Cathy Hale was recommended to me at a time when I needed additional help and support after years of legal battles in a custody case. She was knowledgeable, calm and was able to look at the case quickly and precisely, and give the advice that we needed.

Cathy Herrington Hale represented me in a custody case against my ex-husband. My ex-husband was seeking custody of my two daughters who are 3 and 6 years old. As you can imagine, to go through litigation is a very stressful experience and as the average citizen I knew very little about how the legal process worked. My case was decided by a jury and I am so thankful that I was able to keep my girls.
Cathy is not only an AMAZING lawyer but also a fantastic person. She is the type of lawyer that is very passionate about her job and truly cares about you as a client. Cathy has a perfect mix of being an outstanding and knowledgeable lawyer and the type of human being that really cares about you and your family. She definitely takes the time to know you really well and that type of bonding with your lawyer is something that plays to your advantage in court. To hire Cathy has been the best decision I have ever made and I will always thank God for meeting her. When Cathy decides to take your case is to WIN.
Something that differentiates Cathy from other lawyers is her ability to start trial with a strategy and depending on how trial is evolving, adjust certain things to make sure you are maximizing your chances of winning. This is a strength that is very difficult to find among lawyers. Cathy is very articulate, has an inspirational speech and she connects very well with the jury. The jurors that decided our case loved her and when she did the closing arguments you could see in the eyes of the jurors that they were with us.
I highly recommend Cathy. Please spend the time to hire the right lawyer for your case. Lawyers are a decisive factor for maximizing your chances of winning.
Cathy is not only my lawyer for life but also a friend for a life.

Cathy Herrington is a brilliant attorney who is well-respected in the legal community. She is a tenacious, principled, smart advocate for her clients. She has the highest ethics, whether interacting with clients, courts, or opposing counsel. I have referred dozens of clients to her and have always gotten rave reviews about how well-represented they were by Cathy. She is the kind of lawyer that everyone wishes they had -- or wishes they were.
