Recently named by Latino Leaders Magazine as one of the top 50 Latino lawyers in the country, Katherine concentrates her practice on defending clients against product liability claims, with particular focus on automotive and medical device products. Katherine is versed in all aspects of litigation and enjoys working with clients to create practical yet innovative solutions, carefully tailored to each case.
Katherine’s experience drives her practice as a passionate and effective litigator. She has taken and defended well over 100 depositions; appeared as lead and second-chair trial counsel on cases in justice courts, state court, and federal court; successfully defended against motions to compel burdensome discovery and motions to strike expert witnesses; authored and argued numerous successful motions to dismiss and motions for summary judgment at the state and federal level; and served as counsel on two discovery teams for domestic and foreign automotive manufacturers.
When not advocating for her clients in court, Katherine enjoys spending time with her husband and their three dogs, cooking, and traveling (particularly to Chicago, where she enjoys eating deep-dish pizza from Giordano’s).
