Transgender Law

The area of transgender law is an area of specialty for Attorney Kate Fletcher.  Kate has provided a variety of legal services for transgender clients and participates regularly in pro bono clinics and events.  For the transgender client many of the necessary legal steps that are part of transition may be difficult to access either because of lack of knowledge regarding how to proceed or road blocks arising in the legal system itself.  Kate assists clients in navigating the legal system and getting through the various steps in completing the legal transition.  Steps may include legal name change, notifying the DMV, Social Security, obtaining a new passport, petitioning the court for a legal gender marker change and/or obtaining a new birth certificate.
