As a strong litigator, Ivy League law school graduate, and specialist in high conflict and complex family law matters, Kaitlyn Wright is skilled at resolving civil litigation issues with creative and well-reasoned solutions.
In family law, Kaitlyn has successfully litigated and resolved complex international jurisdictional matters, cases with high asset multimillion-dollar estates and companies, and hotly contested child custody cases. She also has a 100% success rate in obtaining awards of attorney fees when the case calls for it. Utilizing her extensive experience in federal and state law, Kaitlyn persuades the Court by implementing careful strategy and detail-oriented advocacy. Among other cases, she has successfully resolved matters that include dependency and neglect, foster home placement, drug and alcohol addiction, domestic violence, civil and criminal protection orders, and intricate cultural nuances. Additionally, in the special education context, Kaitlyn has forged settlements upwards of $300,000 for private school placements, represented clients before the First Circuit Court of Appeals, and successfully challenged IEPs.
Kaitlyn is settlement-oriented unless and until trial becomes necessary. In Court, judges commend and respect her for her careful preparation, ability to solve problems in high pressure situations, and her logical presentation of facts.
Kaitlyn advocates for her clients by providing realistic advisement and solutions. She will not tell you what you want to hear, but rather what you need to hear with the goal of strengthening and rehabilitating your case in the eyes of the Court. While Kaitlyn is empathetic and understands the emotional strain that divorce and custody issues create, she manages her cases strategically and she is able to quickly regain control when a case has veered off track.
Kaitlyn’s confident, reasoned, and creative style of representation has resulted in highly successful outcomes for clients. She approaches all cases with an eye towards the best interest of any children involved, a commitment to ardent advocacy, and the highest level of integrity. She prides herself on being accessible, listening carefully, and empowering her clients with knowledge and information. This style of representation has resulted in highly positive outcomes, the effects of which persist far beyond litigation.
