Katherine W. Dandy
11215 North Community
House Road
Suite 750
Charlotte, NC 28277

Katherine Dandy is Of Counsel in our Charlotte office. With over twenty-five years of experience, she defends clients in litigation involving medical malpractice, general liability matters, and business disputes.

Before relocating with her family to North Carolina, Kathy had a long career as a litigator in New York. She spent her first five years after law school in the trenches as a public defender, learning valuable trial and negotiation skills, before transitioning into civil litigation. Since then, she has developed a diverse litigation practice, representing physicians and other healthcare providers in medical malpractice actions, and business entities in a wide variety of commercial disputes.

An accomplished writer, Kathy has prevailed on numerous summary judgment motions and appeals before state and federal courts. Appellate advocacy requires a unique skill set, one that emphasizes the ability to analyze and understand subtle legal distinctions, conduct careful and focused research, and provide persuasive written and oral presentations to a sophisticated appellate court.

Katherine earned her J.D. from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University in New York City, and also holds a B.A. in English from the University of Pennsylvania.

Outside of the office, Kathy enjoys baking bread, cooking, reading, and spending time with her husband, their two children, and their corgi, Luna.
