Kate L. McDonald, Esq.


Kate McDonald is licensed to practice law in Colorado, Wyoming, and the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals. Ms. McDonald’s practice involves civil litigation matters with a primary focus in the construction industry. She has successfully represented homeowners, developers, declarants, builders, contractors, subcontractors, and other construction professionals in cases involving construction defects, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, mold/remediation, mechanic’s liens/foreclosure, product defect, consumer protection, ADA compliance, construction accidents, and delay/acceleration/lost labor claims. In addition, Ms. McDonald has handled several cases involving claims in personal injury, wrongful death, premises liability, employment, and constitutional law, as well as provided coverage opinions and contract review. Her experience as an adjuster prior to attending law school has assisted her in properly evaluating cases early on, which has lead to early resolution of cases.
