At Seaside Attorneys, Catriona focuses on assistance with probate and estate administration, small business set-up and development, real estate transactions, debtor-creditor matters, and bankruptcy.
Catriona previously focused on representing children and families as indigent defense clients in dependency cases. During law school she represented clients in contested restraining order hearings as part of a Domestic Violence Clinic, was an intern at the Lane County District Attorney’s Office, and volunteered as a CASA for two years in Eugene.

Outside of the law, Catriona has held jobs as a salmon packer, a restaurant server, a library clerk, and sold bridal gowns.
