I thought I was hiring an attorney to help with a family member's case. I quickly found out that I hired a firm. Everyone from the top down pitched in when I needed any more help. My family member's case was relatively minor, but they treated her like the most important person they had. I was even able to speak to Katy who jumped in immediately and saved the day. I am extremely grateful for the assistance I received.

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.
