Working with Katelyn is a dream. Highly intelligent, organized, and always positive. It is easy to see Katelyn always looks out for the very best for her clients. She has been a wonderful partner over the years.

~Jim Perkins, Executive Vice President and Chief Relationship Officer of Corporate Creations

Katelyn became my corporate attorney because of the professionalism and genuine care I’ve received from her since 2014. She was there at the very beginning; creating the “legal-ease” for my website, developing my contracts, and putting my fears to rest. She continues to have my best interests in mind and explains things so I fully understand my options. Her follow-up is timely and on point as well.

She always makes the process incredibly easy and friendly for anyone, especially if you are not familiar with legal terminology, processes and more. Scope of work is always clearly communicated and timelines are strongly adhered to for all needs. We strongly recommend her services.

I found Katelyn to be exceptionally knowledgeable, trustworthy and professional. She is thorough and methodical with her work and her responsiveness to her clients is unmatched. I look forward to continuing our working relationship with Katelyn at Harbour Business Law.
