Exceptional!!!
Michael Catt is THE attorney you want! My husband and I hired Michael for our custody case. Michael demonstrates what is right, what is true, and what is just. Never straying from that! He’s a man of Faith and true, undeniable GRIT! Because Michael is all those things and so much more, we would recommend him to anyone in need of a family law attorney. Thank you Michael for doing such an amazing job with our case. Also, I wanted to thank his paralegal, Ms. Deb. Michael and his team are the BEST!!!!

Family Custody Case
First i want to say, i was a father trying to get full custody of my 9 year old son. Michael was referred to us by another respected attorney that was retiring, when i asked that attorney who would you have represent you, without hesitation he said Michael Catt. Throughout our process Michael has always been responsive, friendly, courteous and truthful. In court, Michael is factual and is very prepared for the case. Hands down Michael Catt in my opinion is the best attorney in Orange County. Michael is the real deal and his paralegal Deb is on top of everything. As a father to get full custody of my son was a dream and Michael made it our reality. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts, Micheal you changed our lives forever!!!!

Extremely impressed
I contacted his office and I quickly received a call back that afternoon. By the next day I was talking directly with Michael Catt. I live out of town and needed guidance on property title transfer following the death of my elderly mother. He clearly explained what I needed to do. He refused payment for our call. He said it was consultation. Trust me, if I (or my Orange TX family members) ever need an attorney in the area, I will hire Mr. Catt.

Excellent Attorney
Mr Catt helped me with the custody of my granddaughter. She other wise would have been raised in a drug house with a addict mother! He without hesitation stepped up and gave me the best council any one could ever hope for even when my pockets were empty. He is a very spiritual man and knows the value of family. It's been 5 yrs now and my grand daughter has been safe and she is well adjust in life. I don't know where she'd be now if it wasn't for Mr Catt. I am and will always be grateful to him. Without a doubt I would recommend him for your legal needs! Thank you Mr Catt for stepping up and helping us when you really didn't have Too❤️ Forever grateful Janie Stanley

Highly recommended family attorney!
Michael has been my attorney for about twelve years now. I have used him several times over the years for various family issues. I've been very pleased with him each time. He also always returns phone calls quickly & even if it's after hours. I highly recommend him.

Amazing Experience
We reached out to Michael to represent our family as we were nearing the end of a sibling foster placement and adoption was looking to be a possible option for us. Michael is very compassionate and took time to understand all the facts surrounding our case and ensured our voice was heard in proceedings. Michael handled the processing of the adoption and it could not have gone any smoother. If you are looking for an attorney who will truly take the time to understand your need and work wholeheartedly to address it, then Michael is just the attorney for you. He was not only our voice in the legal system, but also someone we completely trusted and whose opinion we value greatly.

Knowledgeable, Honest, and Caring
Mr. Catt has many years of experience practicing law in Orange County. He has a great reputation and is well known in the community. Therefore, I decided to contact him when I needed assistance with a family law matter. His assistant was very friendly and helpful, and I was able to schedule an appointment within days with no hassle. Mr. Catt was thoroughly professional, and he struck me as being honest and no-nonsense. He read my existing legal documents and gave me helpful advice. I highly recommend.

I was represented by Mr. Catt
Corporate non-compete lawsuits can be long and arduous situations. Frankly, they are zero fun. Your ability to work during this time can be impeded, as you suddenly find yourself in a legal maze with two companies fighting with each other over your book of business. I found myself in the exact situation a few years back, and hired Mr. Catt as my attorney. From our first phone call, until the last deposition, he and I were together for over a year in this case. Often in deposition rooms filled with big law firm attorneys on the opposite side of the table , I always felt that Mr. Catt was the smartest guy in the room. Ultimately, I prevailed and was able to get back to my career and normalcy resumed. I highly recommend Mr. Catt. His bedside manner is top notch, and he made it as comfortable as possible. He didn't try to wow me with legalese, he always gave it to me straight, so that I never wondered where I stood in the proceedings. I hope you don't need an attorney, but If you do, Mr. Catt is an excellent option.

Dedicated to justice
I recently had some serious legal issues and was in need of a great defense. It didn't take me but a few seconds to realize Mr. Catt would be the best attorney for the cause. His dedication to the legal system and effort put forth to my defense was far and above more than I expected. I would definitely recommend this counselor to anyone else!!

Mr. Catt is a professional and knowledgeable and compassionate lawyer.
Mr. Catt, in my opinion, is a great lawyer because he listens to clients and has their best interest at heart. His family is his top priority and this shows me that his values coincide with mine. He invested more than his skill and time to my problems he gave his understanding and compassion. And his passion to make sure my children were protected is what I admire the most. He was a phone call away when I was at the end of my rope hanging on for dear life. I would recommend him to anyone needing a professional and knowledgeable and compassionate lawyer.

Not recommend
Not recommend for a man with a lying ex wife . He will drag you along not do what’s important to you and do things that hides the bad that the wife is doing without exposing the truth to the judge.
