About Katherine

Kate Day was born in Lakenheath, England and raised in Tampa, Florida. She graduated magna cum laude from Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, in 1999, and cum laude from the Notre Dame Law School, South Bend, Indiana, in 2002. While at Notre Dame, Kate participated in the Immigration Clinic, where her filings and argument were instrumental in obtaining asylum status for an asylee, who escaped the Rwandan genocide.

Immediately after law school, Kate clerked for the Honorable Charles R. Wilson of the 11th Circuit, United States Court of Appeals. After the completion of this prestigious clerkship, Kate moved to Western Massachusetts and joined Egan, Flanagan & Cohen. Kate has practiced civil litigation with the firm since 2003, specializing in civil rights defense and appellate advocacy. Kate has briefed numerous cases in the Massachusetts state and federal courts, including the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit and the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. Among other achievements, Kate prepared the successful brief in the precedent-setting First Circuit case, Mass. Mut. Life Ins. Co. v. Fraidowitz, 443 F.3d 128 (2006).
