Katie McDermott


Katie McDermott is a partner in the Property Rights Group at Davis Graham & Stubbs LLP. Ms. McDermott is an accomplished trial lawyer who focuses on eminent domain, special district finance disputes, and other complex real estate-related dispute resolution and litigation.

Prior to joining DGS, Ms. McDermott was a partner in the Denver office of an international law firm.

Over the years, she has defeated condemnation actions on behalf of landowners and negotiated complex agreements to help her landowner clients minimize project impacts. She has also obtained several multi-million-dollar verdicts for her clients in valuation trials across the country.

In her general real estate work, Ms. McDermott provides strategic counsel to help clients navigate real estate issues related to commercial leases, homeowners’ associations, and urban renewal authorities. She also has over a decade of experience unraveling special district finance disputes.

Ms. McDermott received her J.D. from the University of Colorado Law School and her B.A. from Arizona State University.
