Cathleen was exactly the right mix of competence, tenacity and compassion during my very difficult divorce. In everything she suggested I knew she had my and my children’s best interests at heart. Her guidance was invaluable. She always gave me choice in how to ultimately proceed, and involved me in deciding which strategies to pursue. Her expertise and advice resulted in a fair settlement through mediation, and spared us all the emotional and financial toll of a trial. I would recommend her to anyone needing legal representation in a difficult matter.
Cathleen is a sharp and excellent attorney on many levels. She possesses keen trial skills as she has a comprehensive grasp of Utah's domestic case law, nuances and most recent changes to the law. She maintains an excellent reputation for credibility and professionalism among her peers and, importantly, with the judges. Her ethics are impeccable. In addition, she is dedicated to achieving the best results for her clients and carefully guides her clients through a difficult and emotional journey. She is a strong advocate, well grounded in the law and skillfully able to maneuver pre-trial litigation, negotiation, mediation, and trial. She knows when to compromise and she knows when to hold her ground. I recommend her unequivocally and without hesitation.
I have been working with Cathleen Gilbert since 2016. She is caring, knowledgeable, thorough, and competent. She cares about her clients and does her best to act on their behalf, while upholding the law. I work for a company that is court appointed as the conservator for incapacitated individuals who cannot speak for themselves. Cathleen has always fought for our clients’ best interests. She has fair and reasonable rates and does her best to keep costs at a minimum. She responds timely to any questions or concerns I might have. I have not always found this to be the case with other attorneys I have worked with. I have also worked with Cathleen on personal matters and would highly recommend her.
Cathleen Gilbert represented my siblings and me in a family dispute resulting in our successful appointment as guardian and conservator. She is highly professional, well connected in the law community and offers a personal touch to help families get through the most difficult of situations! Cathleen has a level of expertise and attention to detail which other attorneys lacked significantly in our case. Her follow-up and follow-through with all parties are second to none. In addition, I found Cathleen delightful to work with through a very sensitive family situation.
I highly recommend Cathleen Gilbert. She is an honest, conscientious, knowledgeable, ethical, experienced attorney. Cathleen drew up our will and helped us with our estate plan, guiding us through the difficult process. Her knowledge and experience were invaluable as we set up trusts to best provide for our children and grandchildren. She had many suggestions that we never would have known about. She continues to help us update our plan as laws and our lives change. Cathleen also helped my parents, who had a will that was over 20 years old. There were many things wrong with the old will that she corrected. This prevented many problems that we would have encountered had we not hired her. Four years ago, when we found out my elderly father was a victim of scammers, Cathleen guided us through the conservatorship process. We were blindsided with what these predators were doing and had no idea where to turn. With her help we were able to stop them from draining his accounts and protect his interests. Her expertise in guiding us through the legal system has been invaluable. Cathleen is one of those rare people who really cares. She responds quickly to any questions and takes quick action when needed. Her communications are precise and beautifully written. We have worked with other attorneys, but none compare with Cathleen’s expertise.
A coworker suggested that I retain Cathleen Gilbert to represent me in my divorce after she heard about the troubles I had with my first attorney. This being my first divorce, I was unsure of the process, what was required of me, what the timelines looked like, etc. When I moved over to Gilbert Law, I felt like I could finally inhale again, the weight was lifted off my chest. Cathleen explained the process to me in simple English. Cathleen was always accessible and, although I know she has other clients, I felt like all her attention was directed towards me. My divorce was a bit contentious and we resolved it in mediation, Cathleen was willing and able to take the matter as far as it needed to go in order for my interests to be protected. I 100% recommend Cathleen Gilbert to anyone looking to resolve a family matter.
