"Catherine was extremely helpful, diligent and effective in advising me regarding a Settlement Agreement. She helped negotiate significant financial and contractual improvements, was clear and efficient in all her communications and above all was friendly and reassuring during a stressful time. Catherine made a real effort to keep costs under control and overall they were fair and transparent.
