At the Law Office of Katherine Roe, Ms. Roe provides individualized and outstanding legal counsel and advocacy to disabled persons and their families navigating the Social Security Disability benefits process.
Katherine 'Katie' Roe is originally from the San Francisco Bay Area. She graduated from the University of St. Thomas, Saint Paul Minnesota with a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology and minor in Criminal Justice. She earned her Master in Public Administration from University of Notre Dame de Namur, Belmont, CA. Katie graduated from University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento where she received the Witkin Award for Health Law and Elder Law Clinic.
By maintaining a select case load Ms. Roe is able to work one on one with her clients to collect the evidence and develop the legal theory needed to put forth a strong supported argument for disability before the Social Security Administration. Her practice is limited to cases in the jurisdiction of the Sacramento and Stockton Social Security Offices of Adjudication and Review.
Ms. Roe began representing disabled persons before the Social Security Administration as a certified law student at the Pacific McGeorge Elder and Health Law Clinic in 2011. She continued to represent individuals in Social Security Disability benefit appeals while at the law firm of Fraulob-Brown where she also represented injured workers in Workers' Compensation cases. In 2017 Ms. Roe opened her solo practice focusing on Social Security Disability.

- Cohn Sister's Scholarship for Patient Advocacy Each year, the NAELA Foundation proudly awards several Cohn Sisters’ Scholarships for Patient Advocacy. Scholarships provide attorneys the opportunity to attend the NAELA Annual Conference. The Cohn Sisters' Scholarship is available to elder law and special needs planning attorneys who are unable to afford to attend the NAELA Annual Conference and who will use the training to advocate for people with disabilities. Your donations to the Foundation help provide tuition and room at the conference. Scholarship History The Cohn Sisters' Scholarship was established through the NAELA Memorial Fund in memory of Vivian Cohn Smith and Lorrie Cohn. Vivian and Lorrie, sisters of NAELA Fellow Helen Cohn Needham, were tireless patient advocates who dedicated themselves to patients and people with disabilities. Vivian worked for the disabled in the state of North Carolina. She used her personal experiences as a patient with illness to defend people with special needs. Sadly, after a 10-year battle with breast cancer, Vivian passed in November 1997. In kind, Lorrie was a patient advocate and worked as an intensive care and triage nurse for Kaiser Permanente. She believed that patient advocacy is integral to caregiving and strove to make it an essential part of her career. We lost Lorrie in November 2005.
