Norm Katnik Jr. earned his Juris Doctor from Trinity Law School, located in Santa Ana, California, in May 2013. After preparing for, and successfully passing the July 2013 Bar Exam, Norm joined his father and brother at Katnik & Katnik Lawyers, eager to represent the family practice in its third generation.

Norm had a successful four-year career in the National Football League (NFL), playing for the San Francisco 49ers, the New York Jets, the Minnesota Vikings, and finally, the Denver Broncos. Upon realizing his NFL career had come to an end, he embarked on a new journey in sales before attending law school.

Norm earned a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from the College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences at the University of Southern California. Norm was a member of the 1999-2003 USC football teams, serving as the team’s starting center. Highlights of his football career include being one of five finalists for the Rimington Award (nation’s top collegiate center), a 2003 Orange Bowl win in Miami, Florida, against the Iowa Hawkeyes, and a NCAA Championship with a victory in the 2004 Rose Bowl against the Michigan Wolverines.

Norm lives in Tustin with his wife, Leah, and their three children. Norm enjoys the beautiful year-round weather in sunny Southern California. His favorite days are spent at the beach with his family.
