16 Years Selected to Super Lawyers
O’CATHAIN & O’CATHAIN, LLC
FOR 16 YEARS IN A ROW, WE’RE NAMED TO SUPER LAWYERS AND RISING STARS.
BUT DON’T HEAR IT FROM US— HEAR IT FROM OUR CLIENTS.
Matrimonial and Family Law
No one marries expecting to get divorced. Couples do not have children, either by birth or adoption, expecting to fi ght over which parent will live with the children. People in love do not expect to fall out of love, to fall in love with someone else, or to distrust the person they married.
But all of this happens … and, when it does, you need the right team to advocate for you. You need a combination of legal and business smarts, as well as the compassion to help you through this emotional ordeal. Hear what our client, Tony, has to say.
“Fighting over the custody of our adopted child was truly one of the hardest and most painful experiences of my life. Any parent understands that loving your child is a primal love and to have to go through a bitter dispute with my partner, someone I once loved, over the most precious part of my life was excruciating. The family law team was with me through the whole process: fighting for my child, crying with me, empathizing with me, and, in the end, celebrating with me as my now-husband and son and I have a full and rewarding life together.
Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice
When Naomi lost her daughter, she didn’t know where to turn. Some family members were urging her to talk to a lawyer. But she didn’t want money—she wanted answers. It would take four years to get answers to learn that it wasn’t one or two mistakes that caused the death, but a whole collapse of proper treatment. Naomi and her family wanted to know each and every mistake that was made. And that is what was done. It was the truest way to honor the memory of her daughter.
The case settled—the settlement was equal to the highest sustainable verdict in cases that had a similar tragic outcome.
“My sister was in the hospital hallway and screamed. From her high-pitched scream, I knew something had gone wrong, and that’s when they came in and said that she had passed.” Naomi recently said, when recalling the case, “The lawsuit settling gave me so much comfort. Not for the monetary settlement, but for my granddaughter, so that she would have documentation of what occurred, so that it will be some kind of comfort for her to know that the same day that she was born was the same day that her mother passed. So that was very important.”
It was our privilege that Naomi trusted us to tell her story and advocate for her. It can’t change what already happened, but it can help to build a brighter future for you and your family. We thank our clients for the trust they have placed in us, and we
thank the attorneys who continue to refer substantial personal injury cases to us.
DIVORCE. CUSTODY. PERSONAL INJURY.
