About Katelyn

Katelyn Bounds joined Midwest Disability Work Comp, P.A. in 2017 and has dedicated her practice to workers' compensation litigation as well as short term and long term disability disputes. She has experience representing injured employees in mediation, administrative conferences, hearings before a Compensation Judge and the Minnesota Supreme Court. She also focuses a portion of her practice on representing employees in ERISA and non-ERISA private disability appeals. Katelyn enjoys connecting with her clients and advocating for the benefits they deserve. She finds a collaborative approach and open communication keys to effective representation.

Katelyn moved to Minnesota in 2008 from Anchorage, Alaska. When she is not in the office or in the courtroom, you can find her in a hockey rink coaching girls hockey, traveling back home to Anchorage, or spending time with her yellow lab, Lemon.
