Biography

“I believe in advocating for human values. Too often we see corporate bottom lines dehumanize the claims process reducing people to statistics and denials. It’s my job to advocate against that practice.”

Catherine has dedicated her practice to helping those who have suffered life changing injuries because she has seen, through a close family member’s struggles, the devastating effects of such injuries. Catherine has witnessed the physical and emotional toll it takes on the injured person and their families. Her job is to help put families back together after these tragic events.

With a wealth of experience in the field, Catherine Shearer has established herself as a trusted advocate for individuals facing life-altering circumstances.

Catherine focuses on navigating the complex personal injury cases, particularly those involving traumatic brain injuries. She understands the profound impact such injuries can have on individuals and their families.

In addition to traumatic brain injury cases, Catherine Shearer is well-versed in handling cases requiring surgery, recognizing the physical, emotional, and financial toll that these situations can impose on her clients.

Catherine has a special interest in dealing with car accidents involving transport trucks and incidents with farm implements. Transport truck and farm implement collisions demand a lawyer with a deep understanding of the unique dynamics involved. Catherine brings her experience to these cases, advocating for her clients’ rights and working tirelessly to achieve favorable outcomes.

In addition to helping those who have suffered life altering injuries, Catherine helps people in securing denied long-term disability benefits. Within this field of practice Catherine recognizes the unique challenges faced by professionals dealing with disabilities. Whether you are a doctor, lawyer, accountant or executive she is committed to telling your story so that it is truly heard thereby securing your wrongfully denied benefits.

Catherine’s commitment to her clients goes beyond legal knowledge; she is a compassionate advocate who genuinely cares about the well-being of those she represents. Her approach combines legal proficiency with a human touch, providing a sense of reassurance and comfort to her clients throughout the legal process.

Outside of the office, Catherine is a mom, wife, dog mom, and wellness enthusiast. She has created a mental health podcast for lawyers and believes deeply in giving back to the professional community and the community where she lives.

Effective July 1, 2021 – My maximum contingency fee rate for most personal injury cases is 30% except for medical/dental/professional malpractice cases which would have a maximum rate of 40%.

Testimonials

"Thank you so very much for everything you have done for me. It was so nice to feel comfortable with you and totally trust your guidance and advice."
- C.S.
"Thank you so much for your assistance, it was very much appreciated. It has been a very trying experience but your assistance was so helpful."
- A.G.
"In October 2014 I was in a motor vehicle collision and suffered a brain injury. After several months of rehabilitation and really not getting better, I contacted a law firm and was introduced to Catherine Shearer. She began investigating my case, confirmed others were at fault, she had me attend various medical specialists who helped determine my injuries and the long-term prognosis. At all times, she was sympathetic to my situation and took the time to explain in detail the different situations I would be involved in as my cognitive abilities had suffered. She always acted as a go-between with the insurance company so I would not have to deal directly with them. During the settlement meetings with the insurance company, Catherine provided coaching and support at all times, and did this in a very professional manner. As my settlement outcome was very satisfactory, I would say all of Catherine's efforts, diligence and skill showed her to be a very competent and knowledgeable lawyer. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her services to others"
