Katelyn Gunn Joins Stone Pigman Trusts and Estates Group


NEW ORLEANS – Katelyn Gunn has joined Stone Pigman Walther Wittmann as special counsel in the trusts and estates group.

Gunn joins Stone Pigman after spending more than seven years at two large national firms. As a trusts and estates attorney, she helps clients navigate sophisticated estate planning issues. She drafts documents, including wills, powers of attorney, trusts, and matrimonial agreements. She administers succession proceedings and prepares U.S. Gift Tax returns and U.S. Estate Tax returns.

“Katelyn has spent years honing her skills, advising clients in the estate planning process and is a solid addition to the firm,” said Michael Walshe, chairman of Stone Pigman’s management committee. “Her capabilities and experience will serve our clients well and further strengthen our established trusts and estates group led by John Overby.”

“I was drawn to this field because it presents an opportunity to work with clients in an area that impacts everyone, regardless of the size of their estates. It is satisfying to work with clients to enact plans that give them peace of mind that their wishes will be carried out and to assist clients with their goals of wealth preservation and family business continuity for future generations,” Gunn said. “Joining Stone Pigman offers me a great opportunity to develop my practice in a well-established group, helping to make the estate planning process understandable and accessible for existing and new clients.”

A Gainesville, Georgia native, Gunn graduated from Tulane University Law School cum laude. During law school, she was a judicial extern to U.S. District Court Judge Kurt Engelhardt.

Gunn earned her undergraduate degrees in political science and Spanish from the University of Georgia, where she graduated summa cum laude, was on the dean’s list and was a member of Phi Beta Kappa and a UGA Presidential Scholar.
