Kathryn Laflin focuses her practice on litigation pertaining to insurance coverage, product liability, real estate, commercial litigation and construction issues.

She particularly enjoys working on the more complex commercial litigation such as mass torts cases because of the intellectual challenges they present and the need to closely track all the involved parties and moving parts.

Kathryn relishes the chance to construct solid and well-thought-out legal arguments. She participates in a variety of litigation matters where she handles a wide array of complexities, involving parties, procedure, substantive law, evidentiary matters, and the conflict of laws. Clients and colleagues say that Kathryn’s passion and dedication to the law are evident in her practice.

Kathryn understands that life doesn’t stop when litigation occurs, and that clients have to balance multiple elements, such as remaining under budget, keeping their reputations intact, and resolving issues in a timely manner. Additionally, she respects the importance of keeping business relations among litigation parties cordial, as many times former adversaries must work together down the road.

Kathryn holds a J.D. from the University of Houston Law Center where she served as Articles Editor for the Houston Journal of International Law and Summer General Editor for the Harvard Journal of Public Law and Policy.  Kathryn was also a member of the Moot Court and Mock Trial Teams, and was a student teacher in the Street Law Program.

Away from the Office

In keeping with the firm’s commitment to community outreach, Kathryn volunteers weekly for local youth organizations, and is a member of the Junior League of Houston. Kathryn also enjoys traveling and exploring Houston.
