Profile

Experience

As an experienced civil litigator and former prosecutor, Katie has worked closely with law enforcement officers and multiple agencies during criminal investigations.  Her practice currently focuses on tort and business litigation, including instituting actions for personal injury, wrongful death, negligence and gross negligence, fraud, and unfair and deceptive trade practices.

Katie has been an active member of North Carolina Advocates for Justice since 2014 and served on the Auto Torts Executive Committee since 2020.  She has also been invited to speak to classes at Wake Forest School of Law on topics of trial practice, administrative law, and occupational licensure defense.

About Katie

Before joining our firm in 2017, Katie was an associate at Twiggs Strickland & Rabenau, PA, which was a nationally respected law firm known for litigating wrongful death and catastrophic personal injury cases.

Immediately out of law school, Katie worked as an Assistant District Attorney in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.  There she tried dozens of bench trials in both District and Superior Court.  Katie led both felony and misdemeanor prosecutions.  It was as an ADA that Katie first gained experience with accident reconstruction techniques and the prosecution of misdemeanor death by motor vehicle charges.  Katie was also a member of the office’s first Animal Cruelty Task Force.

Community

Katie recently finished her term as President of the Washington Square Homeowners Association, during which time the Board oversaw the largest renovation and restoration project in recent years.  Katie has been active in charity events with the Triangle Greyhound Society (which has now merged with Greyhound Friends) and was previously an active member of the Alexander Family YMCA.  Katie formerly volunteered as a U-12 girls soccer coach.  Katie also enjoys playing league tennis, yoga, and biking along the Neuse River.
