Catherine Lukehart is a beyond amazing and exceptional attorney. She is honest, reliable, extremely knowledgeable and she exudes integrity. She handled my very sensitive case with great compassion and empathy. There are no words that could accurately express my immense gratitude for Catherine Lukehart's legal representation on my behalf. It's quite obvious that "character matters" to Catherine as that is clearly shown in the way she chooses to conduct herself. She is an amazing attorney that I would highly recommend. Thank you so very much Catherine Lukehart...you are simply the BEST!

My call to Catherine Lukehart was desperate. My previous lawyer had put me in a precarious position. He had done nothing to further my interest in a very complicated case and then quit unexpectedly after he reached the end of his retainer. A call to Orange County Bar Association resulted in a positive referral to Catherine Lukehart’s office.
Lukehart listened. She asked me questions my previous attorney ignored. In a couple hours, she understood the case better than my previous attorney ever did, and knew what needed to be done. And it wasn’t pretty. I’m still amazed she took this case.
After a two-year ordeal that involved - literally - a crate load of evidence that included about 2,000 pages of medical records and hundreds of pages of texts and emails, Ms. Lukehart negotiated a reasonable settlement to a case that looked impossible. Understanding what Lukehart does is why she is recommended many times.
During conferences, Lukehart keeps it real. Her meetings are productive. Her questioning skills, coupled with a keen sense of case law, lead to legal strategies that work. Most importantly, she was able to help me make common sense judgments that subsequently affected the positive outcome of the case.
At no point did she make a decision without my absolute consent. At no point did I feel pressure to make a decision I felt wasn’t right. Lukehart can explain in detail how the court will see where fault begins and ends according to evidence. And that’s important, especially when you think the whole world should see why you’re right and the other person is wrong.
Lukehart’s skill at deposition was artful. During a grueling 400-minute deposition, Lukehart exposed numerous falsehoods the opposing litigant emphatically claimed were true. Lukehart’s personal command of the evidence set her far apart from the opposing attorney.
The opposing litigant was forced to refute many items her attorney had included in his filing because Lukehart’s questioning zeroed in on inconsistencies between what the opposing litigant said and the evidence her office had subpoenaed.
During the deposition, Lukehart's questioning cadence never broke. One question followed another question quickly for more than six hours. The opposing litigant didn’t have the luxury of time between questions to nuance answers.
My case was handled in the most expeditious, competent, and friendly manner. Lukehart is an attorney who will treat your time, money and your legal case with the utmost of respect. Simply, Lukehart is an attorney you can trust.

Mrs. Lukehart was excellent in handling my case in the most respectable and timely manner. She helped me out when no one else would care to bother. I had to call Mrs. Lukehart after the "good faith" of the insurance company didn't hold up in their part in insuring me a fair case. She helped me out even though my time to file a lawsuit was running out of time; she still attempted and conquered in winning my case. I received an amazing settlement and had great satisfaction in having found Mrs. Lukehart. She will help you beyond all means necessary!
