Cathleen helped me win and we didn't just win...we won big. As a single a Father, my custody case was everything to me. Believe me when I say that Cathleen Norton is a cut above the competition in every way. Smart and strategic. Passionate and caring. Cathleen is the kind of lawyer that truly commits to excellence in her field and that is why she blows away the competition!
There is no doubt in my mind that the other side wishes they could have hired Cathleen instead. There are only five stars but I wish I could give ten stars because that is what Cathleen and her law firm deserve. I am forever grateful that I stumbled upon Avvo in my search to find the best lawyer to represent my case. I strongly suggest you read through Cathleen's client reviews as I did. The proof is in the pudding. You simply won't find another Lawyer with as many satisfied and thankful clients as Cathleen Norton.
Before I found Ms. Norton, I had initial consultations with five other Family Lawyers in my search to find the best representation. I had spoke with many others Lawyers by phone. No one wants to go to court but when it comes to your family, future and success in life –– you can't make these decisions lightly. Going into a legal battle with the best representation possible (or lack thereof) will make or break your case. Deciding to hire Cathleen was the best decision I made and in the future I wouldn't want to work with anyone else. I would absolutely recommend her to my closest family and friends.
In times past, I've worked with lawyers who would meticulously charge me for every single thing they could. With Cathleen and her team there was always a sense of understanding and compassion in regards to everything. I must say that they were generous and careful with both the retainer and the fees I was being charged. I know for a fact in many instances they saved me money.
My court case was complex and had many layers to it. Over the course of almost a year we were put to the test in the court room. There were many ups and downs. Cathleen and her law firm were always there for me –– keeping me updated and educated on every twist and turn. Heidi, Aine and Albertine are a fantastic team and I enjoyed the process of working with all of them.
In the end, not only did Cathleen exceed all expectations as a lawyer, I felt she truly cared for the outcome of my case in only the way a friend could. That passion for winning the case was clear in her final closing statements to the Judge and it was as persuasively delivered as any courtroom scene from a movie. When the Judge ruled in our favor I couldn't help but feel blessed and appreciative for the knowledge, dedication and preparation of Cathleen Norton and her entire team. Thank you again Cathleen, you're the best!

There is a very simple reason why Cathleen has such high review scores on AVVO; she is a talented and outstanding attorney who works for her clients as if they were her personal friend or family member. In other words, you get the sense that she truly cares about her clients and she does. I had the very fortune experience of coming across her profile during my search for new representation after a serious child custody crisis. After my first meeting with her I was confident I had found the right person. Her knowledge, professionalism, honesty and genuine demeanor shined throughout the entire process. She skillfully brought calm to a very emotional and chaotic situation. Cathleen and her remarkable team (Albertine and company) worked steadfastly for me. I honestly cannot express enough thanks, gratitude or appreciation for all their hard work and support in what they helped accomplish for me and my daughter.
