Kathryn M. Forgie began her career as an assistant attorney general in the Territory of Guam. There, in addition to beginning her lifelong love of scuba diving, she prosecuted numerous felonies including the double homicide of two police officers. Seeking a slightly expanded jurisdiction, she moved to London to practice tax and international law which she enjoyed for two years. The desire to be closer to family finally brought her to California, where she began her 30-year involvement in the field of pharmaceutical and medical device litigation.

For twenty years, Kathryn served as lead and co-lead national counsel and regional counsel in various large, complex litigations including lead national counsel for Bayer Aspirin in the Reyes Syndrome litigation. Her area of interest and expertise developed into running medical, scientific and regulatory experts on a national, regional and local level for the defense bar. Kathryn organized nationwide seminars to teach local and regional lawyers various aspects of whatever litigation she was supervising. She was a member of both DRI and IADC, and spoke at booth IADC and California Defense Bar conferences.

Kathryn saw the light, left the defense bar, and started her own plaintiff-oriented firm, The Law Office of Kathryn M. Forgie. There she again coordinated all aspects concerning the experts nationally for the AMO acanthamoeba litigation and the California JCCP. Kathryn has handled pain pump cases as local counsel and on individual basis for larger cases in the California JCCP. In 2013, Kathryn was honored to join the Andrus Wagstaff firm, where she is now a Partner managing Andrus Wagstaff’s California office. Kathryn is licensed to practice law in all state and federal courts of California.
