Experienced, organized, professional and extremely helpful

When I started the divorce I was so lost about everything but she was experienced, organized, professional and extremely helpful. She did not waste time and was easy to talk to thru the process. Would recommend her to others in a heart beat!

First consultation with Trish, was all business. When we started the process in the court i felt my attorney was there to give the petitioner what ever she wanted. I didn't have a voice in front of the commissioner.

I felt a touch and I mean just a tiny bit of disappointment in the fact that the week before the final court date I felt like I was on an island being bombarded with paperwork and illustrations – half of which were variations on final scenarios. I wish I could have had a chance to discuss what they all meant before they were sent to me. This feeling had a lot to do with the fact that Katy had a trial the week before and she needed to focus on that. Not upset – it's an honest reality that happens. As a crazy work schedule funeral director I know exactly how the chaos feels and I am guilty of doing the same – priority is what and who is directly in front of me rather than who is up next week. Divorce sucks and it isn't easy and life goes on after. That was the biggest complaint that was really no ones fault. Katy was super awesome and met with me whenever I felt like I was drowning and needed clarification on issues. I would highly recommend sterling to anyone needing your services. All of the staff that I encountered was awesome. The biggest reason I scored the way I did was the feeling of being alone on a deserted island being smothered by paperwork that to me didn't make much sense because of all the feelings swirling around in the giant pool in my head and a personal love of the number 7…(yes I'm a dork – but it's honestly my lucky number). Lastly – I have to thank you both for everything that you ladies helped me with. I emailed Katy about a month after the finalization and told her that I was able to refinance the house and the girls and I are happier than we have ever been. And just to prove hell does freeze over – Erik and I have been getting along good and I've let go of All the shit that he has said and done before and after the divorce (yes that was a HUGE pill to swallow) but the girls need parents who can be civil and even a bit happy when around each other. They need happy parents who can even bring new partners around each other and the kids at the same time. Life is to short to hold grudges and it's such a waste of energy to hate the father of my girls – without him I wouldn't have them. I wish you and Katy all the best you two were amazing. And I'm still not upset about the transition from you to Katy's caseload. ???? Thank you for everything Becky Osse P.s. I would give you a 9 – it's just that I like the number 7 better so I used that…lol

I have mixed feelings. I've had both good and bad experiences. I like my lawyer and at times I feel like my case really matters. Other times I feel like I'm forgotten about. I thought my case would've been done and resolved months ago and it's taking much longer than expected. Maybe that's normal but certainly not what I expected.

Tremendous response time

When someone does an inquiry the response time is tremendous. I referred a friend and she was able to set something up. It was nice. In fact the best part was your office was not able to assist and referred her else where which was commendable. My friend was so happy with the all around experience.

About Kathryn Eckhardt

Attorney Kathryn Eckhardt enjoys the rules and finding the solution to a problem. When you're a girl with two older, rowdier brothers, it's important to know how to utilize both in arguments and family roundtables.

As it turns out, bringing the swift hand of justice down on a couple of beloved siblings developed into a passion for law.

Kathryn does not just see the law as a way to punish, but an essential tool to help others in times of need. When people need support, she's there to lend a helping hand through the complex legal system.

She remembers how it feels to get help when life throws you a curveball. When she was in middle school, her life was turned upside down when her dad was in a serious accident at work. She recalls how overwhelming it was for her family to navigate medical bills, insurance, and the legal landscape while taking care of her dad.

But what Kathryn remembers the most about that time is the helpers. When times got tough, people were always around to make sure she and her family were okay and to provide guidance.

Kathryn is ready to be that person for her clients. Her experiences transformed a passion for the rule of law into a mission to help others. To her, the law is a light in a dark time and a way to provide stability in a difficult time.

An Illinois native, Kathryn started her career in Chicago handling divorce, post-judgment, child custody, and child support cases. Due to meeting her future husband, a Wisconsin native, in law school, it was only a matter of time until she moved with him to Packer Country to be closer to family and start a new life.

The move didn't slow her down. In Milwaukee, she continued helping people going through family law matters by managing the Qualified Domestic Relations Order Department for Divorce Financial Solutions, LLC.

Now, having gained insight into the financial side of divorce, she is back helping families directly as an attorney at Sterling Law Offices. Not content to stop there, Kathryn is also a certified Collaborative Lawyer and Mediator ready to assist people by bringing them together to the table.

When she's not on the case, Kathryn might be found hitting the links or running road races with her husband and son. Her tireless dedication, in both life and her work, makes her a formidable presence in the courtroom.
