Kathryn L. Sullivan never backs down, even with the most difficult of cases. President Theodore Roosevelt’s famous quote — Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far — resonates with her in practice. She works as hard as possible to resolve her client’s cases efficiently and cost-effectively, bringing a willingness to work with the other party’s attorney amicably and collaboratively. However, if litigation is unavoidable, Kathryn loves nothing more than to be in the courtroom. She works relentlessly and without intimidation to protect her client’s best interests. Always the first attorney to arrive at the courthouse, Kathryn puts in the time and preparation to bring successful resolution for her clients.

Divorce and other family law matters almost always start a major transformation in a person’s life. Kathryn tells her clients that while she can’t control what has happened in the past, together they can look towards the future and overcome any obstacles necessary to create a fresh start. She believes direct communication is paramount to a strong attorney-client relationship, counseling her clients every step of the way. Her significant experience in family law as well as in criminal defense, bankruptcy, and civil litigation allows her to bring a unique perspective to think outside of the box with each case.

Q. Why i still have to pay suport when we share phisical/legal 50/50, kids spent a week with me and week with the mother
A: These are questions you should be asking your lawyer. With limited information it is impossible to answer your question definitively. I urge you to consult with your lawyer regarding your concerns, or, if you weren't represented, then consult with an experienced family law attorney in your area. In the meeting the lawyer can review your specific situation and give you well-informed advice.
