She is knowledgeable and down to business type of person, liked her honesty and friendly approach. Would recommend her even though we didn't have attorney client relationship.

I had a really rough, drawn out divorce and my ex is use to winning, she is a commander for the police force, and she had the money for an outrageously expensive lawyer that used every dirty trick in the book to win. The one mistake her lawyer made was to underestimate my Lawyer's knowledge of the law and her intelligence. She caught him trying to file a modification without the proper filing and argued that point, so that intimately I won my last case! Honestly, intelligence, and goodness prevailed. She is a lawyer who gives your case her all no matter who she is up against!

I was impressed by Kate's knowledge, efficiency and work ethic when I used her to assist me during a divorce. I had hired a mediator and the process bogged down at several points. Kate offered me expert advice and helped me get through a difficult divorce process. Her information was always well reasoned, professional, timely and helpful. She really knows her stuff but also acts with great compassion and support. I would recommend her highly to anyone in need of a lawyer for a divorce.

Kate is the most competent, reasonable, rational, efficient and capable attorney I have ever worked with. And I have worked with many. She steps confidently into the midst of emotionally-charged, difficult situations and finds a clear, direct path back out. Calmly and intelligently.
I have never been more impressed with the professionalism any attorney. Or of the results she delivered. I literally cannot recommend her highly enough.
If you want someone to remain rational and fair, while ensuring you are protected, then look no further than Kate.

From my personal experience. If your misfortune happens to land you in a situation where you need her expertise and you're fortunate enough to be able to have her be your attorney. I just want to shout it from a rooftop that you're in excellent hands. Her knowledge, work ethics and results are outstanding! i'm just so appreciative that I had her by my side. The protection and piece of mind that came along with her Is priceless. She's beyond AWESOME. Thanks you Kate for everything.

One thing that stood up the the most about Kate is she is not about how much money she can make for you. She will do what she knows is best.
I was working with a different attorney initially and I had to switch in the middle of the process for I feel like I was not being represented well and was spending all the money for nothing. When Kate took my case, I felt better right away because I could tell she knew what she was doing.
I also appreciated that Kate was willing to meet with me outside of her office to accommodate my busy schedule as a single mom, part-time student and a full-time worker.
Thank you Kate for helping me. I am so glad I found you as my family lawyer.

Kate helped me through a turbulent child support and parenting plan modification. She immediately understood my issues and values, then provided calm, intelligent guidance through a very difficult time. I was particularly impressed with Kate's ability get right to the heart of each distinct question while always keeping my broader goals as a father, and the needs of my children, in focus. I've worked with a number of family law attorneys from big and small firms: Kate is the most effective lawyer I've met. I would hire her again with complete confidence.

Kate is really the best family lawyer. She is available at a moments notice and works late to get the job done when things come up. She is very reasonable with her rates she charges . She helped me through a very difficult divorce and custody case . I felt very safe with her as my lawyer. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs legal help.

Kate is the best family lawyer I would highly recommend to everyone! While more of the lawyers just recite their retainer and charge you for 1h consultation, she offers free consultation and sliding scale. Her work is the best you could ever pay for, because she is incredibly knowledgeable, very intelligent lawyer,who is determinated to achieve results for you faster that you could pray for. She listens very carefully what you say and gather precisely each detail of the evidence in behalf of you.She helped me to gain primary custody, building up the case for me and my precious 7 years old girl.Her work dedication and the ammont of time she spend in research, communication with all professionals were outstanding!
She has been my guardian angel in this nightmarish battle with my ex psychopath husband, who was filing tons of documents agaist me.
Words will not suffice how grateful I am to Kate and for the amazing work she has done for successful representation of my case!!!

Kate really is the BEST family law attorney anywhere near Seattle!!!
I came to Kate after I was being charged an arm and a leg by my previous Seattle attorney - where I was at 11k charged with him and only at temporary orders. Beware that many of these attorneys are out there!!! Kate agreed to take my case after temporary orders were in place and took a chance on me. I am so grateful that she did!
She knows how to handle domestic violence cases and cases where abusers are trying to financially cripple the other party. My case was beyond complex - an interstate case, a custody war in another state, divorce in WA and parenting plan w/ child support being litigated in another state. I was living over 2000 miles away from WA after I fled my abuser ex to protect my children. My ex was trying to drag me and our son back to WA, lying under oath left and right, and ignoring all court orders and wouldn't even show up to court or to contempt of court proceedings! He is probably the most difficult opposing party any attorney has ever had to deal with! Kate took on my case with all of these obstacles and was still able to push my case forward. She brought my abuser ex back into reality real quick!! I would have lost everything and been railroaded by my ex's 10.0 rating attorney if it wasn't for her! I would have been dragged back to WA and my kids and I would be subjected to an abuser! We're now safe and over 2000 miles away & finally in peace!
Kate is beyond professional, knows how to communicate, is valued and respected in court, knows how be firm when needed, her letter writing ability is superb, and most importantly she really cares about her clients! She was able to get up to speed on my case in only hours and knew the entire history off the top of her head. I have consulted with and hired at least 5+ family law attorneys in the past and by far she is the BEST!
You will not regret hiring her! She is not an attorney that will overcharge you! She is upfront, gets back to you promptly, and she is able to do what other attorneys can't! Do not let Kate's 4 years of experience deter you to thinking that you need someone who has more experience. I'm 100% confident that she can handle any case and has many years of experience dealing with the most difficult ones.
Now that my divorce is complete & this nightmare is finally over - I have full custody of my/our son, a supervised parenting plan in place, and even went to trial with Kate and she secured me a divorce settlement that can only be described as AMAZING!
She will be the 1st and only call to an attorney I make if I need an attorney in the future. I already know she is priceless to have in my corner. If you need an attorney who knows family law, who has experience with domestic violence and the most difficult opposing parties, who communicates with her clients promptly, and someone you can really trust - I can assure you she is all of this and more!!!!!
My only regret is that I didn't hire her sooner!!!
