Catherine E. Koss joined Barulich Dugoni Law Group, Inc. in 2016. Ms. Koss has enjoyed an active litigation practice since 2006. Her primary areas of practice include trust and estate litigation, including the representation of heirs, beneficiaries, and fiduciaries in will and trust contests, disputes, accounting matters, and breach of fiduciary actions, elder abuse litigation, commercial litigation, tax litigation, real estate litigation, and general civil litigation. Ms. Koss also represents trustees and beneficiaries in trust and estate administrations, particularly those administrations with complex issues and litigation components.

Ms. Koss has first and second chaired trials in state and federal courts and also has extensive experience managing cases during all aspects of litigation and mediation. She also has practiced appellate law in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the California Courts of Appeal. Ms. Koss is a staunch advocate for her clients and enjoys trial practice, but she also understands that not every case or client is best served by court determination. As such, she works closely with clients to develop the best strategies for resolution in order to achieve successful outcomes.
