I strive to provide excellent service to my clients to help solve the problems that they cannot fix alone.

Born and raised in Forsyth County, Katie (Fulk) Hinds graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a BA in Public Policy Analysis and returned to the area to attend law school at Wake Forest School of Law, receiving her Juris Doctor in 2008.  

During law school, Katie took every opportunity to gain practical, hands-on experience, participating in the Elder Law Clinic, representing elderly and indigent clients in a variety of legal matters, and the Litigation Clinic, working with local firms as well as at R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company.  It was during her time with the Litigation Clinic that Katie successfully represented her first criminal defendant, securing an acquittal in Forsyth County District Court for a client wrongfully charged with a crime.

One of the most significant aspects of an attorney’s job is to communicate for clients when they cannot on their own, often because they lack knowledge of the legal system and its processes. Because of this, Katie is dedicated to providing comprehensive guidance and representation for clients.

Professionally, Katie takes on a wide variety of cases. She thrives in a fluctuating work environment. One day she may be in the courtroom and another she is meeting with a client one on one.  She enjoys going into work and doing something new and different every day.

When she is not representing clients in the courtroom or meeting with them in the office, Katie is often spending time with her husband, Donny, or in the kitchen for her cookie business, KatieBakes (https://www.facebook.com/katiehindsbakes/).  She is a prolific reader and takes incredible joy in leading a Bible Fellowship class and women’s Bible study at Calvary Baptist Church.  She also is the assistant coach for the high school Mock Trial team at Calvary Day School.
