  • Catherine went beyond meeting my expectation as I'm not a very trusting person to start with.

    “This was a very hard process for me and Catherine could see that from the start. She took the time to see me as a person first before we even discussed my divorce. Catherine stayed in contact with me and made sure all my interest were considered & met with every careful decision. Catherine went beyond meeting my expectation as I'm not a very trusting person to start with. I'm not sure I would have been able to complete this process without her guidance. She did all she said she would do & never left my side in moments of doubt. I will be forever grateful to her for giving me my life back peacefully through the legal system. Thank you, Catherine White! My Champion Lawyer!!!”

  • Experienced, Knowledgeable, Professional, Affordable and Compassionate Divorce Lawyer

    “After calling several law firms and getting poor responses and some were even rude and just about the money. I decided to try one more law firm- The Catherine M. White Law Offices. And I was glad that I did. Catherine is a great Lawyer. Not only is she professional and knowledgeable but, she is also compassionate and has a bubbly personality. She made a very stressful time in my life peaceful. From the 1st call to the last she has been kind and understanding. She made it very easy for me to trust her and went above and beyond to ensure the best results for me. She understood my pain. One of the things that stood out to me was, I called her on a Saturday night and she picked up...she listened to me and she gave me sound advise. She was not annoyed that I called her outside of her business hours, instead she was overly concerned. This is something you don't get from other law firms. I know she has many clients but she still managed to make me feel like I was her only client and and always gave me the VIP treatment. I appreciate her and have great respect for her. Trust me when I say you will not regret hiring her. Thank you Catherine! God bless you tremendously!”

  • Catherine White helped me make sense of everything and was always there to give me answers to my questions the entire way through the process.

    “In the beginning, I was very confused and upset with everything going on with my x. Catherine White helped me make sense of everything and was always there to give me answers to my questions the entire way through the process. She may not have responded right away but I always heard back within a day. My case was probably her longest because my x and her attorney would miss court and took around a year and a half to reach the end. I've never delt with an attorney for anything like this before and wish I'd have done it in the beginning. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend Catherine White to any of my friends or family. And I thank you, Catherine White, for all you have done for me.”

  • Catherine White is more than a good attorney, she is a very decent and compassionate professional who really cares about the welfare of her clients and their families.

    “I was, at least initially, a very unwilling defendant in a divorce that was filed almost 2 years ago; the divorce was granted almost 2 weeks ago. I say at least initially, because I came to welcome the divorce, largely due to the profoundly nasty and irrational approach to the divorce my ex wife and her legal team chose to pursue. To say that I was unprepared for the level of vitriol and the legal procedures involved would be a major understatement. I had no idea what to do and I basically depended on my mom's husband to guide me through much of the early stages of this ordeal and that included selecting Catherine White as my attorney. She was referred to us via another attorney and upon reading reviews for her, we opted to retain her services. Again, I knew almost nothing about divorce law or what this process would entail. When I first met Catherine, I was a sobbing, emotional wreck of a man. I couldn't accept the impending reality that I was losing my wife and my family as I had known and lived with for over 14 years. In addition to common and required legal counsel, she offered, what seemed at the time, conciliatory words of comfort, encouragement and predictions regarding the outcome of my divorce and personal life, that at that time, I couldn't even imagine. Catherine White proved herself to be an experienced and very knowledgable divorce attorney that was confident and deliberate when addressing my interests with the opposing counsel, the GAL, magistrate and judge. However, her guidance and counsel that transcended mere legal issues are what I am so impressed with and grateful for. Her words and actions were well beyond conciliatory, and she proved herself to sincerely care for me and try to help me get a grip on, and ultimately rebuild my life. She shared countless experiences from past clients and anecdotal references from her personal life in an effort to convince me that I would, at the very least: attain shared legal custody of my children; that my children would gravitate towards me; that I could and would "move on" with my life; that I would receive a fair outcome. I should point out that she never said it would be easy or that I would walk away from this totally satisfied, no "BS" from her, in other words. With that said, she and I prevailed against a very hostile team of lawyers and a vicious plaintiff that was hell-bent on destroying me. Moreover, I had to endure a biased GAL, who consistently represented my ex wife's interests by taking her accusations and concerns as fact without even attempting to vet their validity. I was stunned to find out that a GAL had the legal authority to treat conjecture and accusations from a hostile and disgruntled plaintiff as fact, which ultimately framed the GAL's narrative about me in a negative manner. I also did not receive, in my opinion, fair treatment from the magistrate who wrote our temporary orders. The temporary orders really hurt me financially and ultimately lead to the prolonging of my divorce. The magistrate created a scenario where a speedy end to the marriage was not in the plaintiff's interest. The eventual financial settlement saved me approximately $1,200 a month. Catherine never waned in her support of mine or my children's interests. Via her expertise and guidance, we prevailed against 3 contempt charges and numerous motions and of course, the ultimate outcome which went in my favor in every way. Catherine was right about everything from our initial meeting, all the way through the end. I will forever be grateful for what she did for me and my children. Catherine White is more than a good attorney, she is a very decent and compassionate professional who really cares about the welfare of her clients and their families. It is without any hesitation or reservation that I recommend Catherine White for someone who seeks counsel for family court.”

