Profile

Hi there,

I’m a legal news reporter based in the San Francisco Bay Area. I currently cover trials and high-profile hearings for Law360.

I began my journalism career as a high school intern at The Miami Herald in 2005.  Since, I’ve written for The Aspen Daily News, The Daily Journal, Aspen Peak Magazine, KQED, Aspen Public Radio, Colorado Public Radio and the San Francisco-based MissionLocal. I also have a master’s degree from U.C. Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism. In grad school, I spent most of my time producing a couple of radio shows,  filming a short documentary and teaching general education courses in the rhetoric and microbiology departments. Most of the work posted on this site was produced before 2016.

When I’m not writing on deadline, you can find me hanging out with my dog Bennie, hiking in the Berkeley hills. I can be reached by e-mail at dorothy.atkins@gmail.com.
