    Kathy represented me years ago when I got divorced. I had to go back to court for minor matter, and considered representing myself; I didn't want the expense of hiring a lawyer. I called Kathy, she recommended their a-la-carte services, where she would basically help me on a limited support basis. Thank God I did this!! Kathy reviewed all my forms and made many suggestions / updates. Without her help I would have had to re-file. She then walked me thru the process, prepared me for what to expect, warned me of pitfalls, etc. I was then able to represent myself effectively and confidently. The limited fees that I paid were well worth it; they saved me time and money. I recommend having her and her team review all situations and documents, especially financial docs, or issues involving kids. The process is confusing and overwealming, and she is truly an expert. Thank you again, Kathy!!!

    From the initial consultation until the final disposition of the case Kathy Boufford kept my totally updated and, I believe, brought about the best possible result for me. I absolutely thank her for her work and would, though I hope it never comes to pass, use her and her firm again.

    Kathy presents as an extremely experienced, knowledgeable and collected attorney. During a chaotic and stressful life event, having level-headed, calm, non-reactionary legal representation can make all the difference, and Kathy exemplified this. Kathy also has the ability to grasp more unique situations and more complex financial scenarios quickly, and integrate them into her overall strategy to secure as good an outcome as possible. I would say the only criticism would be one that is likely true of most successful attorneys, and that is she was sometimes less accessible than I would've liked. However, there was never a time that she didn't respond to me in a realistically timely fashion.

    Kathy has been wonderful. She has always advised me well, explained things thoroughly, and prepared me for what I could expect in court. I have always felt she is incredibly ethical, and very understanding and compassionate. I appreciate that she usually warns me about the worst case scenario, but also explains what we are hoping for, so I am prepared for either.

Her extensive knowledge and comprehensive attention to detail allowed an extremely harrowing and distressful situation to be managed with great efficiency.

    Kathy helped me through a difficult divorce. I always felt empowered and more confident after speaking with her and she never made me feel like my feelings or concerns were trivial. She was compassionate but also very honest regarding all likely outcomes. She was strong when it was hard for me to be strong. I am so grateful that I had her on my side during my divorce.

    I've been with Attorney Boufford for 12 years!! I came to her back in 2004 because the attorney I had at that time was taking me for a ride!! I was so pleased with her I hired her on the spot and never looked back!! I highly recommend her!!! She gets things done! I'm a firm believer you get what you pay for and she's worth every cent!
  • Praise for a-la-carte services

    I’m so glad I paid you to review my court forms for me.  This process is a pain.  You knew what wording to use, you found mistakes that I had made, etc.  I would have done it wrong and the clerk would have made me re-do it.  Well worth the price.

  • Praise for a-la-carte services

    Thank you for preparing me for my hearing. You walked me through the process with family relations so I knew what to expect. I had all my paperwork in order and ready. Because of you I was able to get a favorable recommendation and we were able to work out an agreement.

  • Praise for a-la-carte services

    I was so nervous about representing myself but could not afford the services of a lawyer. Your partial representation answered my prayers because I could get help with what I needed most without going into debt. I felt much better about my situation. Thank you.
