Katie Kelsch Dowell

Katie Kelsch Dowell is an attorney and founding partner of Capital City Law. She is licensed to practice in North Carolina.

Katie is a life-long resident of Raleigh, North Carolina, who wanted to be a lawyer since she was a little girl. She fulfilled that dream while married to her wonderful husband of twelve years, Jeff Dowell, and with two of the coolest kids to walk the face of the planet in tow – Joshua, 13, and Levi, 7. She is a diehard NC State Fan, recreational ballroom dancer, avid reader of romance novels, and former makeup artist. A member of North Ridge Country Club since she was a toddler, Katie also grew up playing golf, plays as often as she can, and has a twelve handicap to show for her efforts.

When she’s not golfing or spending time with her family, Katie is an active rescue volunteer and foster coordinator for Cause For Paws of NC. In that role, she coordinates rescue, transport, foster, and adoption of dogs and puppies from county shelters all over the state. You will always find her feet surrounded by a cloud of foster puppies that put a smile on her face and drive her very patient husband insane.

Katie is an alumni of several Raleigh-based educational institutions: Cardinal Gibbons High School, North Carolina State University, and Campbell Law School. She graduated from North Carolina State magna cum laude with a double major in Political Science Law and Justice and Philosophy of Law. In her time at NC State, she became a member of several grade-based honor societies and received an Undergraduate Research Award for her philosophy research.

Katie went on to receive her law degree at Raleigh’s very own Campbell Law School. While at Campbell, among other things, she participated in the Senior Law Clinic, was a member of the Moot Court Team, and successfully avoided losing her mind attending law school with two small children.

Katie is licensed to practice in North Carolina. She focuses much of her practice on Commercial and Residential Real Estate, Real Estate Litigation, Estate Planning, and Appellate Work
