My name is Ellen Pares. I am a Senior Litigation Adjuster working for Kemper – A Unitrin Business. I have 35 years of claim handling experience and have handled personal and commercial lines including worker’s compensation both as a supervisor and as an adjuster.   I have had many years of experience working with various defense firms and attorneys including Smith Sovik Kendrick & Sugnet and specifically with Kristin Norfleet, of this firm.  My experience with Kristin has always been positive.  I find that Kristin is always pleasant, and cooperative but more importantly, she always does an excellent job of defending her clients/our insureds.  She is quickly responsive, has excellent defense strategies and this generally results in very good resolutions.  I am pleased with this firm’s work and would recommend them.

As a Litigation Specialist with PRMS, Inc., I retained Kevin to represent a psychiatrist in a difficult medical malpractice case. Kevin obtained a defense verdict in behalf of the doctor. Kevin is a no-nonsense, hard-nosed and savvy attorney whom plaintiff attorneys would prefer not to go up against-a guy who likes to try cases and just what you're looking for in a defense attorney. Kevin has obtained several other great outcomes for me. He is my go-to attorney for all cases in his neck of the woods and I highly recommend him without reservation.
