Athena M. Dufour


Athena Dufour is an Associate Attorney at Zimmer Kunz, PLLC whose legal practice focuses on insurance defense, general liability, products liability, employment, and toxic torts.

Athena’s experience in the legal field began before law school when she worked as a litigation paralegal for a civil defense law firm in Richmond, Virginia. After graduating from the University of Richmond School of Law, Athena clerked for the Honorable C.N. Jenkins, Jr. and Bradley B. Cavedo in the Circuit Court for the City of Richmond in Richmond, Virginia. Pivoting to Pennsylvania, Athena then worked as an associate attorney at a mid-sized civil defense law firm where she gained valuable experience handling insurance defense, general liability, and insurance coverage matters in various state and federal venues across the state.

When she’s not working, Athena enjoys spending time exploring Pittsburgh’s restaurant scene. Her favorite things to do include listening to true crime podcasts, weight lifting, watching football and hockey, and reading a good book.
