Cathy was recommended by a friend and hiring her was the best thing I could have possibly done. An ugly divorce from a person who has several personal issues could have train wrecked my life but Cathy would not let that happen. She is kind and patient and she really cares about you as a person. To her, you are not another case, you are a friend in need of help. And that’s what she does, she helps. I unfortunately had to see Cathy a few times in the courtroom and when I did she was very impressive! She is like Tom Brady in the 2:00 minute drill. She was prepared, focused, smart and plays chess while the others are playing checkers. No matter what your situation is, Cathy will make it better. I am so happy I found Cathy Herrington Hale, and you will be too.  A.W.

I was very lucky to have Cathy’s counsel during this process. I particularly love the themes around introspection (including as to our own personal accountability in the marriage failing - a harder, more humbling task than assigning 100% of the blame to the ex!), and not sweating the small stuff. And, learning that happiness is a DIY job - no husband, career, car, or anything else external can give that to you OR take it from you! From the depths of misery during those first months of weekends without your children, you can build a beautiful, different, more authentic life in which you own and are proud of your history, including how you handled yourself during the divorce process.   M.P.


I have known Cathy Herrington for more than 20 years. I worked directly with her professionally, and have also worked with her as a client with SEVERAL family members whom I referred over the years. She is an incredible attorney and a caring individual. Having worked in the legal field literally my whole life, I am not one who gives professional referrals often, however, Cathy is definitely the exception to the rule. HIGHLY recommend.  R.E.


My husband and I had to switch attorneys right before trial when fighting for custody of our granddaughter. Cathy stepped up to the plate and took over as if she had been working the case from the start. She took our case to trial and we won custody which is not easy for grandparents to do! She is a brilliant attorney who knows the law. Cathy is sincerely passionate and cares about your case and situation. She is very comfortable to talk with about difficult situations and she makes you feel comfortable during trial, the time when you need it most. I would highly recommend Cathy for anyone seeking a family law attorney. You will not be disappointed.  M.L.


Cathy was a fantastic asset to us as our attorney in a child support dispute. She was very professional got the desired result we (Husband & I) wanted. She’s honest and will not sugar coat what in her knowledge and experience will happen.  R.C.


I just finished divorcing my husband of 46 years, and cannot imagine having done it without The Herrington Law Firm. Cathy Herrington Hale is compassionate and brilliant in the courtroom. The judge awarded me more than I was told to expect. Her staff is well trained and wonderfully communicative. I always knew what was happening and what was going to come. Working with this firm made this terrible experience bearable and now I feel prepared to face my future with confidence and financial security.  S.

I hired Cathy to be my divorce lawyer and I remain grateful for her everyday! My world fell apart and I was frantically trying to find a divorce lawyer; a dear friend recommended Cathy. I got in touch with her and she took my desperate call one night. She spent an hour on the phone with me. She listened and gave her honest opinion of my situation. I had contacted several other lawyers before her and the fit just wasn't right. I liked what she had to say, she didn't push me, and the next day I retained her as my lawyer. I met with her for the first time the following week and within a minute of meeting her I knew I had made the right choice. I could immediately tell that she was not only very intelligent, but I also loved her energy, her personality, and I could tell that she really cared about me as a client. Cathy was very mindful about how much things were costing me. She would explain options to me, but would also explain that it may not be worth the cost in the long run. This was really important to me as well; I really appreciated that about her. Another thing that stood out to me was how fast Cathy could process and create a new plan when situations changed. Knowing that my lawyer was at the top of her game and well respected in the legal community really put my mind at ease. It was quite impressive to see her in action in the courtroom. I knew that no matter what came our way she could handle it. I liked that it was a small office so it didn't take me long to get to know the staff there and for them to get to know me. I had a lot of interaction with her paralegal David. He is nothing short of amazing. Throughout this whole divorce process there was so much uncertainty, but one thing I know for sure is that because I had Cathy as my lawyer I got the best outcome possible. I learned my lesson. Pre-nup next time. Will hire Cathy for that too!  Anonymous client.
