Get to Know: Kristen Weaver
Why did you get into Personal Injury Law? “I got into personal injury law for the totally cliché reason, to help people. I just thought that the system had gotten too complicated and people were really being treated unfairly for instances that they truly weren’t responsible for and it just wasn’t fair. I wanted to be the person that stood up for them, fought for them, and got them what they felt they deserved. Another cliché is that “nothing in life is fair,” but I’d really like to step in where I can to help change that.”
