Kristen M. Lewis began her legal career as a defense litigation attorney. After graduating from The University of Akron School of Law, she joined a defense firm where she litigated personal injury, premises liability, and bad faith actions. Kristen gained valuable experience as a trial attorney throughout the courts of Ohio taking many cases to verdict. She also has argued before the Fifth, Eighth, Ninth, and Tenth District Court of Appeals and has extensive experience in the Ohio Northern and Southern Districts of the Federal Court.

She joined KNR in 2012 and devotes her practice to litigation of personal injury, wrongful death, trucking, personal and commercial insurance coverage, and bad faith claims. Her experience as a defense litigation attorney has provided her with the background to successfully represent her clients throughout the litigation process, including resolution at mediation or through trial.

Kristen grew up in Pennsylvania where she attended Washington and Jefferson College. She now resides in Green with her husband and their two boys. She is an avid sports fan and enjoys coaching her son’s soccer team. Kristen and her family volunteer for various organizations to spread awareness for breast cancer research and to find a cure.
