Offit Kurman’s Director of Business Development, Jim Ries, sits downs with Family Law principal-level attorney, Kate McQueen, to discuss her practice. About half of her practice is all about divorce from prenups to property settlements and the other half focuses on guardianship. When it comes to guardianship work, it’s really important to have someone help you out so that you make the best possible decision.
ABOUT KATE MCQUEEN
Catherine H. “Kate” McQueen is a family lawyer and principal in Offit Kurman’s Bethesda office and is licensed to practice in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. Ms. McQueen focuses her practice on the many legal issues that impact families, including all the issues arising out of a divorce, such as custody, child support, alimony, and other financial and property issues. She also has extensive experience in guardianship matters for children and incapacitated adults, including assisting clients in petitioning for guardianship, serving as court-appointed counsel for alleged disabled persons, and serving as court-appointed guardian for individuals when their family members or friends are unwilling or unable to do so.
