How she did it (even why she did it!) remains a mystery to me but I can tell you this. She did it and continues to do it to this very day because she loves it; loves it in a way that every elementary school kid at career day imagines loving what they will do when they grow up. Kathy considers every case personal. She becomes the person who she is fighting for. She really and truly listens to the grief that is inherent in divorce, to the fears that accompany breaking up a family, and to the wishes and dreams of the future for those with a past. She does all this with a meticulous and unapologetic deference to the law, the details of which she knows to a fault.
Kathy simultaneously manages to translate this learned field into a language that those of us who are not legal can understand and appreciate. She does so with humor, with kindness, and with a fighting spirit that belies her diminutive 5 foot frame.
Since my divorce was finalized, I have continued to communicate with Kathy on a regular basis. She has continued to prove herself to be a priceless resource with respect to parenting issues, raising kids, managing a challenging ex-spouse, and more. In addition to her experience in Family Law, Kathy has graciously assisted with employment, financial, and housing issues.
Kathy Karas-Pasciucco is not just another attorney. She is a brilliantly talented, tirelessly committed woman with a fierce sense of humor and a fighting spirit. I am enormously proud to call her my friend.
There are truly not enough words to adequately express my gratitude and ongoing thanks for Kathy Karas-Pasciucco. I met Kathy in September of 2012 and requested (well...demanded) “a quick divorce for not a lot of money that would keep me and my kids together.” It is a gross understatement to say that Kathy not only graciously took on my case, but somehow managed to deliver on my hastily dealt and wildly unrealistic demands. She had me divorced with the majority of my wish-list complete by January 2013.
