Main Talk: Advocating for Homeless Youth
Come engage with Oasis in person. We look forward to building community together.
Speaker: Kate Conyers, Attorney
Kate is a trial attorney at her own firm, Conyers Nix. She started her legal career as a civil litigator but realized that her talents were more suited for the fast-paced atmosphere of criminal defense. She joined the Salt Lake Legal Defender Association (LDA) in 2011 representing hundreds of indigent defendants in plea negotiations and trial. In 2018, she started her own firm with her colleague Jesse Nix, and the rest is history.
In addition to her legal work, Kate provides extensive pro bono work, including representing clients as an integral part of “kayak court,” and as a volunteer at many legal clinics.
Kate has been recognized with many national and state awards, including the prestigious Sandra Day O’Connor Award for Professional Service by the American Inns of Court, Utah State Bar Young Lawyer of the Year Award, and the Utah State Bar Pro Bono Publico Young Lawyer of the Year Award. Most recently in 2018, the University of Utah awarded Kate with their Distinguished Alumna award.
