Catherine is a trial attorney with over 14 years of civil litigation experience including handling catastrophic, high exposure injury cases on both the plaintiff and defense side. She is a passionate and diligent litigator that understands the complex dynamics of high stakes New York civil cases. Catherine’s experience on both sides of a lawsuit provides her with the unique ability to efficiently resolve claims and maximize our clients’ financial recovery through settlement, mediation, and trial. She has taken multiple cases to verdict, has several published appellate division decisions, and has had speaking engagements and publications around the country regarding strategic and ethical civil litigation. She was also named as a “Rising Star” in litigation in 2021, a distinction earned by only 2.5% of attorneys in the state. That distinction earned her the honor of being named one of the top women attorneys in the New York Metro Area in 2022.

Catherine was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, and is a first-generation Italian American. She attended James Madison High School in Brooklyn, New York, where she learned how to be a trial attorney through mock trials in the Ruth Bader Ginsburg courtroom, an ode to James Madison High School’s famous alumna.
