          About Kate Dyer

          Kathleen (Kate) Dyer is an experienced criminal defense attorney who is dedicated to helping her community through her legal work. Having practiced law for so many years, there isn’t much that catches Kate by surprise in the courtroom. In fact, her previous work experience as a prosecutor with a 95% conviction rate provides her with valuable insight into the strategies prosecutors use when trying cases, and she uses that knowledge to her advantage when representing clients at The Nieves Law Firm.

          Kate earned her bachelor’s degree in Nursing before pursuing her law degree at Golden Gate University in San Francisco. Her passion for helping others through a career in the legal field is evidenced by the fact that in law school, Kate worked full-time during the day and attended law school in the evenings. Since that was too easy, she also got married and had a baby halfway through! Her dedication to helping others never wavered, even when she took a few years off of practicing as an attorney to teach a course on criminal justice at a college in Oregon. While she loved teaching, Kate missed the excitement of the courtroom and returned to private practice in 2016.

          Kate has practiced as an attorney in multiple states throughout the US. After moving to Tennessee in 2003, she founded her own practice in a small town outside of Nashville. Within two years, Kate had the largest law firm north of Nashville with a focus on criminal defense. She tried a number of high-profile cases throughout her esteemed legal career, including representing two individuals on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list. However, Kate still considers her finest moment in the legal field the day she made a detective cry during cross-examination.

          When she is not advocating for clients or assisting attorneys with case preparation, she spends her free time participating in a variety of mentally-focused activities. She is an avid poker player, genealogist, and a fan of disaster movies.
