I will forever be grateful to Cathleen. She stepped in for us and took over a complicated case that our previous lawyer had continuously dropped the ball on. The other parent in this case was breaking the court order and trying to keep the children from us by denying parenting time and phone contact, among other things. Cathleen recognized what was best for the children and didn't write us off because of the complexities in our case. Our previous lawyer told us it would be nearly impossible to hold the other parent accountable because we lived in another state and that we should accept that they will have "control" of the children until they are 18. We didn't believe this had to be the case and neither did Cathleen. Cathleen gave us knowledge of the law and guidance. She fought hard for us and focused on facts and Minnesota statutes in order to help our case in court.
After our horrible experience with our previous attorney, I did not even know that an attorney could be so responsive, and clear and prompt. Soon after hiring Cathleen my stress began to fade away and for the very first time I felt comfortable with where our case was going and knew that we were now in good hands. Cathleen far exceeded my expectations and I could go on and on about how I feel that she "saved us".
Our case is currently under advisement and we are awaiting the judge's decision. I felt compelled to write this positive review for Cathleen, even before we knew the outcome of our case. I am confident that no matter what the outcome is that Cathleen did everything in her power to help us and the children.
Thank you Cathleen, please know that your hard work does not go unnoticed and you are in fact a game-changer and life-saver!

Cathleen was referred to me by a co-worker and she has been such a joy to work with. She answers all questions in layman's terms and really takes the time to understand your situation and explain options. I absolutely recommend her for any family law related issues. Thanks, Justin.

Cathleen represented me in a divorce and custody dispute. During our engagement, she was the most professional, smart, caring, well organized, kind, and communicative lawyer I could have hoped for. She guided me through the process, making sure I was well informed each step of the way. She has deep knowledge of the law and the process, and knows how to get the best results for her clients. In the custody dispute, Cathleen was incredibly focused on my child's needs and best interests, which was so important to me. If anything, she undervalues her services-- her rates are as affordable as they come, and she's worth much more. While I hope not to need her services again, I would recommend Cathleen in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a smart, savvy, kind legal professional.

I highly recommend Cathleen Sykes. During the time she represented me, she kept me informed, was easy to work with, and kept my best interests front and center. Cathleen was also able to explain legal terms in an easy to understand way. She is a talented professional that cares about her clients! I am very satisfied with the results of my case.

I worked with Cathleen in a custody and child support case with my ex partner. My friend had referred Cathleen to me, and I was so lucky I chose her. I was SUPER impressed with her professionalism, her responsiveness, and her knowledge of family law. She also worked quickly and efficiently to minimize my costs. I can't recommend Cathleen enough!

Cathleen helped me immensely through my divorce. She helped me not only on a professional level, but also a personal level. Cathleen kept me informed during the 8 months of the divorce process; she was very knowledgeable, and always available. Working on the sliding fee scale was a huge help as well. I would highly reccomend Cathleen.
