  • Christopher Francis Attig

    I've known Katrina for a few years. Her advocacy on behalf of Veterans is some of the best and most tireless that I have seen in our community. She has accomplished results that help not just one or two Veterans, but that have helped the whole Veterans Community. I can say without reservation that I endorse Katrina, her tireless advocacy, and her fierce focus on achieving justice for her clients and due process and equal protection of the law for Veterans. Proud to know Katrina!

  • Sharmine Persaud

    I have attended several of Ms. Eagle's speaking engagements over the past few years. Most recently, I attended her presentation at the fall NOSSCR conference. Ms. Eagle is a knowledgeable and dynamic speaker. Her committment to the legal profession, veteran's and their families is apparent in her presentation and years of dedication in this area of law. She has inspired me! I endorse this lawyer.
