Kathleen Wyllie, Esq.
Kathleen grew up in St. Johnsbury, Vermont before attending Roger Williams College in Bristol, Rhode Island. Kathleen fell in love with Rhode Island so, upon her graduation with a Bachelor’s degree in paralegal studies, Kathleen decided to stay in Rhode Island.
Kathleen began her legal career working as a paralegal for a small general practice law firm, being exposed to many different areas of the law. Working as a paralegal, Kathleen decided that she wanted to be more involved in every aspect of a case in order to better assist the clients. She, therefore, decided to attend law school, working as a paralegal during the day and traveling to Boston to attend law school at night. After graduating from Suffolk Law School, cum laude, Kathleen clerked for the judges in the Rhode Island Superior Court, assisting with research and decision writing for the judges. She then spent 5 years working for a general practice law firm, handling plaintiff’s injury cases, insurance defense, landlord-tenant matters and other general civil litigation.
After leaving the general practice firm, Kathleen spent 17 years working for 2 major insurance companies in their house counsel offices, representing the companies’ insureds who were sued for car accidents, slip and fall accidents in their homes, or dog bites. Over those 17 years, Kathleen gained valuable insight into how insurance companies value claims and how to work up a claim to get the best compensation for the client.
In March 2016, Kathleen decided to start a new venture, and opened Wyllie Law LLC in Warwick, Rhode Island, focusing on plaintiff personal injury claims.
Kathleen and her husband live in Warwick, Rhode Island with their dog, Cooper. When not working, Kathleen enjoys reading, travel and live music. She is also an avid sports fan, cheering on her Boston sports teams – the Red Sox, Bruins and, most importantly, her New England Patriots!
