Practice Areas

At the Law Office of Charlene Cathcart, we are able to provide you with the legal counsel and representation you need in a broad range of legal issues, including personal injury cases, criminal and municipal court defense, tax law and family law matters such as divorce. We approach every client with a goal of offering them the most personalized, high quality work that accomplishes their goals and brings them the outcome they seek.

Personal Injury

We tend to think of the legal system as being there to protect us from criminals, but civil law and personal injury provide us with a way of taking on those who cause serious injury – or even death – as a result of negligence, recklessness, or disregard. As an experienced personal injury attorney, Charlene Cathcart will protect your legal rights and fight for the compensation you deserve for the injury that you’ve suffered.

Criminal and Municipal Court

Whether you’re facing a speeding ticket, a DUI/DWI charge, an accusation of assault or any other minor violation of the criminal code, you need a strong and competent defense attorney to stand up for your rights and make sure that you have an effective defense. We work hard to have charges dismissed wherever possible, as well as to negotiate favorable plea bargains when a guilty plea makes more sense. Pleading guilty to a traffic violation can impact your freedom to drive and your insurance rates, and a criminal conviction can reduce your chances of getting the education or job that you need. We work hard to provide you with the result that provides you with the best possible outcome. Charlene Cathcart also has Superior Court experience representing clients facing indictable offenses.

Tax Law

There are few things more stressful then getting a letter from the IRS, especially when it says that you owe money. At the Law Office of Charlene Cathcart, we will take the time to review all of the charges against you as well as your own documentation, working to find the best resolution to your taxation problem in order to minimize fines and penalties and allow you to move on with your life.


Ending a marriage can be one of life’s most challenging and painful events, but when you have a competent, experienced attorney working on your side, it provides a greater sense of control and understanding. Charlene Cathcart has extensive experience in negotiating property distribution issues, child custody and support in a way that protects you and your interests.
