Catherine Coulter

Catie's-Bio-PicCatherine Coulter is an associate attorney of Sobel & Erwin, PLLC.  Catherine graduated cum laude from Missouri State University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology and minors in Spanish and Human Resources.  She received the Board of Governors scholarship all four years of her undergraduate career.  Missouri State University honored Catherine with the Outstanding Senior Award due to her leadership as President and Treasurer of her sorority, Xi Omicron Iota.  She was twice invited and accompanied her professor to a small town in San Luis Potosi, Mexico to research the culture of the area and later present her findings to her peers.  These trips sparked Catherine’s interest in immigration law and led her to attend the University of Tulsa College of Law.

Catherine graduated from the University of Tulsa College of Law in May 2013 and was admitted to the Oklahoma Bar in September 2013.  She was an Articles and Research Editor of the Tulsa Law Review and the Magistrate of the legal honor society, Phi Delta Phi.  Catherine was a research assistant to Professor Sam Halabi whose work focused on international law.  She further interned for Judge Jerry Goodman with the Oklahoma Court of Civil Appeals.  Catherine also participated in the Immigrant Rights Project at the Boesche Legal Clinic for two semesters.  She worked on a variety of cases including U-visa and naturalization.  Catherine gained further experience as a clerk for a business immigration law firm in Tulsa.

Catherine began clerking at Sobel & Erwin in August 2012 and is excited to join the firm as an Associate Attorney.  She relishes the challenging nature of immigration law due to the wide range of cases that come across her desk.  Catherine also enjoys the small nature of Sobel & Erwin which allows her to be very “hands on” with the client’s and their cases.
