    Attorney Profile

    Attorney Kate McChrystal is a partner with Gagne McChrystal De Lorenzo & Burghardt law firm in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. A top-rated, award-winning attorney with nearly 10 years of legal experience, Ms. McChrystal focuses her practice solely on family law, and she provides unmatched counsel and support to clients throughout the greater Milwaukee metro and surrounding areas who have legal needs involving any of the following:

    ·       Divorce and legal separation

    ·       Spousal maintenance

    ·       Child custody and placement

    ·       Child support

    ·       Paternity and parental rights

    ·       Post-judgment modifications

    ·       Visitation, child relocation and parent coordination

    ·       Pre and postnuptial agreements

    ·       Mediation, collaborative law and ADR

    As an attorney, Ms. McChrystal prefers to use mediation, collaboration and other alternative dispute resolution techniques to help her clients resolve their conflicts and reach agreements in a manner that is far more efficient and economical and less adversarial than traditional divorce litigation. However, she also has extensive trial experience and will not hesitate to take her clients' matters to court when necessary.

    Whether inside or outside the courtroom, Ms. McChrystal remains a steadfast advocate for her clients' rights and best interests, as well as those of their children, and she has served as court-appointed guardian ad litem in numerous contentious child custody proceedings. She also handles many mediation cases through her practice and serves as a parent coordinator.

    Honored for her outstanding professionalism and service, Ms. McChrystal has earned consistent top rankings and endorsements from her peers, and she received the Howard B. Eisenberg Service Award for her selfless pro bono service. In addition, she has received five-star reviews and many testimonials and referrals from her clients, and she finds great reward in being able to assist so many in her area during what is a very difficult and uncertain time in their lives.

    A graduate of the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Ms. McChrystal obtained her Juris Doctor cum laude from Marquette University Law School in 2010. Prior to becoming an attorney, she was an educator and taught children at many levels from preschool to middle school. She credits this experience with bolstering her ability to connect with her clients' children and help them understand and better accept their parents' divorces.

    An active participant in her legal community, Ms. McChrystal is a member of the State Bar of Wisconsin, the Milwaukee Bar Association, the Association of Women Lawyers and the Leander J. Foley Matrimonial American Inns of Court. She also serves on the board of the Society of Family Lawyers.

    Ms. McChrystal routinely volunteers with the Marquette Volunteer Legal Clinic and the Milwaukee Justice Center. She also serves as president of the Junior Board of the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin, and she is a member of the Marquette Law School board of recent graduates.
