Partner at Barrett & Farahany
Kathy Harrington Sullivan is a Partner at Barrett & Farahany who helps potential clients understand the law, clarify their rights, and determine which steps they can take to protect themselves and their jobs. She believes knowledge is power and that is why she and her team of lawyers strive to empower employees who think they are victims of illegal workplace actions.
Responsiveness is a hallmark of Kathy's law practice. Clients feel that they are heard and receive personal attention during what can be a difficult time.
