“Everything I do is for my clients. They are real people going through real life situations and they need help.”

As an immigrant to the United States, I went through the legal process of immigration along with my parents at the age of eight – we attended court and I was immediately attracted to the poise and style of the attorneys amidst the chaos of immigration court.

Later, at age 12, I was detained by immigration and separated from my mother in Puerto Rico on a return trip to the United States from Martinique. I was interrogated by immigration officers who threatened to return me to France, my birthplace, without my parents if I did not cooperate.

At such a young age, having experienced the feeling of helplessness without legal guidance, and having recalled my earlier positive impression of attorneys helping others, I devoted myself to pursuing a legal career, so as to represent people who needed a compassionate voice and sound legal guidance through unfamiliar and sometimes life-changing circumstances.

Soon after becoming a lawyer, I sought to join an intimate sized law firm that would provide the opportunity to concentrate on partnering closely with clients. I found this in The Law Offices of Katherine G. Houghton.

My practice areas include: Personal Injury; Brain Injury; Catastrophic Injury; Wrongful Death; Motor Vehicle Accidents and Injuries; Workers Compensation; Real Estate; Family Law; Divorce; Wills/Probate; Municipal Law; Auto Accidents, Slip and Fall, Dog Bites, Products Liability, Construction Accidents, Work Place Accidents

I am passionate about forming strong partnerships with my clients to:

  • Advocate on their behalf and in their best interests
  • Make them feel comfortable to contact or meet with me to discuss their case
  • Clearly understand their situation and goals
  • Consistently provide sound legal counsel
  • Pursue optimal legal remedies that provide them with satisfaction or amelioration of their pain and suffering
  • Keep them informed regarding all legal procedures and what to expect during the course of action to be pursued

When accidents occur as a result of someone else’s negligence, or a life event necessitates legal counsel, my clients deserve representation that will assure they are legally protected and/or fully compensated when justified.

Feel free to call me directly at 201-587-1414 to schedule a consultation to discuss your situation, legal options and goals.