  • I would very much recommend her as a wonderful attorney who cares about her clients.

    “I retained Catherine White after my daughter passed away unexpectedly. My minor granddaughter needed a guardian as her father had died 14 months prior to her mother. Catherine was very helpful and understanding even though this was an emotional time for our family she was compassionate and took control and suggested the best course of action and within a matter of weeks had paperwork, court appointments and an Agreed Entry signed by the Judge and kept me in the loop the whole time. I would very much recommend her as a wonderful attorney who cares about her clients.”

  • Catherine was consistent and always acted in the best interests of my children (even when my emotions got the best of me) and for that I am very grateful.

    “Catherine is an exceptional attorney that has been practicing long enough to have firsthand experience with almost all situations of domestic dispute. She was able to see through most of noise created by the opposing party and their counsel to focus on what really mattered, the children. At times I was frustrated because she told me the truth instead of what I wanted to hear but this is what I needed. Catherine was consistent and always acted in the best interests of my children (even when my emotions got the best of me) and for that I am very grateful. My case was settled without going to trial and I am VERY happy with the results.”

  • Catherine White is the most passionate attorney that I have ever had the privilege of working with on my case.

    “Catherine White is the most passionate attorney that I have ever had the privilege of working with on my case. My case involved me fighting for visitation rights with my natural born son. My present wife and I found Catherine and made an appointment to explain the case. I was fighting to be an active parent in my son’s life. My son’s mother (ex-wife) was preventing me from being involved in my child’s life for ongoing 6 years. After explaining my story to Catherine she stated you have a right to see you child and you should be in his life. She went to court and fought passionately for me to have the right to be a father to my son. I strongly believe young males need to have a father in their life that loves him and wants to be a dad to them and so does Attorney Catherine White. I highly recommend Catherine White! She will fight for you!”

  • She is a hard-working attorney that prides herself in providing good sound legal representation at a very reasonable price.

    “We have hired and rehired Ms. Catherine White a total of 3 times over the course of 8 years to represent us regarding our granddaughter. Each time we have used Ms. White we were putting our most precious grandchild’s future care, education in her very knowledgeable and capable hands. From the experiences we have had with Catherine over the years we would never trust any other attorney to get us the results we deemed necessary to raise a healthy, happy and safe child. She is a hard-working attorney that prides herself in providing good sound legal representation at a very reasonable price. She is more concerned with helping her clients rather than fattening her bank account with money. Don’t get me wrong she is out to make a living. She just isn’t out to bleed her clients dry of their hard earned money to fatten her bank account. She believes in an honest days work for an honest days pay. To bad other attorneys and firms don’t stand up and take notice and then model themselves after this honest and hard working attorney.”

  • She's a compassionate lawyer that truly cares about her clients and keeps you focused on what's really important.

    “Catherine really cares about her clients- even more so, she cares about the children. I loved that even though there can be many emotional/mudslinging aspects in divorce- she was compassionate and even though there were derogatory comments being made about me, by my ex, she simply reminded me that "it's not relevant in court." While I still have to pay him alimony, she got him to settle and avoided a trial. I've worked hard for where I am, I was medically retired from the military, and the sheer fact that the person I was married to for nearly 15 years was simply after money in the end, I am free. My kids have a long healing road ahead, as do I, but even later that night of the final court date and the following day, Catherine called to check on me and see how I was doing. She's a compassionate lawyer that truly cares about her clients and keeps you focused on what's really important. God sent me an angel during a season when I needed her!”

  • She's very fair with her pricing, has the drive to keep fighting for you, an I couldn't have chosen a better person for the job.

