Katelin Gines is known for her passionate advocacy and trial law skills. Understanding her clients and recognizing how their harm has affected their lives is critical to her practice.
Katelin earned an undergraduate degree in political science and history at Utah State. Studying constitutional application and legal theory fed her dream of becoming a lawyer. She attended Drake University Law School as a first-generation student and graduated summa cum laude.
Katelin’s advocacy expressed itself in multiple ways: she was president of Drake Law Women, where she led the organization to expand philanthropy and outreach to help students in dire financial straits; she served as Junior Editor of the Drake Journal of Agriculture, later joining the Editorial Board as Projects Editor; and she represented clients as a student attorney through various legal clinics. In these clinics, Katelin discovered the value of truly listening to her clients, which equipped her to challenge multiple charges and get their misdemeanor charges dropped. She later clerked for a civil litigation firm, helping win multiple jury trials.
Her work at the civil litigation firm led Katelin to practice personal injury and employment discrimination law after graduation. It was through fighting for her clients that Katelin found that she had a passion for representing the victims of catastrophic injury and wrongful death claims; her discovery led her to Arnold & Itkin. Today, she’s following her passion for advocacy at one of the country’s top plaintiffs’ trial law firms.
When she’s not working on a case, Katelin attends plays, musicals, and concerts or takes her paddleboard out on the lake.
