About Katharine

Learn Katharine’s areas of practice.

Licensed in Washington and Idaho, my practice focuses on insurance defense, real estate transactions and litigation, civil rights litigation, and employment litigation. Whether representing business and corporate clients or individuals, my goal is to ensure that the legal problems my clients face are resolved in an efficient, effective, and economical manner. I believe that forthright communication between the attorney and client fosters a productive, long-term relationship.

I am originally from South Carolina and graduated from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, earning Dean's List and President's List honors. I moved to the Pacific Northwest to attend law school at Gonzaga University School of Law where I was a member of the 2013 National Moot Court team, earned CALI Excellence for the Future awards in Legal Research and Writing III and Trial Advocacy, and graduated cum laude. While in law school I was a law clerk at the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Washington and a summer associate at Paine Hamblen LLP. Currently, I am the President of the Leadership Coeur d'Alene class of 2016.