    “Well I served in the Armed forces and was just getting out. Excited to be with my wife and my son again. I got out and moved in with her and her parents until I could get a job and our own place once again. Being reunited with my wife wasn't exactly what I had expected, no hugs, no affection, like she was a stranger. Now I would work all day to come home with my wife accusing me of hurting my little boy. Everyday was the same, just another accusation toward me. This went on and on for about a year. She had started keeping my boy away from me, never letting us play together as a father and son should. Then she moved all her things out of our bedroom, and then I finally realised that something was going on, but I didn't know what exactly. After many failed attempts of trying to talk, they eventually kicked me out and my wife said that her and my son were staying. So I got a place for myself. I was lost, didn't know what to do, where to start...so I contacted Catherine to file for Divorce. I explained everything to her and what they accused me of. I just wanted to see my boy again. Catherine took my case for a low cost because she understood my situation and said you need to see your son. Oddly soon after, my wife filed a civil protection order against me. I couldn't be near her or my boy at all. I thought I had lost. But Catherine was there for me. She explained things, an guided me through everything. She focused on me and my boy. Eventually the day came where we had a trial on my civil protection order. My "wife" sat and told me how evil and horrible I was, and rattled off a multitude of outlandish accusations about me for over an hour. Then Catherine spoke up and before I even got an opportunity to speak the judge threw out the case entirely and it was dismissed. Thanks to Catherine I had won the Protection order trial. This was a huge victory for me. Soon thereafter I was seeing my boy a little at a time. Catherine continued to fight and file for me to see my son more and more. I went from not seeing my son at all, to having him for weekend visits, so that I could be a father again. Every time I had any questions or concerns Catherine was right there for me. This entire case took over a year, and she was with me every step of the way. Now with our divorce finalized and having agreed upon a parenting plan, I am much happier. I now spend time with my son. I would highly recommend Catherine to anyone going through this situation. She's very fair with her pricing, has the drive to keep fighting for you, an I couldn't have chosen a better person for the job. Divorce can be very ugly, and confusing...but I couldn't think of anyone better to help you through what I'll call...The fog of War.”

  • Unparalleled Professional and Courteous Service!

    “When I first met with Catherine, (She wouldn't allow for me to call her Mrs. White) she spent a great amount of time with me giving me honest professional opinions on how things would play out in the end. I didn't feel like I was meeting with a typical Attorney. She made me feel at ease every step of the way. I felt more like I was meeting with a family member that had a law degree. She gave me straight forward answers every step of the way. Not many attorneys will give you their cell phone number and if they do, answering your call is an entirely different story. Several times she answered the phone while she was at the Courthouse. She was available for me just about any time I needed her for reassurance. Most of our meetings were conducted sitting on a couch in a quaint office downtown without the stuffy feeling of sitting at a conference room in a busy office. She has a very sweet and caring disposition but also has the innate ability to put her foot down and demand respect when dealing with opposition. Clearly she is not one to be pushed around in a Court of Law. My case was very complicated and involved dealing with my ex-wife that was charged with an OMVI and 3 counts of child endangerment while transporting my 7, 5, & 3 year old children. It was by far one of the most traumatic events in my life and protecting my children from further harm was my first priority. She had a genuine concern for the safety of the children and my well-being. She often shared experiences about other clients with similar situations and it was very clear that she was very emotionally involved in those individuals. She takes a very genuine and caring approach to her clients. Her results and ethical approach when dealing with clients and opposition speak for themselves. I would recommend her to ANYONE. I can honestly say that my children are more safe today than they were a few short months ago. Thanks for all that you did Catherine!!”

  • Catherine was always honest and upfront with me, even if it wasn't what I necessarily wanted to hear. She is extremely knowledgeable, caring, honest, and passionate.

