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!

As a disabled man I use a wheelchair and I have a handicap van that was totaled by a big Company , After speaking to many attorneys none would take my case because it was personal property case and there would be no money in it for the attorneys, after speaking to Lukeheart's office she told me that she would help me out By making phone calls to the insurance company and negotiating for lost of my handicap vehicleI. I asked Miss Lukeheart why she would do this for me at no cost, she said she don't like to see BIG INSURANCE COMPANY'S Taking advantage of people , Mrs Lukeheart was able to negotiate much more than I anticipated , I highly recommend her for your legal matters.. Definitely the best attorney in orange county.

Attorney Lukehart has seen me through some tough legal battles and given me legal advise on many business related matters. Her expertise has proven to be right on point with the variety of cases she's assisted me.
Lukehart first helped me when I needed legal advice on a Federal court case for my LLC Trademark infringement matter. My former LLC partner basically stole the intellectual property which I created and shut me out of the LLC without giving me any financial information whatsoever. After I hired a business litigation attorney to represent me, I paid Catherine to review the LLC Agreement and amendments. She gave a very detailed opinion on what she would do and how she would proceed during discovery. I sent this information to my attorney and he took her advice.
She also helped me with setting aside a judgment against me when I was sued by a credit card company.
I admire Catherine because she gives her honest opinion on the matter at hand, does not sugar coat it, and provides a realistic evaluation. If you're looking for an honest, knowledgeable, professional, and exceptional attorney with reasonable rates, I highly recommend Catherine Lukehart. I trust and respect her advice and her extensive knowledge in litigation.

Kathy handled my case as close to perfectly as I could possibly ask.
I was T-bones by a drunk driver and and suffered from multiple broken bones and a few days in the trauma center.
I was referred a friend to Ms. Lukehart, And thank God I was! She handled things swiftly tactfully and professionally while being unbelievably pleasant to speak to and easy to make a personal connection with. What I found most appealing about having her as my representation was her clear sense of decency and morality while making sure that justice was served and I have the opportunity to recover physically and financially for not just losses but pain and family suffering. When I showed no interest in going after the drunk then hit me for his personal holdings she was understanding and fell deeply compassionate towards both parties and their issues.
Despite having a lawyer with a conscience and compassion, we still managed to cover the maximum on all policies!
I cannot express how good it feels to be given the opportunity to be made whole again to be appropriately compensated, for justice to be served, and for all these things to take place while being able to feel good about myself and the person who represented me.
Carhy was a blessing and it was my absolute pleasure to see her get her fees she's so richly earned.
I can recommend this attorney for any decent, hard-working, caring person who needs representation.

Attorney Lukehart has successfully resolved a number of complicated tax matters on my behalf. This is an ongoing and complicated situation which she continues to resolve 100% of the time. This has been a highly stressful time which has been greatly reduced due to her responsiveness, clarity and effectiveness. Her capabilities are superior in the legal profession.

Counselor Lukehart provided me with exceptional service relative to various areas of the law. Ms. Lukehart has been 100% successful in defending me against an abusive and vexatious litigant who sued me ten times for various (bogus) claims.
Ms. Lukehart won ALL of the cases in which she represented me, namely, fraud and defamation. The claims were false, but I nevertheless had to appear in court several times to defend myself against the falsities.
The best thing I ever did was to retain legal counsel for these matters.
The court system is intimidating, cumbersome, and confusing to the non-lawyer victim of frivolous litigation. I encourage everyone to hire a lawyer to represent them.
Thanks to Ms.Lukehart, I prevailed in all of these cases and was able to prevent a sinister plaintiff from trying to repeatedly take me to the cleaners by what appeared to be a typical "shakedown" ruse.

Attorney Lukehart represented my business interests and myself in court several times and won each time. Her fees were reasonable and her response in court was clear and on issue. I have recommended her to my business associates. She and her team has never let me down.
