  • Zeshan Q Khan

    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..

  • Jonathan Blake Hilty

    I endorse Katherine Kent. Katherine is diligent and an effective advocate for her clients. She has a strong command of family law and it shows both in and out of the courtroom.
