Katherine Wilcox Carter
Katherine joined the Hofheimer Family Law Firm in 2011. A lifetime resident of Hampton Roads, Katie grew up in Newport News, Virginia, where her family owns Wilcox Bait & Tackle, an outdoor sporting goods store. She graduated from Menchville High School in 2004, where she swam and played field hockey. After high school, she attended Lynchburg College in Lynchburg, Virginia, where she got her B.A. in Political Science and English and graduated with highest honors. She is a member of Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority, and worked with the AmeriCorps through the Bonner Leaders program. From there, she attended law school at West Virginia University. Working with the family law clinic at WVU, Katie found her love of family law.
After graduating from law school, Katie returned to Hampton Roads and started working with Hofheimer Family Law. She took on two roles: attorney and marketer. She quickly realized that she could combine her lifelong love of writing with her knowledge of the law through the firm’s marketing efforts, and started by keeping up the firm’s online presence through posting blog entries, articles, and press releases. She has also represented a number of women in their divorce and custody disputes, and particularly enjoys custody cases.
Katie and her husband, Jonathan, a tug boat captain and part time charter boat fisherman, live in Newport News, with their son, Will, their daughter, Louisa, and two (nearly) perfect Labrador retrievers, Sally and Cash. Together, Katie and Jonathan spend a lot of time outdoors hunting, fishing, boating, and playing with their kids. Katie also loves running, reading, and drinking Virginia wine.
Though we can’t guarantee results, and every case is different, we’ve had some pretty happy clients over the years!
Knowledgeable and Empathetic
She was knowledgeable and empathetic to my situation. She presented the necessary information clearly for a complex situation.
I received detailed information that I have had difficulty getting elsewhere
Katie exceeded my expectations! She listened, she answered all my questions and provided information that didn’t know I needed. I am know more confident that I will be ok after divorce. She genuinely showed me that she cared about me and my well being. She didn’t withhold information and I am now better prepared to move forward.
Knowledgable in Family Law
Katie struck me as knowledgeable in family law. I appreciated her expression of empathy and am certain she will act in my best interest. I like that you only represent women.
One Hundred Percent Geared Towards a Woman and Her Needs
Katie was very warm. She was able to answer the questions that I had in a way that was easy for me to understand. It was almost strange to be associated with a professional entity that was 100% geared towards a woman and her needs. Even the directions to your law firm was extremely female oriented. Good job!
Allayed my concerns
Katie listened and was supportive. The consult allayed many of my concerns and affirmed much of what I thought I already knew. She was clear, knowledgeable and advising.
