Outstanding advocacy and support
I presented myself to Katie at a terrible time in my life. I was emotional, upset, and frightened. A divorce seemed like a terrible thing to want, and still I wanted one—desperately. She advised me calmly and competently from the start regarding my legal options and was direct about possible outcomes. Katie’s kind manner defies the stereotypical power bluster that some lawyers project—and it is exceptionally effective. She prepares carefully. She listens carefully. Her knowledge is detailed, focused, and well communicated. Thanks to her approach I also gained access to a “team “ of people to help get through the process, and begin to remake my life. I highly respect Katie. I recommend her without reservation.

thank you Katie
Katie is smart, thoughtful and a good listener. She helped me get through the most difficult time in my life. She knows what battles to pick and is upfront about what to expect. I appreciated her honesty and willingness to fight for me, as well as her honesty in what is realistic in court which I believe ultimately saved me money in the end. She was responsive, personable, and willing to go the extra mile. I appreciate her efforts to put me in the best position possible given an impossible situation.
