Katelin Gines


Attorney Katelin Gines

Katelin Gines is known for her passionate advocacy and trial law skills. For her, understanding her clients and recognizing the ways in which their harm has affected their lives is key to being a good lawyer.

Katelin earned an undergrad degree in political science and history at Utah State. Her study of constitutional application and legal theory fed her dream to become 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 on 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. It was in these clinics that 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 top plaintiffs’ trial law firms in the country.

When she’s not working on a case, Katelin attends plays, musicals, and concerts or takes her paddleboard out on the lake.
