Attorney Katie Woodford believes that it is a common misconception that women have an advantage in divorce and custody cases. To the contrary, the role of “wife” and “mother” can sometimes create a disadvantage. Many women find themselves in situations where they have given up their careers to raise children and take care of a household, only to be abruptly forced to support themselves and their family after a breakup. The most rewarding aspect of Katie’s career is providing women with peace of mind by empowering them with knowledge of the law and options for their future.
