What Our Clients Say

“Kathryn- Thanks so much for keeping on top of [everything] for me. With your help, my life is finally back on track!”

R.D. (Blackstone, MA), client of Kathryn J. Schwartz

“Just want to thank you for everything you’ve done to settle this divorce. You’re bright, knowledgable, helpful, logical, patient and most of all compassionate!”

D.E., client of Kathryn J. Schwartz

“Thank you very much for all of the hard work you have put into my divorce, the only reason I felt comfortable to represent myself yesterday was because you have already paved the road for me, you had everything in place, all I had to do was go and answer some questions. My divorce last for about 1 year, during that 1 year I never had any problem to reach you, even on your busiest day you always ensure to return my call before you go home.

For all of the documents and filings, you always make sure that I review them first to ensure that we are not missing anything and by doing that, not only you make me feel that you put me in the driver seat, but also you have taught me a lot about the process and the court system in MA. Due to your hard work, now I have my daughter and I don’t have to pay child support anymore.

Again, thank you very much and I feel comfortable to refer to you anybody I know who wants to get divorce.”

S.B. (Plainville, MA), client of Kathryn J. Schwartz

“Thank you again for your support and advocacy over the past 6+ months. [My daughter] moved to California on Monday and is on her way to a new beginning. I know that separation and divorce, as well as all the personal trauma involved, is something you deal with every day in your work. I hope you appreciate the impact you have. Your presence and responsiveness through many crises were invaluable to our family and we will be forever grateful.’

L.E. (Dover, MA), client of Kathryn J. Schwartz

“Thank you and your professional team for all your diligent efforts in successfully getting our child custody case dismissed. You were extremely well prepared for every opposition and your knowledge was exceptional. We feel blessed that you were on our team and your strength shined through on the date of our trial. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for fighting for our children!”
