I love Kath!
Ms. Salvi is a tough lawyer, and she fought for me. I am glad to have had her work for me. I was in a minor accident and she grinded through my case and got me a great result!

Kathy is brilliant
Kathy has been working as my lawyer for the past 2 years and I am very impressed with her level of care and work. Since I have hired her firm, Kathy has been relentless to help me. I am glad I was referred to this website to review her, because though I normally do not review, I just want to share to folks that Kathy is an outstanding person and a brilliant lawyer.

Wonderful person and a powerful lawyer
I worked with Salvi and Maher for my case over the last 2 years and I often interacted with Kathy. She is a remarkable person, and she really cares about her clients. She fought for me when it came time. Kathy is a brilliant lawyer, and her team fought for me when I was unable to fund another lawyer willing to.

Brilliant and trustworthy
Kathy has great attention to detail. She handled an automobile accident injury case for me, and I am very happy with my settlement. She always returned my phone calls and answered my questions. Great result.

She's the best!
We came so close to trial, and Kathy did the lion's share of the work: depositions, motions, etc. She knows how to try a case. Salvi & Maher are the best, don't get me wrong, but Kathy doesn't get the glory like the other lawyers there!
