Kathi also served as a Judge Pro Tem for several years. Kathi is married with four adult children, and an energetic grandson (with more grandbabies on the way!)
Kathi is proud that most of her clients are referred not only from previous clients but also from opposing parties. She has gained a reputation as an aggressive advocate for her clients, while being relatable and supportive. Kathi strives to listen intently to clients and to honestly respond to concerns. Kathi understands the emotional circumstances and presents thoughtful guidance to clients. Kathi recognizes that the client should be intimately involved in the direction of representation. She prioritizes the team approach with the client.
Kathi values the trust placed in her by clients seeking legal services. She will work hard for you and provide the best professional representation possible at an affordable cost. Kathi will tell you what you need to know, not what you want to hear. This philosophy allows for a more realistic approach to representation. Kathi is a seasoned litigator; but she will work diligently to settle conflicts if possible to reduce client cost and stress.
