Work Experience & Achievements

Katie has successfully litigated numerous matters involving contractual disputes, insurance coverage, and personal injury negligence cases. Recently, Katie received a substantial jury verdict for her client in a contested car wreck case. The judgment was more than 250% higher than what the at-fault driver’s insurance company was offering.

In May 2017, Katie and Josh tried a car crash case against Allstate. Allstate refused to fairly pay for the damages their insured driver caused. After presenting compelling evidence and testimony, a jury returned a verdict for more than $101,000. Allstate’s highest pre-trial offer was $9,500.00.

In March 2018, Katie and Josh tried a week long jury trial against State Farm. Prior to trial State Farm offered to pay $2,000 to fix our client’s water damaged home. A Bexar County jury returned a verdict for more than $201,000.
