I had an unfair pay situation with my employer where I was unable to personally resolve the matter and my complaints were ignored and dismissed, so I knew I needed an attorney.
Katie was referred to me by someone who had heard positive comments about work she had done for an acquaintance at another organization. Katie immediately took charge, informed me about my legal rights, how to navigate through the legal system and got the conversation going with the necessary people to discuss my claims.
Katie was able to negotiate a favorable out of court settlement and without her expertise I would have not received anything. I would recommend that anyone with a human resource matter to discuss your situation with her.

Katharina negotiated an exit package for me that I had already started on my own. She was able to gain additional healthcare benefits, executive coaching & outplacement services and appropriate mutual release language. She was extremely responsive and I always knew the status of my case.

Katie is a consummate professional. She was fair, open, honest and transparent every step of the way. She took a personal interest in helping us navigate through a very challenging set of circumstances. Katie delivered all she committed to and more. I would strongly recommend her.

Katharina was recommended to me by another lawyer who had done some work for me in the past, because she had more experience in the field in which I had a problem- employee fraud. I had hired a woman as my assistant / bookkeeper/ office manager at my very small business, who ended up embezzling from me, and also costing me a lot of money by being totally incompetent. To make a long story short, after my new bookkeeper and I fully documented what had happened, K wrote a scary letter to my ex-employee, who promptly admitted having done it... in large part due to Ms. Martinka's expertise the whole resolution went incredibly smoothly, and I was very promptly re-imbursed not only the embezzled amount but all of my expenses around resolution, and damages for all the late fees, interest, etc. which she had cost me from having consistently failed to file tax forms correctly. Katharina throughout the entire process was easy to get in touch with, easy to communicate with, friendly, even funny, and totally professional and efficient. I give her the absolute highest recommendation!!!

I consulted with and subsequently hired Katharina to assist me in an employment matter (pregnancy discrimination) I was facing with my employer. Specifically, she helped to successfully negotiate my desired separation and severance from the Company while ensuring that my professional reputation remained intact. She works extremely efficiently, is very responsive, and professional. She kept me in the loop each step of the way and communicates clearly and effectively. She made me feel at ease with the process and I felt like she always had my best interest in mind. I would not hesitate to hire her again (should I need to).

In addition to being highly knowledgeable in corporate transactions and contracts, IP and employment matters, her approaches are innovative, insightful and affordable. She is tenacious in pursuit of her clients’ interests. I unhesitatingly refer her to my clients and colleagues.

From the initial consultation to the very closing of my case and representation, Katie was professional, thorough and responsive. She set realistic expectations and looked to achieve a fair and practical results vs. looking to run up her billable hours. I hope I never need an attorney again, but if I do, I will for sure use Katie Martinka.
