We Have Years of Experience In and Out of the Courtroom
Another reason you can feel confident in your decision to work with us is that we have the level of experience that you’re looking for. Indeed, you don’t want to hire an attorney who is just beginning to refine their legal skills – your case shouldn’t be “practice” for anyone. Instead, you want an attorney who knows the law, the court system, and the best strategies for securing positive outcomes for clients’ cases.
Attorney Ruth L. Cate of The Cate Law Firm began practicing law when she moved to Spartanburg in 1977, providing her four decades of experience in her field. This experience includes investigations and discovery processes, negotiations, exposure to all the unexpected left turns a case could take and, of course, litigation. Her experience and success has earned her an AV Preeminent rating from Martindale Hubbell, the highest rating awarded by that organization.
Attorney Ruth Cate isn’t the only member of our legal team who shines. Attorney Rachel Brough has been named as a Martindale Hubbell Client Champion Gold, and Attorney Margaret Nowell has been recognized by the Spartanburg County Bar Association for her outstanding legal work, and was chosen to receive the C. Bruce Littlejohn Young Lawyer Award.
Compassion and Respect Are the Foundation of Our Legal Practice
When you work with The Cate Law Firm, P.A., you will be working with experienced family and trial attorneys who have been recognized and praised for their efforts. But you will also be working with people who are spouses and parents themselves, who believe that compassion and respect are especially important in client representation.
When you work with us, we will truly listen to you, and will work hard to ensure you understand all of your options and what we believe to be the best strategy for your case. We never take a cookie-cutter approach, but instead treat you how we would want to be treated, and we customize our approach for each individual case. Throughout the process, if you need anything, our attorneys and paralegals will be available to answer questions about your case and help you feel comfortable in your choice to work with us.
We Are Not Afraid to Fight for You
At The Cate Law Firm, P.A., we take the time to figure out exactly what your case demands, and we consider all elements therein. While we do always prioritize mediation and working with other parties to reach a settlement that works for everyone out of court, we are not intimidated by the idea of going to court, and will fight for you in court if that’s what it takes to resolve your family law matter fairly. We never want you to have to compromise on the things that matter to you most.
