PHILADELPHIA (April 2016) - National law firm Chamberlain, Hrdlicka, White, Williams & Aughtry is pleased to announce the addition of attorney Katherine Schadler Jordan as an associate in its Philadelphia office. Jordan, who will work in the firm’s tax controversy and litigation practice, previously clerked for Judge Joseph W. Nega at the United States Tax Court.
“We are excited to welcome Katherine to Chamberlain Hrdlicka, and particularly to our Philadelphia office,” said Chamberlain Hrdlicka shareholder Phil Karter. “Considering how often we litigate in the Tax Court, adding a former judicial clerk with her experience drafting judicial opinions, orders, and decisions is an ideal fit for our tax team.”
Prior to clerking for Judge Nega, Jordan was an attorney with the Charlotte, North Carolina firm of Moore & Van Allen, PLLC, where she drafted estate planning documents for high net worth clients. Jordan additionally counseled clients on reducing both their federal and state tax liability and provided advice and counsel to clients facing gift and estate tax audits by the IRS.
After graduating from Duke University with a degree in political science, Jordan went on to earn her J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law. A member of the North Carolina Bar, Katherine is admitted to practice before the United States Tax Court and the U.S. District Court for the Western District of North Carolina.
