  • David Charles Snell

    I have heard Kathleen speak at a myriad of seminars and CLEs, beginning shortly after her career at the Walthew Firm started, and I have co-chaired various programs with her. As a fellow workers comp practicioner, I can truly say she is one of the smartest, hard working comp lawyers in the state. She is a tireless advocate for the injured and disabled.
