Katrina Vitale

Katrina joins us as a graduate of Rutgers Law School and with 22 years of experience. Katrina has demonstrated that she is among the best at her craft throughout her distinguished career, working with five esteemed firms and running her own practice for eight years.

Beyond practicing, Katrina has a passion for sharing her knowledge of the law with others. She has dedicated five years to teaching paralegal studies at Gloucester County Community College.

While joining our team as an established, well-respected attorney, Katrina is pursuing her LLM in tax. Even at the pinnacle of her career, she is still looking to take the next steps.

We are both humbled and excited to welcome her aboard the Kadish Associates team.

Areas of Expertise

  • Trust and estate planning
  • Elder law
  • Family, divorce, domestic relations

Katrina has an undeniably impressive background in trust and estate planning. Beginning in 2001, she homed in on this area and established herself as one of the best in the industry. Since then, Katrina has prided herself on her work regarding foundational estate planning, revocable living trusts, trust funding, trust administration, trust litigation, trust decanting, business planning, estate administration, estate litigation, and guardianships, particularly with middle- to high-net-worth estates.

Most recently, Katrina has gone above and beyond for over 200 of her clients with revocable trusts that were created or amended before 2012. She took this task on, knowing the challenges, and was able to update all of them to take advantage of the most current opportunities within the laws.

Even as she has excelled in estate and trust planning, Katrina has found time to master elder law and ethics, teaching a college-level course in it for four years. Amazingly, Katrina picked up this extra responsibility a mere two years after starting her career in domestic law.

As an associate attorney, Katrina immediately put her recently acquired JD to use by helping families in New Jersey solve their domestic disputes. For two years, she diligently worked to aid in all areas regarding divorce, divorce relations, domestic violence, and adoption.
