Katherine Metzger’s empathy is part of what makes her stand out as a leader in the legal field, she says.
“Even as a little girl, I could not help but empathize with others,” Metzger said. “I have a heart for people. I believe this deep compassion for others, including those I am fortunate enough to represent, have uniquely positioned me to fight for my clients,” Metzger noted.
Metzger comes from a big family with two parents, five brothers, and three sisters. Being surrounded by a family that supported her gave her the courage to discover her gifts and pursue them.
“I was fortunate enough to grow up in a home with two parents who showed me every day what it is to work hard for what I want,” she said. “They taught me that I could accomplish whatever I wanted, so long as I was willing to work for it and not give up when things got tough. They inspired me then, and they inspire me now,” Metzger’ added.
She said, “One of the things I love about representing the injured and the families of those injured or killed in nursing homes is having the opportunity to tell their stories. These people have been through unthinkable tragedy. It is a privilege to tell their stories, and in doing so, to get them the justice they deserve,” Metzger said.
