Simply the best!
I can't say enough about Kristin and her paralegal, Jana Kim. They are kind, caring, compassionate people. After my accident, I could barely think for myself. They took care of everything for me, I did very little. They worked tirelessly for me and I appreciate everything they did. If you need an attorney, Kristin is the one. I will be forever grateful. I felt more like a friend instead of just a client.

Put at ease
Kristin Cafferty put me at ease and made me feel better the first day I met her. Kristin and her paralegal Melissa Richer were great to work with. I was kept informed along the way and was happy with my settlement. My only regret is not contacting Kristin sooner.

Highly competent and caring
I highly recommend Kristin. She’s so caring and thorough. Her para-legal Jana Kim is a great asset. Fantastic team. She got me more than I thought I would. I wish I would of not waited a year to seek help. She gave me first sense of relief since the accident and long recovery.

Very Reliable, Helpful, and Friendly
I spent a long time looking for an attorney and after being turned away from many firms, Janna and Kristin took my case knowing that it would be a lengthy process and the payout may not be very big. Janna and Kristin were there any time I needed to contact them. They were reliable, trustworthy, and I was able to have open communication with them .

Great Experience and Outcome
I had a great experience with Kristin Cafferty and her paralegal Angela Mayer. They treated me with great respect and I felt at all times that they were looking out for my best interests and future. I received a very favorable settlement and would highly recommend them if you need a lawyer for a car accident.

Successful outcome
She got my settlement in a reasonable amount of time and she’s the nicest person ever, highly recommended.

Would recommend to everyone!
Kristin and her team have been with me since 3 days after my accident. She came to my home and found out everything she could and hasn't stopped fighting for me since. I'm so glad I called her to represent me. She always kept me informed and always checked in to see how I was doing personally through out our years long case. I'm actually going to miss having her around! If you're looking for a lawyer who cares not only about your case, but also you as a person, Kristin is the one to see.
