Katilyn Copi is a top tier attorney!
She is professional, attentive, and her constant detailed communication was key during my divorce proceedings. She responds to emails and phone calls in a timely manner and always kept me abreast of the status of proceedings. I never felt like I was unaware or uneducated with anything related to my case which speaks volumes about her attentiveness and communication with her clients. Trust me when I say if your attorney doesn’t have time to communicate with you, how do they have time to work on your case? She will never make promises for anything out of her control but will provide 100% effort to gain you a fair outcome. My case dragged on for much longer than it ever needed to be, due to multiple delay tactics from my ex. Kaitlyn spent countless hours preparing my case and I was confident she had every ounce of evidence required to contest the items my ex would not budge on. In the end, she used maybe 10% of it, because we had an unexpected moment in court, where opposing counsels own witness incriminated my ex = win for me. Kaitlyn, thank you VERY much for your superb representation! If I ever am asked for a referral to a divorce lawyer, I guarantee, it will be Kaitlyn Copi’s name I give out each and every time!

Divorce
I had a great experience with Mrs. Copi as my attorney. She was very professional, walked me through the divorce process and and proceedings. Mrs. Copi took the time to explain the significance of small details that I otherwise over looked. I’m addition she was very responsive and would follow up with things that were pending. She provided details on my case and gave me options to know what is best for my situation. She knew what my main concerns were with my case and kept those in mind when preparing the documents. I would recommend Mrs. Kaitlyn Copi law office to anyone in need of a divorce attorney. She really goes the extra mile for her clients.

Exactly who I needed!
Kaity is a pitbull when it comes to her clients and her willingness to protect them. She’s extremely thorough and was also a listening ear and voice of reason through one of the hardest times in my life. Would recommend her to anyone looking for someone who will truly have their best interests in mind!

Kaitlyn is amazing
I could not have asked for a better lawyer then Kaitlyn. She intelligent, down to earth, no none sense, and great at what she’s does. I knew I was in for a rough case and she handed all the craziness like a constant professional. She always made time for me when I called or would call back the same day. Even if she is on her day off and you get slapped with an emergency order of what ever she has an amazing team behind her that will get ahold of her for you and get all your questions answered. Arielle Barbosa is amazing as well. That’s a true story because it happened to me. So if your looking for a lawyer that is smart, genuine, kind, easy to understand, down to earth, no nonsense, butt kicker, and you really want a shot to get what you feel is right for your family then 1000% Kaitlyn is your kinda of lawyer trust me. Thank you again for all that you did Kaitlyn your amazing

Highly recommend
I cannot thank Kaitlyn enough for her compassion for my daughter and her professionalism during our custody case. She connected easily with our teenage daughter and immediately put her at ease. For that I will always be grateful. She was fair and kept my daughters best interests in mind at all times.

The Ultimate and Professional Communicator.
Kaitlyn truly possess the ultimate communication skills that you cannot just teach. That is; "she listens". Great communicators are great listeners! Her patience level is so great to work with as she stops and listens to her clients and then explains at a level where every thing is crystal clear. There will be nothing left to doubt. Truly not just a lawyer you can trust during at difficult time but a person that you can trust and truly understands the importance of communicating and making sure no stone is un-turned, It is just always about a lawyer with knowledge as a profession. It is also about communication and understanding. That is Kaitlyn! She is working for her clients and she understands her clients are real people. This is very comforting.

WONDERFUL!
Ms. Worst is simply lovely! You are going through such a horrible time, yet Ms. Worst goes out of her way to make you feel respected, understood and listened to. She makes you feel like you matter, while showing respect to the opposing side as well. She is an absolutely professional and patient lawyer. I am so grateful I found her and her wonderful office.

Very thankful!
My husband and I contacted Kaitlyn's office when my husband began to have issues with the very vague joint parenting time agreement he had with his ex-wife. We wanted a court-order that laid out which holidays each of us got and a set in stone 50/50 visitation agreement. Kaitlyn was able to get us everything we wanted and did so within a year. We felt that Kaitlyn used our time and money with care.

Fantastic & Professional Lawyer
Kaitlyn was wonderful. She resolved my issue quickly & professionally without having to step into a courtroom. She was patient working with me. Especially when I first contacted her when I was quite visibly upset.

Outstanding Attorney
Ms. Worst is an extremely professional, competent, honest, and caring attorney who knows her way around the courtroom. From my initial phone call, she took the time to educate me on my options and was upfront and honest about how things may, or may not, play out. She was extremely thorough during our consultation and responded promptly when I had a question or concern about my case. When our court day arrived, I was incredibly nervous, but Ms. Worst was reassuring and handled everything with the other party and the judge very respectfully. I feel that our case was successful specifically because Ms. Worst is an outstanding attorney and advocate for her clients. I highly recommend Ms. Worst and would absolutely hire her again should the situation arise.

Excellent Attorney
I hired Kaitlyn for post-divorce proceedings and couldn't be happier. Very professional, very knowledgeable, and an excellent communicator - whether through email or over the phone, she was always quick to respond, making a stressful situation much easier. It was certainly a pleasure to have Kaitlyn and her team represent me - I would highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking a very knowledgeable lawyer for their case, and I would not hesitate to hire her again.
