After being filed with divorce papers, I called Kathleen and left her a message regarding my circumstance. She promptly returned my call and was extremely helpful and concerned regarding my case. It was a breath of fresh air that someone finally cared and understood. I ended up meeting with her later that day and when I walked in still extremely emotional she looked at me and I felt like she understood. I explained my situation and told her that I was most concerned for my two children. She also understood that from a personal level also. Kate always tried to make sure that I understood that it really was the communication between my ex and I that would most likely solve this. She also completely understood and reminded me that all this anger from him was feelings of hurt. Kate was there for me emotionally and answered all my questions regarding the case at anytime. She was even willing to talk to me on weekends and from home. Kate is professional, caring, and I will always be thankful to her for helping me in one of the worst times is my life.
