About Kathy

Learn Kathy’s areas of practice.

I moved to McKinney, Texas in 2003 when I married a Texan. My husband and I have 9 children and 7 grandchildren between us. I am active in my church. I have been a lawyer for over 20 years and have practiced family law exclusively for most of that time. I have tried hundreds of jury trials and thousands of bench trials. I provide competent straight-forward representation and can be counted on to tell it like it is. I feel a huge responsibility to each and every client. Feel free to call for a telephone or office consultation. I would be happy to meet with you.

Highly Recommend
Attorney Kathy Erickson is a professional on every level. She is fair, upfront, honest and sincere. She handled my case with the highest concern for myself and my child. Her knowledge about the legal system is unparalleled and her compassion and understanding for her clients is profound. It's rare to find a lawyer who not only represents you well, but has a natural ability to connect with you on a personal level. That understanding is crucial in achieving the best outcome possible for all involved.

Wise counselor. Excellent judge of character. Fierce defender of children.
Kathy Erickson's experience with problematic personalities helped me confirm my suspicions that I had married a covert and manipulative abuser. She accurately predicted my ex's behaviors during the divorce process and helped me navigate a minefield of control tactics and protect my children. Kathy's investigative and documentation skills ultimately helped me expose my ex's true character to the court. I highly recommend her to anyone who is trying to defend their children from an abusive parent.

Simply the best!
After three and a half years with a large family law firm and my ex spouse successfully getting continuance after continuance I was referred to Kathy. What a blessing! She watched over me like a mother bear over her cub. I simply couldn’t be happier with her handling of my case and it’s ultimate outcome! Exceptionally strong work! I highly recommend Kathy!

Working with Kathy through my divorce was a great decision! I definitely recommend her for divorce with children.
Working with Kathy and her assistant Annie through my divorce was a seamless process. I spoke with Annie to get a quote and immediately felt safe, secure, and supported. I knew right away that Kathy was the attorney for me. Her background experience, especially with a focus on children and families, made me confident that she knew what she was doing and would give the advice that would help provide a stable environment for my children through the divorce process and the years after. She was very thorough getting all my information and recognizing certain aspects of the divorce decisions that we had not talked about yet. Our divorce was mostly simple and amicable with no mediation involvement. With no complications arising, Kathy was able to stay within the retainer fee estimation that I paid up front. I did not have access to tons of money, so she made sure I knew how to keep costs down when working with her. I can honestly say that having Kathy file our divorce was a decision well worth the money. I feel confident that our divorce agreement was fair and I was allotted all I was entitled to according to state divorce laws. I definitely recommend Kathy to anyone who is going through a divorce.

I recommend Kathy Erickson
I am 100% satisfied!! I first met Kathy and her staff a little over a year ago for the divorce of my 27 year marriage. Kathy was a voice of logic, experience and comfort for me. As I listened to Kathy's advice and direction, she helped me organize and shape my future. I continue to use her services today, I trust and recommend her to everyone!

Divorce & Separation advice session
The lawyer that was recommended called me within 30 seconds of my request being made. I was really pleasantly surprised how fast she contacted me AND how fast she grasped my problem and was ready to go to work helping me. I can't say enough of how happy I am that I tried your service.

Kathy Jane Erickson is AWESOME!
I was assisted by Kathy Jane Erickson for my divorce & child custody case and hands down, Kathy is one of the most competent and understanding attorneys, I have ever dealt with. In fact, I used another attorney prior to meeting with Kathy, and they charged 3X the hourly rate that Kathy did, and their services were below par compared to Kathy. I would highly recommend Kathy for any services needing her expertise.

Lowering or cancelling spouse support
Ms. Erickson contacted me so fast that I had hardly entered the information in to ask for a lawyer and my phone was ringing with her on it. She was very in depth in her questions and answers and called me back the next day with advice after she checked on my situation. I am EXTREMELY pleased with how knowledgeable, polite and efficient she was in answering my question. with one phone call, she saved me over $300.00 a month. IF I end up going to court over this matter in the future, I plan on retaining Ms. Erickson. This was the BEST $40 bucks I have spent in many many years. Thank you AVVO and Ms. Erickson

child custody
After talking to Kathy for the 1st time, I was able to put my fears about choosing the wrong attorney to rest. Being from Oklahoma & having to fight in Texas court over custody of my 3 step children was scary. Not knowing anyone that could recommend me someone in the McKinney area, I relied on Avvo. Kathy was a blessing. She made us feel like we were her only clients. From recommending us another attorney for my husband's side to holding my grandmother's hand on her case, Kathy was more than i could've asked for. I highly recommend Kathy!

Outstanding child custody lawyer
Kathy is without doubt one of the most competent, knowledgeable, professional, trustworthy and capable lawyers that you will ever find. She truly cares about her clients and their needs. Her work ethic is outstanding. There just are not enough words in the English language to describe what a truly wonderful lawyer she is.

I am a big fan of Kathy Erickson
I was in a really poor emotional place going through my divorce. Kathy was not only a very professional lawyer, but also someone that really made me feel at ease with what was happening. We were able to get everything complete within 70 days and the process was fairly smooth for me. Honestly, I don't know what to say other than she did a great job. I would recommend her to anyone for divorce attorney services.

Kathy Erickson
Ms. Erickson has handled my specific case since 2009. She is a very hands on attorney and immersed herself in my case utilizing her resources and my resources. Each time I have had to go back to court I feel confident because her record keeping and her recall are outstanding and this saves time in preparing my case. Her staff is very knowledgeable and answered all my concerns in a timely manner.

Kathy is incredible.
I cannot say enough to express how grateful I am that I had Kathy represent me in my divorce case. She is extremely good at what she does and also listened to me and was sympathetic to my feelings. She was responsive, prepared, and has integrity. Her assistant Annie is great too.

Child Custody Case
Kathy is a professional. She listens carefully to your concerns and uses the information provided to build a winning case. She helped me win a case against my ex-husband who was sueing me for custody of our son. Her rates are fair and she uses only the funds she needs to work the case. She will not promise the outcome, but will do her best to present a winning case and leave the rest to the judge.
