This lawyer went out of her way to defend my son (a convicted felon). She had knowlege of the laws. She was prepared. She stood up to the Federal agents and the judge who continually tried to shut her out. I think they were rude and short with her just because she is a woman, but she stuck to her preparations and won the case for my son who is a convicted felon. But the evidence was there and she prooved that my son was innocent of the trumpted up charges. Saved him 7 years in prison. We will be forever grateful. She is very hard working, honest. I would choose her again in a heartbeat. Thanks, Catherine!!!!

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I worked with Catherine on a complex Federal matter that required review of thousands of pages of discovery and analysis of complex concepts relating to selling counterfeit products. I was extremely impressed with her intelligence, intuition, and ability to hone in on the real legal issues. She was a sharp advocate for her client and was able to get a fantastic sentence in the end. Catherine has a calming demeanor and is a pleasure to work with. I endorse this attorney.