    “Once I learned that my son had been a victim of severe abuse, neglect, and endangerment, I clearly realized I was going to file for custody of him. It all started when the boyfriend of my ex-wife died of a drug overdose in their home in front of my child. 3 weeks later my son disclosed to me that one of the sons of the babysitter whom his mother had been taking him to for 2 years had molested him for the greater part of a year. I knew that my ex had issues but I never thought she would of put our son in harms way. And I later learned that she knew he was in harms way because she was aware that the oldest of the 3 sons that lived with the babysitter is a registered sex offender. As one can imagine, I was in panic mode. I spent many evenings after work searching for a good attorney through referrals and the web. And that's when I came across Catherine's website. Her site was the first thing that drew me in, and it did because I was able to fully relate to the content on her site as a father looking to gain custody of their child. Her site is informative, explanatory, and clear in her intent in wanting to genuinely help those in need of legal family law assistance. I called and we set up our initial consultation. At first meeting her, she was warm, inviting, and she helped put my mind at ease. After disclosing all that I had learned, we quickly moved forward as she explained the process, court proceedings/hearings, and what to expect as things progressed. We initially filed for emergency custody which we were denied. But at least filing initiated the process and it got negotiations started. As we pressed forward Catherine made sure that not only I was well informed in all that was occurring, she was available to me for any questions or concerns in a relatively timely manner. If I ever needed anything explained, or just wanted to talk, she was always there. Patient and thorough, Catherine always took the time to not only answer all my questions, but she always had an ear to lend. In over the course of 15 months, we had 5 to 7 hearings. Catherine was very involved with the entire process including speaking with and or emailing with all parties including the opposing party's attorney and the Guardian ad litem. She would always check in with me at least a few days before every hearing to make sure we were both well informed and on the same page. She always made me feel like she had mine and my sons best interest in mind. In the end, not only did she help me attain a better understanding of parents rights, I was able to also obtain a better understanding of the legal system. Catherine was always honest and upfront with me, even if it wasn't what I necessarily wanted to hear. She is extremely knowledgeable, caring, honest, and passionate. It's attorneys like her who not only represent parents and their rights fairly, but she does it because she truly loves what she does. She was also more than fair in her fees as well. I am happy to say that I was granted full custody of my son. And I owe so much of it to Catherine and her representation. I'm forever grateful for her.”

    “She told me it would all work out and it did. The family court process is long and often runs its course. Everything happened just as Catherine said it would and I would recommend her to anyone. I hugged her as I walked out of the courtroom. She told me she didn't understand why all of her clients hug her instead of shaking her hand. It's because she leaves you feeling that good. She respects you. You will never feel embarrassed or ashamed. She is really that good. She is smart, well spoken and really that good.”

I've had issues of my ex getting an OVI picking up our children, she's failed every drug test she's taken, and shes not having the kids go to school or turn in assignments. Due to the attendance, children's services is now involved. Due to my exs actions, I am also at fault since I'm the father.

  • I appreciated her support and belief in me when I struggled so hard

    “I was able to have my case completely handled by phone, email, text and computer technology with my custody and divorce proceeding. Catherine worked well with me and I recommend as any client should keep in touch and document well. Catherine White was fair, logical and gave me the ugly truth when I was in a bad situation with my ex-husband. She encouraged me and always showed patience even when I was in the anger stage of my situation. She helped my situation easily since financially it was a major burden to have to travel back and forth, luckily, I did not have to leave my state! I was very happy with the outcome of my family situation and her service. I would recommend Catherine White to anyone in Ohio or out of state, but remember, you have to do your part as far as keeping in contact and being available. I appreciated her support and belief in me when I struggled so hard when all I wanted to do was move on and be a happy mom for my son.”

I did not treat her well and she showed up to save the day time and time again. I would recommend her to everyone who asks me for a good divorce lawyer.

  • Ms. Catherine is an honest, sincere, experienced, knowledgeable, confident and passionate attorney who will always speak the truth and will fight for truth.

    “First time I met Ms. Catherine was for free consultation of a divorce case. The moment I met Ms. Catherine I knew she is my Attorney. I immediately hired her to represent my case. I am so glad that I made that decision. I and my wife is going to a rough marriage and My wife was insisting on divorce papers, so I asked Ms. Catherine to make me Separation Agreement and shared parenting plan. My wife now refuses to sign the papers and wanted me to file a divorce in court and get her notice served. When I told this to Ms. Catherine, She was like not a problem let’s do it. Ms. Catherine guided me and helped me at every step to understand the entire procedure. She gave great advice, and at time even played the role of friend and therapist. Ms. Catherine is very responsive to my calls, questions and concerns. All issues are handled professionally and timely. She is very flexible and when needed she had also called me outside her business hours to make sure my concerns are addressed by her on time. Ms. Catherine is an honest, sincere, experienced, knowledgeable, confident and passionate attorney who will always speak the truth and will fight for truth. My case is scheduled for Pre-Trial and I am confident with Ms. Catherine as my Attorney, I have absolute No fear. Ms. Catherine is simply outstanding!
