Caitlin grew up in Columbia, Illinois, watching her father fight for the rights of injured individuals and their families. From an early age, she knew she also wanted to help people. Throughout high school and college, Caitlin spent her summers working at the firm. In 2016, she graduated from St. Louis University, where she achieved a Bachelor of Science in Social Work, with a Minor in Psychology. In 2019, she graduated from St. Louis University School of Law.
During her time at SLU Law, Caitlin put her social work degree and compassionate nature to work. She dedicated her time to numerous public interest organizations and agencies, including the St. Louis County Public Defender's office, where she represented indigent people, CASA of St. Louis, where she represented children in the foster care system, and also participated in SLU LAW's criminal defense clinic, and the Catholic Legal Assistance Ministry. She also helped coordinate SLU Law's Street Law Program, which helped teach inmates at the St. Louis City Justice Center about their legal rights. For all of this work, she was awarded the 2019 SLU Law Community Service Award.
After passing the bar exam in 2019, Caitlin began her legal career advocating for children in foster care as a guardian ad litem and also worked as a juvenile public defender, where she represented indigent children throughout the St. Louis area. In 2020, after gaining a considerable amount of courtroom and real-life client counseling experience, she brought her passion and aptitude back to her family's firm, where she continues to be a compassionate advocate for all of the firm's clients.
