New Attorney: Kate Mulcahy
Kate grew up in Glens Falls, New York, and attended college at St. Lawrence University in Canton, New York. She was first introduced to Northern California when she did a college summer training program for Nordic ski in Truckee, CA. She fell in love with the area and returned in 2016 for a legal internship with the Family Resource Center, then again in 2018 after completing the Vermont Bar Exam. Over the Fourth of July weekend, she made yet another special memory in Nor Cal when her boyfriend proposed to her during a trail run at Tinker’s Knob.
She had already taken the bar exam in Vermont, but since she was planning on relocating to the West Coast, she took the California bar in February 2019 and moved to Truckee a few months later. Prior to joining Herrig & Vogt she coached for Auburn Ski Club and continues to spend her weekends coaching with ASC.
In her free time, she enjoys trail running (she’s eager to run all of the Strava segments in the area), strength training, watching The Office, reading, and writing.
The latter interests are part of what she loves about the legal field. She likes to read creative non-fiction and admires those with the ability to present the facts with some creativity. And while they may seem unrelated at first blush, Kate likes that being a lawyer allows her to both respect the structure that the law provides, and revel in the creative ways the law can be interpreted. Her admiration for novel ways of looking at the law is one of the reasons we find her to be such an asset to our team.
She has experience in municipal law, environmental land use, and real estate, and is looking forward to expanding her knowledge base to include areas such as construction litigation, and probate law.
