About me

I focus my practice on family law matters. I represent clients in paternity, divorce and legal separation actions and I accept judicial Guardian ad Litem appointments. I am qualified to address issues of property division, child custody and placement, child and family support, maintenance and domestic violence.  I am also well versed in the various methods of alternative dispute resolution available to my clients.


I am a member of the American Bar Association, State Bar of Wisconsin, the Justinian Society of Lawyers, the Divorce Cooperation Institute, the Collaborative Family Law Council of Wisconsin, the Eastern District of Wisconsin Bar Association, and the Milwaukee and Waukesha County Bar Associations.


I practice primarily  in Waukesha, Milwaukee, Jefferson, Dodge, Walworth and Washington counties.


I was voted a Super Lawyers "Rising Star" in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.

  • Teri M. Nelson

    Kate is a wonderful lawyer. She is a dedicated advocate for her clients and she works hard to resolve her cases in a way that is fair and reasonable. She is knowledgeable about family law and her care and concern for her clients is evident. She is a pleasure to work with. If I cannot take a case myself, she is always one of the attorneys to whom I refer the client.
