I used to work with Katy at Tiftickjian Law Firm before she left to pursue an opportunity to work for one of Pennsylvania's top DUI defense and criminal defense firms--The McShane Law Firm. Katy cares for her clients and has a passionate and effective approach to criminal and DUI defense. I am proud to have called her my mentor when I was new to the profession as she challenged me and taught me to be a passionate representative of justice. I endorse Katy as I know her ability to effectively defend the accused is paramount and exemplary.

Attorney Nathan J. Dineen, Germantown WI

Katherine is an excellent lawyer. She is a dedicated lawyer who goes above and beyond to help her clients. Not only does she do this in the courtroom, she does it outside of the courtroom as well. Katherine recently graduated from the American Chemical Society DUID Course. This course has limited admissions and is a very intense hands on DUI defense course. This is just one example of the dedication Katherine has to her clients. She will fight when others generally tell their clients to plea. I highly endorse her.
