If I'm you, I wouldn't even bother looking anywhere else for an attorney. She really is the best!
I hired her to handle a contentious family issue and she fought for me; but with class and grace. We ended up in court and Katherine was BRILLIANT! She doesn't roll in the mud with people, but fights hard through her preparation. Katherine delivers her arguments with confidence and passion! I often got emails at night and on weekends. There was no doubt she put in a lot of hours to make sure we had the best chance to win the case.
I've been burned by lawyers in the past and Katherine renewed my faith in people who do this work. Thank you!

I hired Katherine to help me through a potentially contentious legal separation. Throughout the proceedings, she was honest and knowledgeable and was able to negotiate with the opposing lawyer and present me with options that ultimately worked in my favor. She was able to negotiate the choice of mediator and came into the mediation session with facts and data that the opposing counsel did not have a response for. Again, this greatly worked in my favor as to the final settlement. I would highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for a highly responsive and proactive lawyer with her client's best interests at heart.

Katherine helped me through my divorce, the whole time keeping things calm, in perspective and fair. She went to bat for me and I feel like I had a very favorable outcome in a difficult and potentially contentious situation. Katherine is knowledgeable, a good strategist, and fair. I recommend her to anyone seeking assistance in settling a divorce, whether it is an amicable parting or not. We avoided court and ended up with a fair settlement.

I've known Katherine since before we took the bar exam. So I've seen her upward trajectory as an excellent attorney. Those raw elements existed long before I met her. But during these years, she's honed those talents to become a well-respected practitioner with razor-sharp abilities and enviable skills. She's a problem-solver but isn't afraid to stand up for her clients. And she's a go-to sounding board for me when I have a complicated issue I need help on. You can't go wrong in choosing her..
