About Katherine R. Boyd
I have practiced law in Modesto since 1990 handling a variety of litigation and transactional matters. My practice is focused on working with businesses and public entities to resolve their employment issues understanding that employers sometimes need advice and assistance in a hurry to work through a difficult situation with an employee. My goal when advising employers is to solve a problem before it turns into a lawsuit.
However, when a client does face litigation, I’ve represented my clients in the courtroom and before various administrative boards and agencies including the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board, Division of Labor Standards Enforcement, Department of Fair Employment and Housing, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Public Employment Relations Board.
I have also provided training for clients and other groups on employment topics including harassment prevention specially designing programs to address specific issues and needs.
I have served as in independent workplace investigator for complaints of harassment, discrimination and other misconduct.
I received a Bachelor of Science and my law degree from Memphis State University (now known as the University of Memphis). I am admitted to practice before the state courts of California and Tennessee, the United States Supreme Court, the United States District Courts for the Northern, Central and Eastern Districts of California and the United States Court of Appeal for the Ninth Circuit.
I am a member of the Labor and Employment Law section of the California State Bar, the Stanislaus County Bar Association, the Wray Ladine American Inn of Court, Modesto Gateway Rotary and the Modesto Symphony Orchestra Association Board of Directors.
When I’m not working, I enjoy traveling, reading, hiking and cycling and am an assistant coach for a cycling team for cancer survivors.
