Veteran trial attorney Kate Harvey-Lee has joined Arias Sanguinetti Wang & Torrijos, LLP as a senior trial lawyer in the firm’s Los Angeles office. Her practice will focus on complex litigation involving consumer and employment class action, employment law, product liability, catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death.
Ms. Harvey-Lee is a seasoned trial lawyer with 16 years of experience representing plaintiffs in civil litigation at some of California’s most prestigious plaintiffs’ firms, focusing primarily on issues of automotive and transportation safety.

“I’m excited about this opportunity to join a firm with such high standards both in terms of what it expects from its attorneys and what results they expect on behalf of clients,” Ms. Harvey-Lee said.
She is the 2018-2019 Chair of the Bus Litigation Group of the American Association of Justice, and a member of the Executive Committee since 2015. In addition, Ms. Harvey-Lee has been recognized as a Super Lawyer Rising Star since 2005 and as a Super Lawyer every year since 2014, and she has been selected by her peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® every year since 2013.
