Katherine Hughes Personal Injury Lawyer
Wagner Hughes, LLC
Kate’s behind the scenes experience has been invaluable in providing her with insight on nursing home and other civil litigation cases that most lawyers do not have. She worked as the staff attorney for Fulton County Superior Court Judge Jack Goger. This enabled her to learn the Court’s perspective regarding hundreds of different cases, which included nursing home, personal injury, medical malpractice, and many more, at every stage from the initial discovery through jury trial.
After Kate completed her judicial clerkship, she worked at one of Atlanta’s top civil litigation defense firms where she was elected partner after building a successful nursing home practice. Kate worked for many major insurance companies defending cases focusing on nursing home abuse, medical malpractice, and motor vehicle accidents. Learning about the nursing home industry from the inside out made Kate an asset to any nursing home case. Knowing how the big insurance companies operate behind the scenes ensures Kate can evaluate a case the same way the insurance company does and know what they are thinking, what they are doing and why they are doing it.
Now Kate uses her experience to represent families and individuals who have been affected by nursing home abuse and personal injury due to the negligence of others.
Kate grew up in Lilburn, Georgia and attended Parkview High School. She is married and has five amazing children. In her free time, she loves trying to learn new things such as golf and spending time outdoors. Kate was an avid runner as a child and recently got back to running and completed her first half marathon in 2012. Kate loves to travel and experience other cultures. She is also a fan of live music.
