Over two decades ago, Katherine Blackmon Carroll flung open the doors of her family law practice, hit the ground running, and has not slowed down since. “I sometimes get exhausted,” she said, “but then I run into a former client, see the kids and the difference we made in their lives, and I’m reminded of why we do what we do.”

What Katherine and her firm does is a unique and integrated approach to family law. As a certified holistic health coach and life coach, not only has she passionately and fearlessly represented multitudes of clients, she has also held countless hands, dried (and cried) more than her fair share of tears, and ushered many a client down a path of healing and self-growth. “There is so much more to a divorce or custody matter than the letter of the law — your rapport with and faith in your attorney impacts both the journey and the outcome of your case,” she said. “I work with the whole person to achieve an outcome that allows my clients to move forward, healthily and happily, into the next phase of life.”
Katherine’s clients describe her as “a Godsend,” “an amazing advocate,” “ethical, compassionate, and intelligent,” “a pit-bull,” and “fierce.” In the words of one former client, “Not only did she represent my children and me zealously, the angle from which she fought our case was nothing short of brilliant. She is fiercely loyal and truly cares about her clients, which seems to be a rarity these days. She was always quick to respond to me or talk me off a ledge, when needed. In my opinion, better representation can’t be found.”
In response, Katherine’s mantra is simple and heartfelt, “This is why we do what we do.”
