Client Testimonials

Kate is one of a kind! I am beyond thankful that our paths crossed during one of the most difficult times of my life. She is such a compassionate and empathetic lawyer, and really humanized my whole experience while helping me see the big picture. Forever grateful for her expertise and guidance!
O.T.
Kate is a brilliant, amazing, and honest lawyer who has gone above and beyond in my very long divorce and child custody battle. She has walked me through many ups and downs and has always had my family’s best interest in mind. I would highly recommend her to anyone. I would not have been able to get through it if it wasn’t for her wisdom and counseling.
Kim A.
Kate represented me in my divorce and then post decree issues with my ex. Kate and her partners were consistently reasonable, ethical and fair – even in the face of unprofessionalism. I felt empowered throughout the process to take control and attribute that to how Kate and her partners handled my situation.
Megan C.
Kate Lewis has been a tremendous help in my case. I would not have received the judgement I did without her. Kate is a friendly yet an aggressive attorney and will put full effort into every aspect of the case to obtain the best judgement possible. I have and will continue to recommend her services. In my opinion Kate is by far the best attorney in Family Law anyone could ask for.
Kody L.
I have worked with both Jamie and Kate and they both are experts in their fields. Jamie discussed the option of an appeal after my last court hearing. She gave me her devout attention and provided me with excellent information to make an educated decision in the matter. Kate has been working with me for two years and has provided consistent, expert knowledge on how to work with an ex who enjoys conflict. She provided advice on how to respond to unusual and confusing emails from my ex as well as provided insight from the courts point of view of how to best proceed with an ex who thrives on conflict. I have had experience with other attorneys in this field and none compare to the professionalism and expertise of Jamie and Kate. It is comforting to find attorneys willing to respond quickly, completely and with your kids best interest in mind.
S.H.
Kate handled every aspect of my case with unwavering dedication. Her thorough knowledge of family law along with her ability to personalize that to my specific needs made the processes of initial divorce and post decree modification smooth and fair. Kate possesses the right balance of compassion and integrity, along with the ability to stand her ground, to be successful in navigating difficult circumstances and complex needs involving family law, parenting schedules and emergency situations.
Lynn
Going through a divorce is hard on so many levels but working with Kate Lewis provided me with so much peace. I felt taken care of, well informed, and protected every step of the way. She truly helped me navigate the roller coaster of emotions and legal jargon the opposing counsel threw at us. I had/have every confidence in her and am very happy.

Jamie, Nate and Kate were SO helpful through every facet of my divorce. Things were languishing for a long time, but as soon as I sat down with them they got everything on track. I should have contacted them sooner, highly recommend this team!
