Couldn't have worked out better
Cathy was really great. When I had my initial meeting with her I left there feeling better than I had since getting charged. She inspired confidence in me that we could get my incident resolved/dismissed without too much hassle. I followed her advice, and thanks to her and my husband we were able to get the best possible outcome I could've asked for. Thank you Cathy!

Cited for DUI in Hennepin County
About a month ago, I was cited for 4th Degree DUI in Hennepin County, Cathy was recommended to me by a friend and I called her that very next morning. She was extremely helpful with giving me a list of tasks that I needed to complete prior to court and was able answer all of my questions about the process, all month long. Cathy was very accessible throughout the process and gave me sound advice all the way to the day of court. Ultimately, because of the prep work that was done on the front end, my charge was plead down to Careless Driving. I would highly recommend Cathy to anyone who was in the same spot that I was in, she was thorough, professional, and dependable throughout this bad situation.

Cathy handled my case in a manner that worked out exceptionally well!
I am an Illinois resident who was arrested in Indiana for a DUI, as well as two other charges. Even though I refused the breathalyzer, she was able to get the refusal expunged and plea the charges down to reckless driving. As a result of her work, there will be no impact to my Illinois drivers license. Even though I made a huge mistake that put me in this situation, I am very thankful for her hard work that limited the impacts from what could have been a very serious conviction. I would recommend her to anyone else who needed an attorney for a similar situation.

Absolutely the best DUI attorney I have come across!!!!!
I have to say, I have never had to deal with the situation in which my son and I have just been thru with his DUI's. I went on line and found Catherine Lake and immediately called. She had us come in right then and explained everything in detail of what we were about to encounter. We were scared but the damage was done and we had to deal with the consequences of his actions. Catherine amazed us with the outcome of having 2 DUI's within 2 months apart of each other. One was dropped completely and the other was reduced immensely. I was truly blessed and extremely lucky to have found her. Her compassion and dedication to helping my son ( to where his future was not altered in a negative way ) was way beyond what I could have ever imagined! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND contacting Catherine Lake with any issues like what my son just went thru. He's 24 and because of Catherine, he still has a bright future ahead of him! Thank you again Catherine for such an amazing job you did!!!!!

D.U.I. counsel Catherine Lake goes 'The extra mile'
I was faced with a difficult D.U.I. charge Where some attorneys would and do take a shortcut or the easiest way out... I was fortunate enough to have Attorney Catherine Lake referred to me. I did not know her whatsoever. Thankfully, Attorney Catherine Lake took my case. She DID roll up her sleeves and stayed a difficult course. Catherine Lake went the extra mile for me and my family- where I was in real jeopardy of losing my C.D.L., and my job. Attorney Catherine Lake kept me updated, I never had to guess what was happening. Catherine Lake was upfront and straightforward. Much more than fair throughout. Catherine Lake knew the material and how to navigate, I am thankful that my D.U.I. case was DISMISSED! More so, It has been my experience that one cannot pay a person to care... I feel like if she did not care, the result would have been different. Attorney Catherine Lake left no doubt that she cared about me and my family... (she also took care of a speeding violation- she had it reduced to a non moving violation). We are glad to now know her. Thank you very much Cathy!

very trustworthy and dependable
Catherine Lake is an excellent attorney. She represented me in a divorce/child support case years ago and fought for me till the end. The decision was favorable for me. She recently represented me in a criminal defense case and again did an outstanding job as charges were dismissed. She is very knowledgeable, dependable, personable and courteous. Mrs. Lake cares and treats you like a person and not just another file with $$. I would definitely recommend her to anyone seeking highly professional legal representation.

Atty Lake has handled two cases for me
I have used Catherine Lake twice. In both cases, Atty Lake took the time to fully explain all aspects of the case and possible outcomes. Atty Lake was very nice in person and was able to become a bulldog in the courtroom which provided me with as much satisfaction as the outcome of the case. I would/will hire Atty Lake for future cases.

Attorney Lake did a fantastic job on my case, she put in alot of time and work into the case. Attorney Lake was prompt and accurate with the details pertaining to my case. She made sure there was an open line of communication and I received a quick response to any questions and messages. I would recommend her in a heartbeat. Thank you Attorney Lake

Helpful and responsive
I first hired another attorney - who then ignored all forms of contact once I paid his fee. My experience with Cathy Lake was exactly the opposite. She met with me on short notice, thoroughly explained all of my options to me and promised to begin on my case after our initial consultation. The next day she had already initiated contact with the prosecutor and kept me appraised of the status of my case at every step. In the end, she helped to achieve a positive outcome. I would recommend her to a friend in a similar situation.
