A San Francisco native and accomplished California-licensed attorney with over 20 years of successful complex discovery and litigation experience, I use the law to provide protection from creditor harassment and advise on strategies to achieve the best outcome for each situation.
I handle Chapter 7 and chapter 13 bankruptcy matters from pre-filing planning through discharge and post discharge litigation. I have litigated in administrative hearings, motions, and trials, and have conducted extensive discovery and hundreds of depositions.
My work has included drafting numerous motions, briefs and interrogatories. I’m a detail oriented, organized and innovative positive thinker who also sees the entire picture.
Admitted to practice in California, the United States District Court for the Northern District and the United States Tax Court.
In addition to the law I’ve investigated and practiced many disciplines to improve and maintain mental acuity, capacity, clarity, quickness and flexibility. From this decade long exploration grew the Save Your Brain Seminars and CD for attorneys.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
I fully endorse Cate. She was opposing counsel on a matter that, to say the least, had plenty of moving parts. She handled each with skill and professionalism, and demonstrated how she advocates on behalf of her clients with dignity, respect, and sound judgment.
Robert Fordiani Employment and labor Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I would recommend Catherine as one of the very best bankruptcy attorneys in the region. She is a member of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys. This group is dedicated to representing the individual, spouses and small "Mom and Pop" businesses. She, and the NACBA members take a stand against creditor abuse. She will be a great choice of a bankruptcy attorney. You won't be disappointed!
Gary Fraley Chapter 7 bankruptcy Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Private reproval, public disclosure means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar warns the lawyer in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
