Katelynn Drake

Katelynn is originally from the Niagara Region, but now happily calls London ‘home’. In 2012, she obtained her Bachelor of Nursing degree from Griffith University in Australia, where she graduated at the top of her class and received three Awards for Academic Excellence.


Katelynn gained valuable experience during her nursing education, which spanned across a number of practice areas, including medical/surgical, neurovascular, intensive care, and wound management. Katelynn has also worked in the emergency department and in long-term care.

Katelynn obtained her law degree from the University of Western Ontario, where she was chair of the Health Law Committee and was a case manager at the Sports Solution Legal Clinic. Katelynn’s legal education focused on civil litigation and health law. During law school, Katelynn received the Blake’s Award for Academic Excellence and was active in oral advocacy and dispute resolution competitions. She developed a special interest in the legal issues that face the long-term care homes in Ontario, and has written extensively on that topic.

Katelynn is a dedicated advocate who has appeared in the Superior Court of Ontario, Ontario Court of Justice, and Small Claims Court. She also has experience with the License Appeals Tribunal and the Health Professionals Appeal and Review Board.

Given her medical-legal background, it is no surprise that Katelynn also has a special interest in medical and personal injury litigation, including representing residents of long-term care homes. Together with the highly skilled team at Legate, Katelynn is involved in complex medical negligence and catastrophic injury claims.


In addition to her legal practice, Katelynn has been a volunteer with Pro Bono Ontario’s program for seniors who have been victimized by fraud, the London Food Bank, London Lawyers Feed the Hungry, and the London Branch of the Ronald McDonald House. She is a regular contributor for the quarterly OTLA Medical Malpractice Newsletter as well as other publications, and is a guest lecturer at Western University in the Faculties of Law and Health Science. When not practicing law or volunteering in the community, Katelynn is an avid writer, reader and traveler who has spent time in nearly thirty countries.
