Ms. Curl was very helpful and responsive to my initial inquiry relating to a Mechanic's Lien placed against me by a sub-contractor. She provided me some essential background on liens and then outlined several steps that would be useful in my situation. She was very knowledgeable and attentive to my situation bringing her years of construction law experience to the forefront. If I have to move forward in hiring an attorney, I would not hesitate to contract her services. Very professional.

Those are about the highest praise one lawyer can give about another, that they are Professional and Practical. Anyone can tell you about the lawsuit that they are going to file for you, but Cathleen sees the other way around the case, how to handle the case without involving an attorney if possible and if an attorney is required, the practical way to do that.
HIring a lawyer isn't necessarily in expensive, but when you hire a practical lawyer like Cathleen you will likely get a reasonable result with a reasonable fee.

Cathleen M Curl is the best attorney I have ever met. She impressed me the most not only she is very knowledgeable, professional, clear what she is doing, but also, which is most important, after you finish your conversation with her, when you walk out her door, you will feel certain, know where you are, what you shall do next and what will be the conclusion for your case.
I am an engineer and landlord, I had a case involving construction, contractor, sub-contractors, material suppliers and mechanic lien. It was a complicated case. Before I met Cathleen M Curl, I had communicated with several other attorneys. Those communications made me feel the case was a big mess which made me feel very discourage and worry. However, after I talked Cathleen M Curl only for one hour, I was very clear about case and the direction. When she explained the law, discussed the case and suggested the different solution options for the case to me, I could see she was very professional, knowledgeable, strong, experienced, and very sincere and nice as well.
The rate of the attorney fee that Cathleen M Curl charges is the highest among the attorneys I communicated for this case, but it is worth since she works so effectively and she is so helpful. In my case, she save me lot more than what I expect. Can you imagine that, when you try to do something emotionally, an attorney would come you down and guide you not to spend those attorney fee for emotion? Cathleen M Curl will.
Therefore, I strongly recommend attorney Cathleen M Curl.
