Katherine D. Sheriff joined the firm in August 2017 as an Associate Attorney practicing in the areas of insurance defense and motor vehicle liability. Previously, Ms. Sheriff worked as a product liability attorney for a boutique law firm in Atlanta specializing in catastrophic injury litigation. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia. Ms. Sheriff received her law degree from Emory University School of Law in 2016 where she served as online editor for the Emory Law Journal and represented her graduating class as its State Bar of Georgia Young Lawyers Division Fellow.
