Kathryn Pfefferle enjoys solving puzzles — legal ones, that is.

“I have to find the right information, or pieces, analyze how those pieces best fit within a larger picture, and then put it all together,” said Pfefferle, an associate attorney at Boardman Clark.

Pfefferle joined the firm in 2016 as a law clerk when she was attending the University of Wisconsin Law School. She made a good first impression and has since taken on a considerable degree of responsibility as a trial lawyer.

Pfefferle primarily deals with insurance and real estate litigation and has consistently shown herself to be a highly competent litigator.

“She has shown a high degree of competence in handling the work she is assigned and is rapidly earning the trust of her supervising partners,” said Alexis Wells, a marketing associate at Boardman Clark. “With this level of trust, Kathryn has inevitably been asked to assume an ever-increasing case load of conventional legal work.”

Since joining Boardman Clark, Pfefferle has placed a priority on doing pro bono work. She, for instance, has taken three pro bono appointments from the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin.

Pfefferle said she first became interested in law while she was working at a large domestic hunger relief nonprofit.

“In that role, I worked with the USDA to expand food assistance program access,” she said. “I was very interested in policy and utilizing regulations to shape programs and help people. In law school, I found myself attracted to litigation and really appreciate the process and strategy that goes into litigation and case management. In some cases, litigation helps develop and shape law, which also has a real-life impact on people.”

Outside of work, Pfefferle enjoys cooking, hiking, boating, undertaking do-it-yourself home projects and spending time with her family.
