Kait LaPorte, Paralegal

Kait LaPorte

Kait is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Washington, where she studies ethnomusicology. During her time at UW, Kait enjoyed teaching classes in American folk and popular music with a focus on musical activism. She also served as the secretary and co-president of the Ethnomusicology Student Association.

At Harris Bricken, Kait provides critical support to the firm’s litigation and dispute resolution practice. Her unrelenting attention to detail and project management skills have made her a valued member of the Harris Bricken team.

In addition to her primary duties, Kait assists our team with social media posts and website updates as well as a number of core administrative tasks. Working closely with the Harris Bricken attorneys and staff, Kait strives to deliver exceptional service to our clients.

Outside of work, and when she isn’t working on her dissertation, Kait knows how to relax: she enjoys cooking, hiking, puppy watching, and of course making and listening to good music.
