Catherine L. Kyle

During the past two decades, Catherine (Cathy) Kyle has devoted her practice to representing individuals and companies in civil litigation and business matters. Cathy’s varied experience allows her to provide a range of services to her clients and to offer new perspectives and solutions to their legal problems.

A native of Evansville, Cathy first began her practice there before moving to Johnson County in 2002.  While at law firms in Evansville and Indianapolis, Cathy focused on civil litigation and provided advice regarding health care, business, and employment issues. As a risk manager at a local hospital, Cathy worked with patients, physicians, and staff members to address concerns about care and managed contracts and litigation matters. Most recently, Cathy was employed as Vice President of Risk and Compliance and General Counsel for a large nonprofit with operations across five states. In that position, Cathy managed all the company’s legal matters, including contracts, litigation, and risk and compliance issues.

Since re-entering private practice, Cathy has focused her practice on family law, adoption and guardianship, Child in Need of Services cases, and other civil litigation matters.  Cathy serves as a guardian ad litem in family law and juvenile proceedings.  Cathy also serves as a Panel Chair in medical malpractice cases pending before the Indiana Department of Insurance.

In her free time, Cathy enjoys making stained glass and blowing glass through an apprenticeship program with the Bloomington Creative Glass Center, and is also an avid reader.  A devoted sports fan, Cathy roots for both IU and UNC, as well as anyone who plays Duke.  Cathy is also active in greyhound rescue, and shares a home with a retired racer, Lily.
