About Kate

Learn Kate’s areas of practice.

  • I am attorney Kate Yeager Delk, and I have been working in Tennessee's justice system for more than 11 years. I represent individuals defending their rights and protecting their futures.
    Prior to opening my own practice, I prosecuted cases in the 21st Judicial District (Hickman, Lewis, Perry, and Williamson counties) for 10 years. I tried numerous cases over those 10 years and know what it takes to prove a case beyond a reasonable doubt. Also, as a former prosecutor, I negotiated thousands of cases, and I know how the other side thinks. This unique perspective means I can help protect my clients - both today and in the future. My experience means I know how hard it is for defendants to protect themselves and their rights and how important an experienced attorney is. 

    After graduating from Washington and Lee School of Law, I clerked for the Court of Criminal Appeals under Judge Tommy Woodall. As one of his two Law Clerks, I researched numerous criminal law issues and drafted opinions.

Great results
I hired Kate Delk and was extremely pleased with her representation. She will break down all of the potential scenarios in your case, while making you feel respected and taken care of. She was a prosecutor for many years, and she knows the lawyers prosecuting your case. She also has the total and complete perspective of both sides of the case, prosecutor and defense attorney. In my humble opinion, with all other things being equal, you need the lawyer with the best relationships with the other side. This is Mrs. Delk. Add onto that her friendliness, professionalism, and knowledge of the law and she is an obvious choice. I went to court today and received the best realistic outcome I could have expected. I believe that my choice of lawyer had a lot to do with this

Amazing strong-minded women
Kate was very important in helping my son navigate the system. We are from a different state and found ourselves in uncharted waters. I called five attorneys who were all wanting unreasonable retainers and suggesting unreasonable options for my sons situation. Kate saved the day! She is honest- and is fair in her fee's and billings. She understood the system and really fought for my son while being respectful and setting a great example. I appreciate a strong women like Kate and ANYONE that is in need of an attorney can use someone like her. She is amazing! We could not have even come close to getting this resolved without her expertise and work ethic.

Awesome Reliable and Aggressive Attorney
First I want to make clear I was a client of Kate Delk. Mrs Delk is an honest and an aggressive lawyer. Mrs Delk was contacted by me on a Sunday and was readily available to discuss my case even though I lived out of state. After sending some documentation via email to her, she discussed a plan of attack on the case. Mrs Delk hit the ground running first thing the next morning and by that afternoon had my charges dismissed and rescinded. Mrs Delk is a caring, easy to talk to attorney, and will fight aggressively for you. You will not feel as if your case is not important ,because to her it is. If you need a fast acting attorney, I highly recommend Kate Yeager Del. You will not regret the decision.
