Citizens of this nation, irrespective of race, religion, ethnicity, economic standing, sexual orientation, or any other broad classification, are born with certain, guaranteed, inalienable rights. Unfortunately, these rights can be unlawfully violated – sometimes even by those expected to uphold them. We have dedicated our work to protecting those whose rights and interests have been threatened, while seeking justice against those who would threaten them.


In 2006, I was charged with a crime that carried a life sentence. Kate was my public defender and she worked the case non-stop, around the clock. She was professional and focused on what mattered the most.

Some people find their calling in life and that is the case with Kate. I will forever be grateful for her hard work that showed the truth to the jury and set me free. She is a great person and an excellent lawyer. My freedom mattered to her the same way it mattered to me.
