Kate’s passion to help people began as a child and in fact, she has been involved with personal injury and accident claims for a very long time! As a child, Kate would regularly go to her parent’s offices and since high school has held positions within both her father’s chiropractic office and law firm. This allowed Kate to gain the unique perspective of both the patient’s injuries and how the accident laws were applied. However just like any other young adult, she wanted to explore the possibility of a career in something new and decided to explore other areas of the law. Kate started her own firm in 2007 and began to help consumers navigate Florida’s Lemon Laws. Before long, Kate missed the satisfaction of helping accident and injury victims and decided to answer the call on her life to be a personal injury attorney just as her father did before her. In 2014, she was appointed by Florida’s Attorney General as an Arbitrator for the Jacksonville Division of the Florida Lemon Law Arbitration Board. In 2016, the firm was rebranded as Hatfield & Hatfield, PA to honor the partnership with her husband.
Kate has been married to John since 2007 and share four wonderful children together.
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.” – Colossians 3:23
Prior to attending law school, John worked as a claims adjuster for Allstate Insurance, primarily handling automobile accident claims. After graduating from law school, he used his previous insurance experience and worked for an insurance defense firm.
Today, John works alongside his wife, Kate, helping those who have been injured in automobile accidents.
