"Outstanding attorney and person, with limitless potential in any area she chooses to pursue, Katie has all of the right character attributes to be more than merely a solid professional, but instead will make a superior counselor and advisor to any business of any size, to include managing litigation, or getting in court herself to ensure the right outcome for her client. Truly in the top 1% of all attorneys with whom I have ever worked. If I were building a legal team, be it for In House or for protracted, complex litigation, for my own law firm, whatever: I would have Katie Butler as one of my top three picks. Work ethic is second-to-none, native intelligence is extraordinary, ability to work an issue through is superior, and willingness to continue to improve, learn, and get better inheres to her personality. Someone will have a steal when they hire Katie for their cause, case, or company, no matter the price."
