Client Testimonial

She has been and continues to be spectacular! Hands down a GREAT lawyer. 5.0 stars

I first saw Caitlin in action with another case while I was waiting for my TPA hearing in late 2015. After my TPA I wasn’t too confident in my previous lawyer at the time. So I chose to have a consultation with her and while talking about my situation she caught some important things that my old lawyer missed. I hired her immediately, I just felt confident with our conversation and direction. She provided great feedback and suggestions. She will give you an honest opinion on situations, she isn’t like other lawyers- she will consider your financial situation and give you options and her recommendations when dealing with difficult situations and what you could be potentially spending and the risk. In difficult times she would advise you to still do the right thing in regards to co-parenting- child custody cases are the most emotional cases to deal with so her patience was appreciated. In my experience her honesty and integrity won me over! she is very sharp, very prepared and will fight hard for you- I highly recommend Caitlin!
