Catherine Vincent and the Vincent Law Group is a great office to work with. They helped me through a very difficult and emotional time. My ex was trying to move my children out of state with his new girlfriend. Vincent Law Group worked with me so efficiently I was able to keep my children in California. I did not have to communicate with my ex at all, Catherine and her staff took care of everything. They worked in a timely fashion and had a great attitude. I highly recommend Catherine and Vincent Law Group.

Catherine Vincent was the best attorney I could have asked for. I was going through a difficult time with my ex and getting custody of my three children. Catherine took care of everything and I didn't have to deal with my ex at all. I recommend Catherine to everyone I know. She is a great attorney.

Do your research and find another attorneys office to handle your divorce. Going through a divorce is not pleasant and the staff here did not make it any easier. I was dealing with an incompetent paralegal that made countless clerical errors on my paperwork. I was called to schedule an appointment to meet with Catherine Vincent to review my papers and sign them to be filed. Well, that was a waste of everyone's time because the papers were beyond incomplete, after I was told it was. The first thing I was asked is if I had my copies. No, I do not. red flag! Then we began looking over everything. So much was missing and yet no one bothered to tell me what I needed just was rushed to schedule an appointment to sign final court papers. The attorney was not shy about showing her disgust towards the paralegal and what was not done yet. I found that to be very unprofessional and I was very disappointed and upset about this happening. I felt it was just a way to be able to charge me more money.
Later I sent in an email expressing my concerns and how I felt that I should not be charged for this visit because they were not prepared. The charges credited back, but then I was also told that I could just not be their client anymore. As if I made an error. Last I checked I am the one paying you to help me. Looking back I feel I should have found a new attorney. Where is the customer service and empathy towards clients going through this hard time in life? Whenever I was emailed my invoices I got a sick feeling in my stomach because I was being charged and charged for people to be reviewing my case through out this whole process yet it seemed to be going no where yet they always wanted more and more money from me. There was so many of the other clerical errors I caught which if not caught by myself could have been huge issues on my legal papers. The worst one was where my income was switched with my ex husbands income. And they almost had his wage garnishments going to his old employer. My judgement was even rejected by the courts because of their clerical errors. After I sat with the attorney for almost 2 hours going through it to be sure it was correct.
Unfortunately the errors caused my judgement to be re-submitted. I was assured I would not be charged for these changes because the were all clerical errors. I am still seeing these charges on my invoices and when I try to address the charges being removed, my email and calls are not returned. Now finally my case is done and final, but yet still having another issue. I have been waiting for my ex husbands wages to be garnished for weeks now. I finally get a letter from a payroll company asking for forms I do not have. Two days go by and countless phone calls to try and figure this out. I am told by the state of California that the income withholding order which was only sent to the employer should have been sent to the state of California Child Support unit not the employer. And that the income withholding order should not have both child support and spousal support on one, there should be two orders one for child support and one for spousal support. Because the spousal support did not have to be processed through the state. I would think that my attorney and paralegal would know this stuff, right?? This is extremely frustrating because I need that money so now I am going to have to wait several more weeks to receive any funds. I am a single mom with 2 kids I work 2 part time jobs and have not been receiving much help from their father/my ex. So once again their incompetent errors have struck again. This one now causing me a huge financial hardship. I want to also mention that I was very dissatisfied with how I was treated. Their level of empathy and professionalism is seriously lacking. As a paying client I was very upset when I experienced their rude unprofessional-ism when I expressed my concerns. After seeing other reviews, I agree with them it is all about the money in their pockets.

I offer my highest endorsement to Catherine Vincent. If you are involved in any matter before the family law court, divorce, child custody, support, domestic violence, guardianship, this is the attorney you want on your side. Catherine is experienced, a zealous advocate, a great negotiator and a tough trial lawyer.
