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.


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!
