About Katie

Katie practices exclusively in family law, to include dissolution of marriage actions, post-decree modification of parental responsibility cases, child support actions, and relocation matters. Katie believes it is the role of the family law attorney to implement expert problem solving skills to deescalate conflict and attain negotiated resolutions.  However, for those cases that require litigation, Katie is well-prepared to bring the matter to court.

Katie obtained her Juris Doctor from the University of Colorado Law School and holds a B.A. in Psychology from Texas Tech University. Katie’s psychology degree gives her insight into the emotional turmoil that so often surrounds family law cases such that she meets her clients’ needs with compassion and understanding.  Katie has a background in Health Law, receiving her Health Law Certificate from the University of Colorado Law School and working as a student attorney for the Colorado Health Equity Project.  Katie developed strong legal research and writing skills in her role as the Resource Editor on the Colorado Law Review, a prestigious position.  In addition, Katie trained in Motions Practice and Advanced Trial Practice under the instruction of Colorado Supreme Court Chief Justice Nancy Rice.

Katie’s background additionally includes family law training as a student law clerk at Woody Law Firm, where she also worked as an associate attorney following her Bar licensure with the State of Colorado.  Katie is as an active member of the Family Law Section of the Colorado Bar Association and provides pro bono legal services as a volunteer attorney for Metro Volunteer Lawyers.
