Meet Kate

Kate was born and raised in a small town in southeast Ohio.

She then received her juris doctor from the Cumberland School of Law at Samford University. While in law school, Kate was the associate justice of the Moot Court Board, a member of the National Moot Court Team and Treasurer of Phi Alpha Delta.

Before starting her own law firm, Kate was an attorney at the Browne House Law Group here in Tuscaloosa.

Our Values & Beliefs

Criminal defense-only law firm

At this law firm – criminal defense is our specialty and our only practice area. Your case won’t be lost among other cases like divorces, car wrecks and bankruptcy. 

You are in charge

You’re the boss. The purpose of hiring an attorney is for knowledge and counsel, but ultimately, only you can decide how to resolve your case. 

Frequent updates

Clients stay constantly updated about their case via their preferred communication method. 

Straight-forward legal fees

You will never receive a surprise bill from your lawyer. The fee will be quoted up front and that fee will cover your case from beginning to end. Some limited payment plans are available.


If I’m not the lawyer for you, I will help you find a lawyer who is a better match.

Legal Philosophy

My philosophy in practicing law is that no one should have to navigate the courthouse by themselves. My mission is to assist individuals and families navigate one of the most stressful times of their lives.

Whether this is your first involvement with the criminal justice system, or you have a long rap sheet, you deserve to have someone by your side who will stand up for your rights.
