Kathie has provided legal advice for my business and personal issues. She has been involved in a number of my business negotiations to my satisfaction. More recently, she has been invaluable in helping me navigate a merger/acquisition opportunity. Over the years, I have appreciated her patience explaining the legalese to me so that I can understand the implications. I trust Kathie to watch my back and keep me interests at the forefront. I refer her to all of my colleagues and friends.

I used Kathryn two years ago for an incorporation, which was my first. She made a few errors, and when I brought them up she was highly confrontational, and started yelling in an attempt to intimidate me. Her billing practices are vague and she overcharges - she is more of a business than a lawyer. She creates situations where she can charge more. The lawyer I used for our second business ended up costing a quarter as much, and didn't have as many problems. While she has a good reputation, in talking to others behind closed doors, many of her peers feel that she overcharges just to make a buck.

Kathie is a very experienced and knowledgeable business lawyer I have known for many years. She is very careful and conscientious in her work. She does things the right way, making sure clients receive the protections they need. I highly recommend her!
