Katherine A. Harmon

is the Owner and Managing Partner of the Northside Law Firm and has been practicing law since graduating from Indiana University School of Law in 2001. Her dream has always been to help families from all over the state successfully navigate serious family law matters. After working for large sought-after practices for many years, Kathy decided to open her own firm in 2021.

Kathy believes the key to her successful representation of her clients is her ability to have the knowledge and preparation necessary to aggressively represent her clients in court while also having the ability to problem-solve and reach creative solutions to avoid the necessity of a hearing, if possible.
