Katherine W. Trotter was born and raised in Tennessee. She graduated from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in 2005 with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies and a minor in Theatre. In 2007, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Katherine was honored to attend Loyola University New Orleans College of Law and be a part of the city’s rebirth. While at Loyola, Katherine was a member of the Loyola Trial Advocacy Program through which she competed nationally and became a member of the Order of Barristers. She received her Juris Doctor in 2010 and has called New Orleans home ever since.

Prior to joining Perrier Lacoste, Katherine served as counsel for insurance carriers, businesses, and individuals in the fields of personal auto-injury, construction defect, property damage, premise liability, and toxic tort litigation in state and federal courts throughout Louisiana. She has extensive experience in arbitration and has regularly handled construction defect claims representing contractors and design professionals. She is licensed and admitted to practice in all Louisiana state courts and in the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern, Middle, and Western Districts of Louisiana. She is a member of the Federal Bar Association, the Louisiana State Bar Association, the New Orleans Bar Association, the Louisiana Association of Defense Counsel, and the New Orleans Association of Defense Counsel.

Katherine loves traveling, being in nature, seeing live music, cooking, and most of all, spending time with loved ones, including her hound dogs, Hank and Jerry Lee.
