Phenomenal divorce and family law attorney; LGBTQ friendly.
I am so glad I found Kate. She handled my divorce several years ago, and has helped me with various other matters since. My divorce was challenging, with custody concerns, tricky financial issues, and an ex-husband who vacillated between unreasonable stubbornness and argumentative interactions and ignoring us entirely (very unhelpfully). Kate helped me to navigate this minefield and got me what I still think was the best outcome possible, with the least cost and emotional turmoil. She was sensitive throughout; truly someone I felt I could trust in such a vulnerable time.
Kate is still someone I turn to when I need legal advice and she has been unfailingly responsive and helpful. I have referred her to friends gladly when the need has arisen. I am happily remarried now, and there is no one else my wife and I would trust with our legal issues, particularly as we have same-sex parenting interests to protect.
Kate McDonough was the attorney handling the probate for our mother’s estate & most supportive to our large family and multiple heirs. She was very kind & professional during a difficult time. Her guidance through the probate process was invaluable, as was her thorough handling of the many cumbersome legal details required throughout the process. I would highly recommend Kate’s legal services.

I retained Ms. McDonough as my attorney for an appellate matter. She was very professional and always made herself available to me when I had any questions or concerns during the process. She and her staff always made sure I had thorough documentation of the appeals process. I would highly recommend Ms. McDonough will use her if necessary in the future.

I hired Ms. McDonough on two separate occasions and both items were taken care of in a timely and accurate fashion. I have recommended her to many other people to handle their various items as I know she and her support staff do a great job handling legal matters.

Kate and her team recently represented us in a legal situation that up until hiring her, we had been fighting for over two years without any success. It was not until we hired Kate that we finally felt like we may have a chance at some closure and relief from an incredible ongoing burden. Kate, Lourdes and the team were highly professional. Kate’s strategy stood out in comparison to our previous experience working with other attorneys. She draws on a culmination of years of practice, intuition and experience and it shows in all her work. She had a strategic plan and communicated with us every step of the way. He bill rate was very fair and she was very honest in her billing hours. Kate was able to help successfully deliver an outcome that all our previous legal counsel failed to produce. Most importantly she treated us with respect and we felt as though she genuinely cared about the outcome of our case. I would highly recommend Kate McDonough and her staff.
