Caleb C.D. Katz joined Matthiesen, Wickert & Lehrer, S.C. (MWL) as a subrogation associate attorney after a couple years of serving as a paralegal and law clerk for MWL. Caleb’s practice focuses on insurance litigation and subrogation within all lines of insurance, with an emphasis on occupational accident subrogation. Caleb obtained his Bachelor of Arts in History from Ohio Welseyan University in May 2013 and his Juris Doctor in May 2016 from Marquette University Law School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Prior to joining MWL, Caleb worked as a Legislative Intern in Madison for Wisconsin State Representative Evan Goyke, a law clerk with the Wisconsin National Guard JAG’s office in Madison, and a law clerk for Chief Judge James Shadid in the U.S. Federal District Court of Central Illinois.

Caleb is an avid Notre Dame sports fan, racquetball player, and student of history.  He enjoys traveling both domestically and internationally.

Representative Cases

Georgia is a notoriously difficult jurisdiction in which to seek subrogation. Attorney Katz successfully recovered $286,000 on an occupational accident subrogation claim. The case, Jimmy Hornsby v. Chuck Erwin Sanders, et al., involved a pedestrian/motor vehicle accident in Tallapoosa, GA. The insured was the pedestrian and suffered considerable injuries as a result of this accident. Faced with Georgia’s anti-subrogation and complete compensation statutes, Attorney Katz was able to successfully leverage a choice-of-law argument creating a sizeable recovery for MWL’s client.
