    Catherine is the kind of lawyer who gives lawyers a good name. She is caring and honest and no-nonsense about getting the job done the best way possible for the client, with an emphasis on the particular needs of the specific client, no cookie-cutter lawyering here. I am proud to have her occasionally call me to discuss a fine point of what she is planning on doing for a client, and on being able to call her in similar situations, because she is thorough and loves her work, which shows.

    Catherine LaFond helped my mother with her living trust and estate issues earlier this year. Catherine's thoroughness, thoughtfulness and compassion are unrivaled when dealing with such sensitive matters ...and with a 92 year old lady I call mom! Catherine presented materials to my mother in such a way that made her understand clearly the process and feel comfortable that she was being protected and taken care of. Catherine is a knowledgeable and personable attorney who has my full confidence.
