Meet Catherine Becker Good, Massachusetts Divorce Attorney
When a professional who I completely look up to and respect and trust tells me about another professional who in her words is “a really smart, trustworthy, amazing divorce attorney,” I am immediately interesting in having a conversation with that person. That’s what happened with Catherine Becker Good. Catherine is a Massachusetts divorce attorney who has been practicing law for 30 years.
In my pursuit to bring trustworthy, experienced divorce professional resources to the DGS community, I am proud to add Catherine to the DGS partner team. Let’s start with her website. The quote under Catherine’s name reads, “I treat every client as if they are my only client.” I loved that because from someone who went through a divorce and oftentimes felt like “just another case” to my attorneys, this is very important to me.
Catherine has a wonderful and warm personality. She is a mother of two adult children, who understands that mother-child bond and the importance of financial support and a custody schedule that feels right to a parent. She is experienced in divorce litigation, and has appeared before many of the judges and staff in her area. But Catherine is also passionate about her clients mediating the divorce if that seems possible.
Catherine has also practiced law in other areas, including wills and estate planning, so if you need a new will and trust after your divorce is final, Catherine can help with that, as well!
I am so excited and proud to be working with Catherine!
