Kathleen was born on 7 May 1957 in Texas but was brought up in Oklahoma with a tough attitude and a willingness to become an investigative journalist. But her priorities changed, and she went to Northern Illinois University where she studied law and recently arrived in the public’s eye after she took the Steven Avery case and appeared in the second season of the Netflix series ‘Making a Murderer.’
Taking the Steven Avery Case and Appearing in ‘Making a Murderer’
After the first season of 'Making a Murderer' premiered on Netflix on 18 December of 2015, the lawyer took the case of Steven Avery. Steven’s girlfriend wrote to the lawyer for about four years in the past to get her to take the case, and finally, before 2016, she came on board and took over the case.
We meet Zellner when season two premiered in 2018 and showed the lawyer explaining how she will not protect him in any way if there is even a shred of truth he committed the said crime. “I told Steven Avery the same thing I tell everyone. If you hire me and you’re guilty, trust me, I’ll do a way better job than the prosecutors,” she said. “I will find out if you are guilty, and we’re going to do testing. We can’t control the results. The results will be turned over to both sides, so really think about this. You would have to be an idiot to be hiring me to prove that you’re guilty.”

The case is still going on in court, and Zellner found some new evidence of the police and the prosecution not allowing access to the bones of the photographer who was allegedly killed by Avery. Zellner is still fighting for the accused murderer, and she seems confident of getting him off with the court soon, setting a date for the case.
Did Kathleen Zellner Undergo a Plastic Surgery?
There are people on the internet who think the lawyer got some cosmetic work done on her face, but these claims are unfounded with Kathleen seemingly showing off her god given a face to the world. Her nose is slightly different than it used to be when she was young, but she also grew a lot older than her younger photos.
While in court, she sports all her wrinkles, which do not look like the face of a person who went under the knife. There is some obvious sign when a person goes for surgery and get a facelift, or skins stretched, or change their nose. There are no obvious signs she got plastic surgery, so no, Kathleen Zeller did not undergo plastic surgery.
