About Me

Katy is drawn to trial work by the desire to make a tangible impact on the lives of her clients; fighting for their freedom, their rights, their families and their livelihood. She believes in helping her clients by educating them about their options, and working with them to reach their goals.


A Washington native, Katy graduated Cum Laude with a B.A. from the University of Washington in 2005. She spent her time traveling before returning to the University of Washington to obtain her degree in law and is fluent in Spanish.


During law school Katy worked at the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, Mediated in Small Claims Court, and gained experience in Family Law as a Rule 9 with Family Law CASA of King County representing the best interest of children in custody disputes.
