Prompted by a Personal Law class she took in high school, Kristen realized that the aspects she enjoyed in the classroom could be part of her own reality. After she completed her law degree, she focused her practice on civil litigation and later became a member of the MCCM team.
Various mentors have shaped Kristen’s understanding of law. This pantheon of mentors instilled one of the greatest principles Kristen takes with her to MCCM: to treat all clients with respect.

From the outside looking in, Kristen understands the value that law firms need to provide for clients: values such as transparency, efficiency, professionalism, and knowledge.
