Catherine defends claims related to product liability, exposure to toxic substances, and transportation-related injuries. She also litigates commercial issues such as contract disputes and as related to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

Catherine's numerous trial successes include prevailing on behalf of an insulation supplier in a case in which plaintiff claimed his mesothelioma was caused by defendant’s insulation. Her most recent defense verdict involved a career drywall installer. In both cases the jury was out for less than four hours. Happiest when she is standing in the well of a courtroom, Catherine handles matters directly in Illinois, Michigan and Missouri, and manages multi-state litigation as national coordinating and trial counsel.

In addition to her litigation practice, Catherine counsels clients in Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) issues, particularly as they arise throughout discovery and in resolution.
