As both a trial court and appellate court attorney, Catherine brings valuable perspective to her appeals practice. Her significant experience in the appellate courts in the State of Washington includes over 30 appeals (and counting) during her career. She also maintains a full practice at the trial court level, including both motions practice and trial work. As few appellate attorneys have any trial experience, her practice gives her a unique level of expertise and insight.
Catherine’s appearances in the appellate courts in the State of Washington include the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, the Washington State Supreme Court, and the Washington Court of Appeals. She also served as a law clerk for the Washington State Supreme Court for the Hon. Robert F. Brachtenbach from 1991 to 1992.
In 2014, after an application and vetting process, Catherine was admitted to the Washington Appellate Lawyers Association, a Specialty Bar Association in Washington State.
