Katherine was a great support during a difficult period in my life with a work related matter. Her professionalism, sound advice, honesty and authenticity was clear during our first meeting. From there we developed a trusting and open relationship which helped to guide me through some challenging conversations with my employer. She was always accessible and available to provide advice and regularly checked in on my wellbeing. Her empathy and genuine caring approach was reassuring and really helped me to remain calm and balanced through a stressful time for my family. I am so grateful for Katherine’s support which helped me move forward with my life and the next exciting chapter in my career. I would highly recommend Katherine for anyone needing legal advice and wanting an honest, genuine and caring lawyer on your team!

We have worked with Coulter Roache for our legal matters for the past five years. Our most recent matter has been dealt with by Katherine Hayes who at all times has communicated with expertise, clarity and when required humor. I would have no hesitation in recommending Katherine to anyone needing legal advice in her areas of expertise, she is generous in her time and has made us feel like we have been supported in our desire to resolve our matter.
