Since starting my legal career over 25 years ago, I have been committed to assisting Mendocino County, California, residents. My focus is on legal matters surrounding criminal charges and related civil matters. I bring honesty, integrity and a genuine concern for my clients' well-being to each case. One of my highest values is clear and straightforward communication regarding expectations, time frames and costs from your initial consultation through the end of your case.

A Personalized, Client-Centered Approach
When a lawyer takes a case, it is important for him or her to first listen and get to know the client in order to best serve the client's needs. This is why, from the outset, I spend the time required to clearly understand the circumstances and the clients' goals. I want those I work with to have no doubts that I have their best interests in mind and am on their side.
Clear, Direct Communication
Clear and direct client communication is one of the values of my practice. Clients want a criminal law attorney who won't play games and will be upfront and honest about their situations. For instance, fees are one of the most concerning areas for clients. I understand the concern, which is why I am committed to fair and reasonable charges and will do my best to estimate future costs. This is especially important when I work with clients with mental health issues, or while working in juvenile criminal law.
My Personal Values
I am passionate about the work I do, from crime defense to DUI defense to post-conviction relief. One of the founding values of my practices is that people can change and that if they are given a chance and some help, they can resolve any problem — it doesn't matter if the problem surrounds drugs, alcohol or violence.
For me, being a lawyer is not about providing disconnected legal services. Instead I focus on providing each person I work with a solid forward-focused framework.
From relatively minor drug infractions to serious criminal charges, I can work to ensure your rights are protected and that you are fairly treated under the law. For a free initial consultation, contact the Law Office of Katharine L. Elliott at 707-468-1600.
