Kathleen’s focus is on medical malpractice, personal injury, and other complex cases. She is known for the thoroughness she brings to each of her cases, and the compassion and empathy she has for each of her clients.
Kathleen has obtained numerous precedent-setting and multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements, including a $58 Million verdict, the largest medical malpractice verdict in Connecticut history, for a Norwalk family whose son suffered a birth injury that resulted in cerebral palsy. Recently, she won a $12.3 Million verdict for the family of a 5-year-old girl who drowned at the Waterbury Boys & Girls Club.
Whether through her commitment to provide the best possible representation to her clients, or her fierce conviction to do whatever she can to protect the civil justice system, Kathleen’s goal is always to make a difference. In 2017, Kathleen was elected President of the American Association of Justice, and she continues to serve on the Association’s Board of Governors. She has also held numerous leadership positions with Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association (CTLA), including becoming its first woman president in 2003, and is on the editorial board of CTLA’s Forum Magazine.
