Profile

Kristina J. Kamler has been a litigator for more than a decade, defending a broad range of disputes from rapid response and pre-litigation phases through trial and appeals. Her practice has broadly ranged from basic premises liability and auto accident claims to complex gas explosion, toxic tort, sexual assault, intellectual property, construction defect, professional negligence, commercial contract, and third-party insurance claims.

Kristina has thoroughly analyzed evidence of all types to craft discovery and litigation strategies. Executing those strategies, she is well versed in conducting all types of informal and formal discovery, including social media searches, surveillance, FOIA requests, subpoenas, written discovery requests, and depositions, as well as in person inspections of physical evidence and voluminous documentation.

Kristina has worked with experts in a broad range of disciplines to further analyze the evidence and generate expert opinions for use at trial. Combining the evidence discovered and opinions generated with her legal writing and other communication skills, she has obtained multiple voluntary dismissals, Rule 12(b) dismissals, summary judgment dismissals, and stipulated dismissals based upon negotiated settlements. In total, Kristina has brought more than half a billion dollars in claims to a resolution.
