About me

Kate Welch was born and raised in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Kate moved to St. Petersburg, Florida to finish high school and then to Orlando to attend undergrad. She graduated from the University of Central Florida in just three years, with a B.A. in Political Science with a concentration in criminal justice. Throughout her life, Kate has always been a zealous advocate for those who needed a voice.

Kate then moved to Houston, Texas to attend South Texas College of Law for its nationally renowned advocacy program. During her three years at South Texas, Kate traveled around the country competing on the moot court advocacy teams, earned her certificate in mediation and passed the bar exam. 


Kate dedicates her practice to criminal defense work serving southeast Texas, including in Harris, Brazoria, Montgomery, Fort Bend, Waller and Galveston counties.  She believes that every person charged with a crime, regardless of the crime charged, deserves a zealous advocate. Kate believes that each client deserves to have an honest, hard working attorney in their corner.

  • Samuel D. Adamo

    I endorse this lawyer. I met Kate in the Harris County Courthouse elevator. At the time she was a brand new lawyer with a firm commitment to practice criminal law. I have followed her practice over the years and worked with her on cases and can say without reservation she is a fearless fighter for her clients. I know it wasn't easy being a young woman breaking into the male dominated world of criminal defense but she didn't shy away from the challenge and today is considered a top notch criminal defense attorney.

    Kate Welch is a force to be reckoned with in the courtroom. She stands up to fight for her clients when everyone else thinks the case is hopeless. She is a true defender of justice and the Constitution.
