Prior Experience

Katherine is a 2020 graduate of Northeastern University School of Law. During law school, Katherine focused her work on criminal matters, inequities in the criminal legal system, and dismantling the cradle-to-prison pipeline. Before joining Zalkind Duncan & Bernstein LLP as an associate, Katherine worked as a legal intern at Zalkind and another Boston litigation firm, where she worked on both criminal and civil matters. Katherine also completed two public interest internships at local legal services organizations, where she assisted supervising attorneys in preparing for special education and academic discipline proceedings, prepared immigration applications, and prepared and filed documents for various family law proceedings.

At Northeastern, Katherine completed an independent research project critiquing SESTA-FOSTA (a new federal law regarding sex trafficking) under the supervision of Professor Aziza Ahmed. She also contributed research and analysis to the Center for Public Interest Advocacy and Collaboration’s BBA-funded project to map points of intervention in the cradle-to-prison pipeline. Katherine also conducted research about intersecting forms of oppression experienced by the most marginalized members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

Prior to law school, Katherine managed customer-facing operations at a custom jewelry start-up company. She also previously worked as an IT risk advisory associate at an audit, tax, and consulting firm.

I hired Mr. Duncan to deal with a very sensitive issue that my daughter had. Since the first contact, I had a very good impression of him.

I called and emailed him many times, he was polite and comprehensible with the anxiety of a father and appeared to know every step to solve the case. I strongly recommend Mr. Duncan. Flavio Lajoia

I worked with Emma Quinn-Judge and Monica Shah.

I am forever grateful to all the staff at this firm, but in particular, Ms. Shah, Mr. Zalkind and Mr. Silverglate. They represented my son who was being sought for extradition to Scotland. The case took years to fight, covering new legal ground, setting precedence. But each one of these legal eagles went above and beyond the duty of office... Suzanne D.
