Kate Whitlock has spent her entire career defending people accused of not doing their jobs right. Whatever the accusation, defendants trust she has their back. Kate works tirelessly to untangle complicated issues to protect our clients' reputations and livelihood. She aims to resolve litigation or disputes promptly so that her clients can get back to focusing on what they do best – their work.

A tactful negotiator and persuasive communicator, Kate is a force to be reckoned with in a courtroom or alternative dispute forum. She has tried more than 60 cases to verdict in state and federal courts. Her advocacy in the appellate courts is equally notable, often being hired by other lawyers after an unfavorable trial outcome. Most recently, she won a landmark case in the Georgia Supreme Court that changed how attorneys structure contracts for legal services. Outside of the courts, she represents clients in arbitration, mediation, and before licensing agencies. Her track record has earned her notable honors and widespread recognition by her peers.
Kate works tirelessly for her clients, appearing in state and federal trial courts, courts of appeal, and alternative dispute forums. She has tried more than 60 cases to verdict and taken many cases all the way through appeal. Embracing pandemic realities, she has tried a virtual bench trial and argued to the Georgia Supreme Court virtually, bringing home the win in the Supreme Court case.
She has received several professional honors, including AV Preeminent® (Peer Review Rated by Martindale-Hubbell®), America’s Top Lawyers (The American Law Society), and CLMP (Claims and Litigation Management Alliance). She speaks and writes on numerous subjects (professional malpractice, legal ethics, trial practice, products liability, premises liability). She's active in professional and civic organizations and enjoys her lawyer-husband of 30+ years, three non-lawyer children and two dogs.
