Catherine A. Curcio, a Member of the firm, focuses her practice on family law and real estate and land use.
Kate works with clients whose needs lie in all areas of family law, from inception to conclusion, including divorce, equitable distribution, property settlement agreements, custody, child and spousal support, and adoption. She participates in custody and support conferences, masters and de novo hearings, pre-trial and settlement conferences, and other hearings in Lehigh, Northampton, Monroe, Carbon, and Bucks Counties.
In addition to her family law practice, Kate handles residential and commercial real estate transactions, including conveyances, leasing, landlord and tenant matters, actions in partition and ejectment, actions to quiet title, municipal matters, and zoning and land use matters for public and private clients. Kate has represented real estate owners, both individuals and entities, and developers in a broad range of real estate transactions. She has appeared on behalf of clients before local zoning hearing boards and planning commissions. Kate has also assisted municipalities and municipal code enforcement officers in compliance hearings and has drafted, interpreted, and implemented ordinances regulating matters from property maintenance to life and safety measures.
Because of her dual practice areas, Kate is uniquely positioned to serve clients and address client needs that transcend a single area of the law. Her practice areas complement one another and often overlap in a multitude of ways.
Outside of her practice, Kate is Secretary of the Board of Directors of the Third Street Alliance for Women and Children, where she also serves on the executive committee and the development committee. Kate is a member of the Lafayette College Alumni Association and the Young Lawyers Division of the Northampton County Bar Association.
