Katharine Batchelor


Katharine Batchelor is a cum laude graduate of Wake Forest School of Law. Prior to joining Milberg, Ms. Batchelor clerked for the Honorable Darren Jackson on the North Carolina Court of Appeals, drafting opinions in civil, criminal, and juvenile appeals. She has additional experience serving with the Regional Public Defender for Capital Cases in Texas and the Mecklenburg County Public Defender’s office in Charlotte. 

Ms. Batchelor’s friend and former Wake Law classmate, Associate Amanda Memmler, introduced her to Milberg. With Milberg’s passion for protecting the rights of plaintiffs, Ms. Batchelor is excited to join the team and leverage her various litigation experiences to seek justice for her clients and pursue restoration for the harm they experienced. 

While at Wake Forest, Ms. Batchelor served as managing editor of the Wake Forest Law Review and was the executive director of the Public Interest Law Organization. She was a member of the American Association for Justice Trial Team and the American Bar Association Moot Court Team. Her moot court team won the regional competition and advanced to the national finals. Additionally, as a clinic student, she argued a federal habeas corpus petition before the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals and briefed a civil rights appeal before the Fourth Circuit. Her team prevailed in both cases.

Outside the office, Ms. Batchelor enjoys spending time with friends and family, particularly catching up while going for a walk. She is also active in the community with several organizations, including HopeLine, Musical Empowerment, and the North Carolina Study Center. She is a fan of the Carolina Panthers and Tarheel basketball.
