Dallas, TX – McCathern, PLLC is pleased to announce that Partner Kathryn L. Pruitt has been named to the 2017 Edition of Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer review publication in the legal profession.

Best Lawyers has published their list for over three decades, earning the respect of the profession, the media, and the public as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals. Its first international list was published in 2006 and since then has grown to provide lists in over 70 countries.

Best Lawyers is the most effective tool in identifying critical legal expertise,” said CEO Steven Naifeh. “Inclusion on this list shows that an attorney is respected by her peers for professional success.”

Lawyers on the Best Lawyers in America list are divided by geographic region and practice areas. They are reviewed by their peers on the basis of professional expertise, and undergo an authentication process to make sure they are in current practice and in good standing.

Kathryn joined McCathern’s Dallas office in January 2017 to lead the firm’s Family Law practice group. She will help open the firm’s Frisco office at The Star when it opens later this year.

Kathryn is an experienced family law attorney who is highly regarded by clients and colleagues alike. Her extensive knowledge, thorough preparation and practical approach produce sensible, cost-effective and lasting solutions for her clients.

She is Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, a distinguished mark of practice area knowledge and experience that is held by less than 1% of lawyers in Texas. Kathryn has practiced law since 1993 and focused on family law since 2004.

Kathryn is both trial-tested and a skilled negotiator — one who is always prepared to advocate aggressively in court if a fair agreement cannot be reached through negotiation or mediation. This personal approach enables her to develop legal strategies that are uniquely suited to each client’s individual needs.
