Long distance legal affair.
I retained Kathryn's firm to look into sealing an old criminal misdemeanor conviction for driving on a suspended license when I lived in Chicago years ago. I'm home in New York now so I had a phone consult during which I realized that my case was being approached as a criminal matter and not a simple traffic violation which, oddly, put me at ease. Everyone at the firm is extremely competent, pleasant to talk to and worked diligently to bring my case to a satisfactory close. Just as important is that my calls were returned and emails responded to in appropriate time and fees were always clearly explained with easy to read monthly statements. They're a good bunch, I wouldn't hesitate to refer friends and family.

Excellent Service
I was truly blessed in finding Kathryn L. Harry & Associates, P.C. I was pulled over in Naperville, IL and given a ticket for driving 67mph in a 60 mph speed zone. I've never had a ticket since obtaining my Class A Commercial Drivers License (CDL) in 2015, this was a first. Without Ms Kathryn's representation, this ticket would've remained on my driving record and entire year with 21 points on my CSA score as well as adding 14 points to the company I am contracted under (I am an independent contractor). I am so pleased with the results! The speeding ticket was amended to a ticket of parking improperly by a curb, a ticket that does not reflect on my driving record, thus, no CSA scores against me or the company I'm contracted with! Her office even took it a step further and had the court cost and parking ticket reduced as well! I am truly pleased with the results as it kept my driving record in it's original position, CLEAN. The company I contract with is very pleased as well. Thank you Kathryn L. Harry & Associates, P.C. for keeping me in good standing with the company as well. I recommend Kathryn L. Harry & Associates, P.C. to anyone reading this review, to all of my friends, family, and fellow Professional Drivers, anyone in need of "GOOD" representation, Kathryn L. Harry & Associates, P.C. is the way to go. Again, Thank you Kathryn L. Harry & Associates, P.C. for a job well done. Sincerely yours, Tanaka TAN~A~KA TA~NA~KA LOGISTICS, LLC

Big help in little time
Karthryn was a great asset to me. I came to her on very short notice (firday afternoon had to be in court on monday). I couldn't even be in the state as I lived in Connecticut and had a court apperance here on the same day. She work thoughout the weekend to put my case together for monday. She kept me informed as soon as she knew something she relayed the information directly to me. She helped get my son back home in my arms. She worked so diligently. She worked with my lawyer here in Connecticut in incredibly quick fashion. I would highly recommened Kathryn to anyone looking for a well knowledged, extremely trustworthy, and responsible lawyer.

Excellent Caring Attorney
I would highly recommend Ms. Harry and have already done so on several occasions. She is a hard working compassionate attorney who will champion for her clients. Her honesty and trustworthiness are the qualities one needs when consulting a lawyer which is usually during an emotional stressful time. Cudos to Ms. Harry!!

Criminal defense Attorney | May 12
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Kathryn is one of the best attorneys I have worked with (and against) in my 19 years as a member of the Illinois Bar. I first met Kathryn when I was an Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney. She was my opponent. I learned quickly that Kathryn is adeft top-notch attorney with razor-sharp wit and unmatched courtroom presence. These skills become immediately obvious to any attorney or judge that encounters Kathryn in the courtroom, hearing room, or across the negotiation table. What may not be as obvious, but is equally important, is Kathryn’s talent for doggedly advocating for her client’s without making enemies. I remember as an Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney, I was inclined to give Kathryn’s clients the best consideration simply because of the force of her personality – putting aside her trial skills and other qualities. When I left the Prosecutor’s Office I wanted to work for her – specifically. Now I do. I give Kathryn my very highest recommendation."

Family Attorney | Mar 13
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. I have worked with Kathryn as opposing counsel on a matter and she has handled the matter very professionally. She has represented her client's position well, fighting for her client's rights when necessary. Yet she has been reasonable in presenting her client's position either in court or in discussions with opposing cousnel, so that the parties can reach a settlement on as many issues as possible. She acts in the best interest of her client and attempts to resolve issues through settlement negotiation but is not afraid to litigate issues that cannot be resolved. She also takes her client's concerns very seriously, bringing them to the attention of the court or opposing counsel when necessary. She is also very mindful of the emotional and financial toll that family law or divorce disputes have on the parties involved and makes an effort to minimize the impact of these diputes on her client. I highly recommend Kathryn"
