Kathleen’s involvement in community service influenced her decision to go to law school. She previously studied social work and volunteered for local organizations that support survivors of domestic violence, food banks and youth programs. She’s always looked out for other people’s rights, especially those in more marginalized populations. Her practice is built on a belief that advocacy, selflessness and kindness can change the trajectory of someone’s life.
As a member of the firm’s General Liability Service Group, Kathleen represents insureds in a range of litigation matters. She defends homeowners, landlords, and business owners against lawsuits filed on theories of negligence, dog bites, nuisance, premises liability and respondent superior.
Kathleen served as a political delegate in local and state conventions during college and was a lobbyist. Her lobbying contributed to the successful passage of two bills in the state legislature. Her experience in politics and her background in social work helped inform her understanding of the law and its application well before law school.
