Passionate about fighting for others, Trial Attorney Katelin Gines advocates for her clients with conviction and skill. She understands the devastation that results from a catastrophic injury and focuses on making her clients whole.
"Being a lawyer is more than just understanding the law and the process. It is a commitment to our clients that we will be with them every step of the way. We will work harder and longer than others to ensure our clients receive the justice they deserve."
Katelin attended Utah State University, where she studied history and political science with the goal of pursuing a law degree. She used her political science minor to focus on constitutional application and legal theory, which solidified her decision to dedicate her career to the law.
Katelin attended Drake University Law School as a first-generation law student, gradating summa cum laude. She was extremely passionate about advocating for others throughout law school.

During law school, Katelin focused her studies on litigation and how to vigorously advocate for clients. She honed her litigation skills through various clinics where she represented clients charged with misdemeanors. Through her dedication and uncommon ability to understand her clients, Katelin was able to successfully challenge multiple charges, resulting in dismissals. Katelin clerked for a civil litigation law firm and participated in multiple jury trials, getting favorable verdicts for her clients.
After graduating, Katelin continued to pursue her passion for litigation. She focused on personal injury and employment discrimination, fighting for those who suffered severe injustice. While advocating for her clients, Katelin found her passion for catastrophic injury, wrongful death, and product defect cases.
