Attorney Young is the most experienced unemployment lawyer in Knoxville, Tennessee. She understands almost every aspect of the workings of the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development and knows exactly what needs to be done to prevail on appeal of an Agency decision. She's both precise and thorough, and I can't say enough about her skills as an attorney. I went into my unemployment appeal owing the Agency over $21,000, and when it was over that amount was reduced to just $306. She performed magnificently the entire time and I would definitely use her again if the situation arises. She has my highest recommendation!
Working with Ms. Young was truly a relief. I did not know that I was executor to an estate and my husband is active duty USAF. We live in Germany and the deceased was in Tennessee. Ms. Young turned this challenging time into almost a breeze with her counsel, advice, and compassion. It was not easy losing this family member, but added to that is other difficult family members, living in a different country and time zone, with unreliable snail mail. I had so many sleepless nights. Ms. Young assuaged all my worry and gave me sound advice expeditiously. I cannot recommend her enough. When we move back to Tennessee, she will definitely be our family attorney.
"Katherine is a excellent attorney. She represented me in a legal matter. Katherine not only knows the law but cares about her clients. She kept me informed and explained everything to me in terms I could understand. Katherine also helped my husband and I draw up our wills, living wills and all documents we needed to insure our estate was left exactly the way we wanted. She made sure every detail was taken care of per our wishes. Katherine is an honest, hardworking, knowledgeable attorney. I would highly recommend her!"
"I had Mrs. Young take my case and she did an excellent job. We won. Thanks so much."
"I could not have won without you and thanks for restoring my faith in people and the justice system a few notches."
"Tenacious. That is the best word to describe her. She works very hard for her clients! She worked to make the best of a very complex set of issues, resulting in a settlement for me."
" Professional, precise and she knows the law. She made the process as pleasant as possible and was on top of things."
"I first hired attorney Katherine Young to create a will, living will, and durable power of attorney for health care. From the very beginning it was obvious to me that Ms. Young's primary motivation is excellence in practice... providing the very best possible legal advice and assistance to meet her client's needs. At a later time, as the executor of a deceased friend's will and being retired with a lot of time on my hands, I thought I would be able to handle the probate of the estate by myself. When things got too complicated I turned to Katherine Young again. She readily assessed the situation, summed up what remained to be done, and outlined a plan for completion. Her knowledge and experience, combined with her calm and confident demeanor, inspired my trust and I turned everything over to her with total peace of mind. Ms. Young kept me apprised of her progress, kept a detailed record, sent me copies of everything she did, and was very quick to respond to my questions. She is awesome and I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone."
