Kate Neugent has spent her entire legal career in family law, utilizing her strong work ethic and honest approach to protect the interests of her clients and their families. Kate represents clients in all areas of family law, including but not limited to divorce, paternity, third-party visitation, prenuptial agreements, guardian ad litem work, mediation, and arbitration.
Kate’s approach begins with an honest discussion of the client’s goals, the potential options, and outcomes and what clients can expect from her as their lawyer. Family law is often emotionally driven and highly contentious. If strong emotions arise, Kate is highly skilled at addressing her client’s immediate needs while helping them stay focused and move forward towards their established goals
Kate is respected among her peers in the legal community for her professionalism. Her clients appreciate her compassion, understanding and respectful treatment, and have ranked her as a top attorney in the area of client satisfaction.

“In family law, it is important to choose your battles wisely, and not let emotions and contention dictate your actions. A good attorney is not one who litigates all issues, but the right issues.”
