Cathy Steele Tappel has focused her all of her 30+ years of practicing law in Family Law. She has an emphasis on parenting cases, within the context of a divorce, with clients who have never married but have children together, and post-divorce parenting issues. She has long been an advocate for parents. She has historically worked within a large family law firm, as a sole practitioner, and ultimately has found that practicing at Navigate Law Group is the perfect size and fit for the care of her clients.
