Recommend if you want someone fair, professional, and thorough. I hired Kathleen to help me on a pretty complicated modification of custody case. She has been both kind and professional during my case. She is very good at explaining the process and in bringing the language down for a non-legal person. Her recommendations and thoroughness gave me an outcome that both parties walked away happy with.

Having utilized several attorneys in my life, Kathleen is by far the most skilled, fair, and effective attorney with whom I have ever had the pleasure of having a professional relationship. She is dedicated, extremely aggressive, and absolutely gets results. If you are considering a Family Law Attorney, she is your go-to. My courtroom experience was seamless, and I didn't worry a bit - I knew that I had the best on my side. I am so thankful for her knowledge and legal aptitude, and will retain her for future services, should circumstances warrant legal expertise.

I hired Kathleen after our phone consultation. After a long custody modification process, with a very high conflict ex, I was granted physical custody of my child! (even while living in a different state) I see my ex gave Kathleen a 1 star review below, here's why my ex did that: Kathleen was truly an amazing advocate! She was courteous, honest, attentive, extremely knowledgeable of the law & knew what would be best for my child and myself. Thank you to you all! I couldn't be more happy with the law office & highly recommend hiring Kathleen.
