Meet Attorney Kate Harvey-Lee

Kate Harvey-Lee is an attorney and Managing Director of California Truck Law.  Kate has been fighting on behalf of injured victims for almost 20 years. Over the course of her distinguished career, she has practiced at some of the most preeminent plaintiffs firms in the country, handling a wide spectrum of complex cases, including mass disasters, wrongful death, traumatic brain injury, and numerous bus and truck wrecks. She started California Truck Law based on the idea that having a caring and compassionate heart does not detract from excellence in the practice of law or seeking justice. 

Kate is a California native and has a great love for the Golden State. She was born in the Bay Area and raised in the small town of Susanville in Lassen County. Her father, Joseph B. Harvey, was a volunteer civil rights lawyer in Mississippi in the 1960s and later was elected judge of the Superior Court for Lassen County. He was also the principal author of the California Evidence Code – which remains a bedrock to every trial in every courtroom in this state. His legacy gave Kate an abiding sense of obligation to excellence in the law and compassion for others.

It was upon this legacy that Kate attended Whittier Law School, graduating summa cum laude and third in her class, where she earned top honors in Torts and Legal Writing and a perfect score in Evidence. Ms. Harvey-Lee has established a reputation for excellence at some of California’s most prestigious law firms.

With this extensive breadth of experience, Ms. Harvey-Lee has focused much of her legal career on cases involving truck and commercial vehicle accidents. She is board certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy in Truck Accident Law. She sits on the Executive Board for the Academy of Truck Accident Attorneys – a nationwide association of some of the most experienced and knowledgeable truck wreck attorneys. Truck accident cases are often incredibly complicated and demand the knowledge and skill of an attorney who is experienced in handling such difficult claims.

Whether by trial, settlement, or arbitration, Kate has recovered millions of dollars on behalf of her clients. She is proud to have served as a compassionate counselor and determined advocate for her clients during some of the most difficult times of their lives. As a mother of two, she understands the importance of family and is committed to the fight to make the world a safer place.

Kate has been named to the Nation’s Top One Percent of the National Association of Distinguished Counsel and the National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Trial Lawyers list. She has been recognized as a SuperLawyer Rising Star since 2005 and selected by her peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® every year since 2013.

When she is not fighting on behalf of her clients, Ms. Harvey-Lee writes numerous articles related to personal injury litigation for a variety of respected legal publications. She is a frequent speaker at state and national seminars and advocates fiercely for important safety issues. She has appeared frequently on radio and television news segments to discuss safety issues concerning commercial transportation accidents.
