Our Team


Before practicing law, Brian Cathey worked as both a roofer and a derivatives trader. Now as a lawyer, he still fights for success by combining hard work and strategy. 

Brian graduated summa cum laude, the highest academic distinction, from Georgia State University College of Law.  While at Georgia State, he was a member of the Student Trial Lawyers Association and the Georgia State Law Review. 

Upon graduation, Brian was named to the Order of the Coif (for exceptional academic performance) and to the Order of Barristers (for exceptional oral advocacy), making him one of only four Georgia State Law students to ever receive both honors. 

Brian's practice has focused primarily on medical malpractice and wrongful death, and he is admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the State of Georgia, as well as all other trial and appellate courts in the State of Georgia, and the Northern District of Georgia federal court.

He lives in Athens with his wife, Billie, and their dog, Spaghetti.


Prior to joining Brian Cathey Law, Evelyn completed two paralegal internships under Mr. Cathey. She will graduate in May with honors from Athens Technical College with an associate of applied science degree in Paralegal Studies approved by the American Bar Association. She is a commissioned notary public in Oconee County and has earned her Paralegal Mastery of Lexis Advance Certification. 

Evelyn supports Brian Cathey in all phases of litigation in multiple practice areas including medical malpractice, criminal defense, and wrongful death. Her responsibilities include conducting initial client interviews, drafting pleadings, providing support during the trial process, and law office administration. 

In her spare time, Evelyn enjoy cooking, running, and spending time at the beach with her husband and their two dogs.
