Katherine E. Hollist, personal injury attorney

Katherine E. Hollist


Kate helps clients achieve their litigation goals by utilizing pre-litigation resolution opportunities, advocating for their interests, and providing key legal analysis. She has worked on behalf of both defendants and plaintiffs in matters involving personal injury, negligence, premises liability, products liability, and aviation law.

Since joining Gallagher & Kennedy, Kate has helped her clients achieve a number of favorable outcomes—both by preparing the cases for trial, arbitration, or mediation and by using pre-litigation tools to resolve the case before it starts.

Kate writes and lectures on current trends in technology law. Her work has been relied upon by numerous subsequent scholars.

Kate’s passion for this subject has equipped her to address technological nuances in her clients’ cases, as well as to take advantage of the latest technological capabilities during discovery.

She earned her J.D. from University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law, where she graduated summa cum laude and was ranked third in her class. While in law school, Kate won the school’s annual writing competition twice, tied for first in the school’s annual moot court competition, and earned the title of Regional Champion as a member of the school’s national ABA moot court competition team.
