Kathy Stewart is a licensed legal professional who is a dedicated, committed, and zealous advocate for her clients. She is passionate about understanding and helping others. She initiated her educational pursuits at Elon University where she graduated with a Bachelors of Arts (B.A.) in Philosophy and Sociology, which enabled her to think critically and to deeply understand societal influences. During her undergraduate studies, Kathy began to recognize that lawyers have the ability to be activists and social engineers for justice and equality. She quickly learned that one way to significantly help people is to advocate for justice through the legal system, which led her to earn a Juris Doctor degree (J.D.) from Elon University School of Law. In her continued commitment to education, she obtained a Master of Laws (LL.M.) from Emory University School of Law and earned a Master’s in Business Administration (M.B.A.) from Mercer University Stetson School of Business and Economics.
During law school, as a Leadership Fellow, she externed at the Guilford County Public Defender’s Office, the NC Office of Juvenile Defenders and the NC Department of Commerce. Now, presently in her professional career, she deeply understands the vital role and importance of workers in all professions, and is devoted to helping injured individuals navigate through the worker’s compensation and social security disability system.
