Cathy Carter

Senior Paralegal​

Catherine Carter serves as Coffey Modica O’Meara Capowski LLP’s senior paralegal.  She excels equally at both the substantive and clerical aspects of her role providing support to the firm’s acclaimed trial and litigation team. 


Everyone knows a litigation firm is only as strong as its staff, and Cathy provides CMOC with excellent paralegal support.  Her thirty years of experience across a wide range of litigation fields have given her the insight and know-how to efficiently prepare pleadings, discovery, and summarize case materials from depositions to complex medical records, freeing attorneys for other tasks.  Her eagle eye for detail enables her to assist in all stages of deposition and trial preparation.  She also effortlessly balances calendars, professional communications, and court filings. 

Cathy prides herself on both delivering favorable results for the firm’s clients and on her ability to build a rapport with colleagues, clients, and courts.  She supplements her work by drawing on her experience as a licensed insurance adjuster (South Carolina) and certified grant writer. 

Cathy hails from South Carolina, and is also an ordained minister with a degree in Ministerial Theology.
