    I have worked on cases against Kathy on several occasions. Her professionalism and pleasant attitude make working with her a treat. Kathy is a wonderful mediator and I look forward to working with her on cases in the future. I absolutely endorse her.

  • Teresa Ann Sherman

    I have had the privilege of working with Kathy for over ten years, and I recommend her highly. She is hard working, honest and will get the job done. She has no problem taking on a tough fight, and getting positive results. Her experience in representing both Plaintiffs and Defendants gives her a unique perspective and insight other attorneys don't have.
