Proficient, caring, excellent attorney.
I highly recommend Ms Craven. She was extremely helpful, patient, and caring of my needs. I have referred her to other friends who are equally as satisfied with her work as myself.

She is A+++++, Amazing Attorney
If you have the honor to meet and retain Kathryn, you are truly blessed! She is the Ruth Bader Ginsburg of Fort Worth, an advocate at heart, with an amazing sense of strategy for complex cases. She helped recover a substantial amount for child support arrears, very well connected in the DFW area.

Estate lawyer
Kathryn was very helpful in guiding us after the death of a family member. Our case was very complex, but she explained everything so we could understand.

Kathryn is an excellent lawyer
I highly recommend Kathryn Craven to anyone needing a capable lawyer. She represented me in a very difficult estate case involving ten heirs. She is very personable and down to earth and makes you very comfortable. She explained everything that would need to be done and how we need to accomplish it. I had to refer back to her frequently and she always replied with sound advice using her many years of experience. I always felt this estate was in very capable hands. A friend accompanied me to the initial interview and he stated, you know I have two brothers who are lawyers but I would not hesitate to use Kathryn's services. I will not hesitate to hire Kathryn with any future needs that might come up
