“We used Kate for a home study for an adoption. She was professional, competent and empathetic to our needs. I couldn’t have been more pleased & would not hesitate from using her for any legal case.”


“So thankful for the help and advice I received from Kate! I was dealing with some issues with my ex husband not following the parenting plan. Kate was able to meet with me right away and within a week addressed the issues with my ex’s attorney. I believe my ex got the message Kate meant business and she was not going to tolerate him disrespecting me and the kids. Glad she was in my corner!!!”


“I’ve not personality used Kate, but I saw her work bring joy to a friend’s. She was professional and in command when required, but so personal and caring. Legal matters always require two things, compassion and competence- Kate excels at both.”
