  • Catherine made the best out of a bad situation.

    “It’s not often you hear someone say they enjoyed working with a divorce attorney, but as difficult as a divorce is, I feel Catherine made the best out of a bad situation. She recommended the mediation route which saved a lot of time and money, along with the hard feelings and loss of control that often result in going to court. If you’re looking for a smart, hard-working attorney who’s also very responsive, I recommend you call Catherine!”

    BRIAN, Sales Trainer

  • A great attorney who knows exactly how to win

    “Catherine, you are not only a great attorney who knows exactly how to win, but more than that, you are patient, caring and compassionate. You knew how to lift me up when I was down. That was so important to me when I was falling apart during my divorce. You have been a friend besides my attorney and for that, I am grateful. Janine’s attention to detail in the preparation of documents for my trial was incredible, but even more so, Janine was my cheerleader and for that, I am grateful. I want to thank you and Janine, from the bottom of my heart, for everything you have done for me in the last year and a half. It has meant so much to me.”

    SUSAN, Chief Financial Officer

  • Having Ms. Benouis on my team made the process tolerable.

    “Going through a divorce is not easy. Having Ms. Benouis on my team made the process tolerable. She really knows what to expect and how to prepare her client. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone facing a divorce! Her staff is incredibly helpful and available to answer questions quickly.”


  • A calm, knowledgeable and professional attorney.

    “As an attorney, I wanted a family lawyer who not only knew the law, but who also practiced with professionalism. I found that – and more – with Catherine. Catherine approaches every case with a personal touch and big picture analysis to help her clients finish the case as quickly and efficiently as possible. Since my own divorce, I’ve referred a number of friends to Catherine for their family law needs. I wholeheartedly recommend anyone looking for a calm, knowledgeable and professional attorney to help them.”

    PAUL, State Affairs Manager

  • Professionalism and competence.

    “My attorney and her team demonstrated professionalism and competence in their field. I would without hesitation recommend them for legal services.”


  • Catherine knows exactly what she is doing.

    “After being married 24 years, I knew my divorce was going to be life-altering. Any divorce is rough, but Catherine knows exactly what she is doing. Catherine made sure I was informed every step of the way, and she had all areas covered. No matter how arduous and tedious the process, she was empathetic and kind, knowledgeable and motivated. I can’t recommend her enough. Thank you Catherine for being an excellent attorney and friend!”

    KEITH, Database Programming

  • A great combination of efficient and effective

    “Cathy was perfect for our custody case. She was a great combination of efficient and effective as well as compassionate yet firm. She was always responsive and made herself immediately available when we had a few urgent issues arise. She came highly recommended to us, and now we can highly recommend her to others.”

    Former Client

    “Going through my divorce was tough, but Catherine’s thorough, solution-oriented focus kept us on track. While competent and prompt, she was also very helpful and nice.”

    DON, Attorney

  • You are the best!

    “You are the best!! Already talked to my friend who referred me to you by the way…told her to send all business your way!!”

    DONNA, Vice President

  • I thank you repeatedly for your assistance in keeping my family together and healthy through all of this.

    “I want to take this time to write you a thanks and recognition for what we did together. It is clear to me that without your patience, understanding and expertise the whole experience of my divorce and subsequent legal situations would have been a disaster. My situation falls into the realm of remarkable, record setting, out of the ordinary, phenomenal, would you believe and no no, make it stop. We spent years, we were out spent, strapped with a undiagnosed psychological problem, and opposed by six different legal firms. I was self-employed, a single parent of a two year old, four other children and tired, very tired. Charges of sexual abuse, violence and hiding information were made repeatedly. Cathy through all of this, you remained professional, understanding and ready to bring the divorce and ensuing battles to a conclusion as soon as reasonably possible. Your insight and commitment are very much appreciated. Your patience with my misunderstandings and emotional needs remains a source of inspiration for me. I thank you repeatedly for your assistance in keeping my family together and healthy through all of this. I thank you for your friendship and especially your patience. I recommend you whenever someone is looking for assistance with family law needs. I recommend you as someone to consult with to determine if an attorney is needed. I recommend you for when a second opinions might be helpful in making difficult decisions. Thank You for all.”
