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!

Catherine has helped me beyond even exceprional legal help. I can not recommend her highly enough. It's nice to work with someone in family law who knows you are hurting, and does not take advantage of this, but instead gives you the information and strength you need to see through this lengthy and emotional process. Ms. NOrton was recommended to me, and I am happy to recommend her to others.

I am absolutely satisfied with my decision to hire Cathleen and her team for my child custody case. I was nervous, afraid and scared that I was going to fall apart through all of this legal stuff. Cathleen and her team did everything they could for me. They all brought me calmness and comfort in such a difficult time in my life. They were efficient, professional and always available when I had questions, doubts and concerns. If I should ever be in this type of situation again, I would definitely hire Law offices of Cathleen again. I recommend her to anyone seeking the best legal professional help. She helped end my case in the most favorable possible way for me. Don't think about it twice to hire Cathleen. She and her team are the absolute best!

From the moment I saw Cathleen and seen her reviews, I said, this will be my attorney. She managed my case exceptionally from start to finish. Her staff was very specific with what I had to do and not do. I definitely saw that she genuinely cared for the best interest of my children. It's hard to find people with morals and ethics within the justice system

I'll never quite be able to repay Cathleen Norton and her exceptional team at the firm (thanks Albertine!, Heidi and Aine) for their help in resolving my child custody issues.
Cathleen picked up the pieces of a messy divorce started by another attorney and expertly guided me through the steps necessary to fight a virtual onslaught of legal attacks designed to reduce the time I would be able to spend with him.
She was super informative, respectful of my financial issues and worked closely with me to mitigate my financial burden while pulling out all the stops during trial.
It was obvious when walking into court that everyone - from other attorneys to the bailiffs, clerks and court reporters up to the judge - liked, respected and held her in high esteem for her pragmatic approach to case management and keeping conflict low. There is really no value you can put on that in the courtroom.
I'd recommend Cathleen to any Dad fighting to have their kids in their lives, or anyone really. She exudes confidence (for good reason) and really made me feel like someone was working for me and set my mind at ease during one of the most stressful and scary times in my life.
At the end of the day she got me exactly what I asked for regarding custodial time and parental status in a very high conflict divorce. She made me reasonable when I was acting emotionally and fought like the devil for me on the issues I was most concerned with.
May you never need a lawyer for this kind of thing, but if you do, I'd highly recommend Cathleen Norton.

She delievered just what she said she would and with equal zeal too! She more than earned a rating of 10 and what she provided me will never be forgotten! Cathleen E. Norton help me secure my life and the future looks so clear now. As us egyptians say, shukran habibi, thank you dear.

I hired Ms. Norton for an out of state move away request. I appreciated Ms. Nortons honesty and integrity during this process. From the beginning Ms. Norton and her
associates were honest with me as they explained that move away requests are very hard to grant but they will do their very best to help me if I decided to retain her. I can honestly say that Ms. Norton and her team really know what they are doing and I know they did their absolute best to help me. In the end of this long battle my move away was granted and I was able to relocate out of state with my children. If you are looking for a dedicated ,honest attorney that really knows what they are doing I would highly recommend Ms. Norton. She helped me tremendously.

Cathleen and everyone in her office is just amazing! My case had been dragging on for 8 years. I had gone through 3 attorneys and consulted with a 4th before I found Cathleen. From our first meeting, I knew that she was the right person for my case. She made me feel that she was personally vested in ensuring that I received a positive outcome. She took on my case just weeks before a scheduled settlement conference and yet she showed up completely prepared. It was amazing, and things only got better for me from that point on. In the end she was able to get me divorced within 4 months of taking my case. She truly cares about her clients!

Besides being very experienced attorney, Ms Norton is very well respected within the community of lawyers. She has been handling my child visitation and child support case after my ex took me to court. Not only Cathleen is very knowledgeable about the laws and past court cases, but she is also very aggressive and articulate in the courtroom. I highly recommend Ms. Norton if you think of hiring a lawyer for your family court case.
