Lifesaver!
I cannot emphasize enough how grateful I am for Katie Marie Law and her incredible team. I have had the privilege of working with them not once but twice, and both times they have proven to be true professionals and, quite literally, life savers. Katie's dedication to securing both sole legal and physical custody of my children was unparalleled. The safety and well-being of my kids were at stake, and Katie and her team rose to the occasion with unwavering commitment. Their expertise and tireless efforts ensured a successful outcome, giving me the peace of mind that my children are safe and secure. The level of support provided by Katie and her team goes beyond what words can express. They invested significant time and energy into my family's case, demonstrating a genuine concern for the well-being of my children. In what is undoubtedly one of the scariest times any parent can face, Katie and her team were not only professional but also remarkably patient and reassuring. I would never consider going anywhere else for legal representation involving my children. Katie Marie Law has earned my trust and respect through her exceptional legal skills and genuine compassion for her clients. If you are facing a custody battle and want the best for your kids, I wholeheartedly recommend Katie. She is more than an attorney; she is a guardian for the well-being of your family. Thank you, Katie, for being a true advocate and ensuring the safety of my children. Your dedication has made a profound impact on our lives, and we are forever grateful.

Willing to fight as hard as you are!
Katie Marie Law was phenomenal to work with. Katie and her team were willing to work just as hard as we were during our court case. The pandemic slowed some progress down, but Katie continued to advocate for us and push our case through the correct channels. My husband and I were walked through every step of the process and Katie presented our case professionally to the judge. We loved every minute of working with Katie and her team.

Exceptional Service
I hired Katie to represent me in my divorce, and I knew I was in good hands within the first few minutes of my initial consultation. She was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain the process an answer all of my questions. Katie and her staff were very professional and always responsive to any questions or concerns I had. Working with them helped put my mind at ease during what was a very difficult situation for me personally. I would highly recommend Katie for anyone in need of legal services.

Amazing
I hired Katie and her team to tackle a fairly complicated divorce. I am currently serving in the military and am stationed overseas, so is my (ex) husband. With all the challenges that came about, I felt completely at ease knowing Katie Marie Law had it covered. I had contacted many lawyers before and none seemed to be nearly as helpful or willing to take on the challenge as Katie Marie Law, even from just the consultation! She always knew exactly what to do and I felt confident with my divorce in her hands. 10/10 would recommend!

Stellar Divorce Counsel
Katie Baluha is an outstanding lawyer and her staff provided professional and timely service throughout my divorce. My settlement case took about a year and was complicated due to multiple, long standing co-mingled assets. Katie was consistent: honest, prepared, and accessible. She provided options and proactively initiated negotiations to garner strong results. Katie is smart, committed and genuine. She helped guide me through a very difficult time with care, understanding and a drive to do her very best. Thanks!
