Toledo, Ohio, June 2, 2015 – Ever since its creation in 2005, Kisling, Nestico & Redick has focused its efforts on representing plaintiffs in personal injury lawsuits resulting from work injuries and motor vehicle accidents as well as medical malpractice and dangerous drugs and devices.
On May 4, the firm officially expanded its efforts to Toledo, opening a brand new 4,000 square foot office at 4853 Monroe St.
“We’ve had a satellite office in Toledo for about seven years now,” said KNR Managing Partner Rob Nestico. “But given the recent increase in traffic fatalities being reported by the Ohio State Highway Patrol, particularly in the Toledo area, we felt there was more of a need for our services.
“The firm decided to focus exclusively on personal injury law so that our lawyers could really hone their skills,” said Nestico. “More than half of our attorneys have previously worked for insurance companies or firms that defend insurance companies. They are now using their insider knowledge of insurance carriers’ strategies to level the playing field for our clients.”
The Toledo office will include litigation lawyer Christopher Corrigan and prelitigation attorney Anthony Hall along with three paralegals.
Corrigan joined the firm’s Akron office in 2013. As an undergraduate, he attended The Ohio State University, working in the Ohio General Assembly while in school to help people resolve government and legal problems. Corrigan received his juris doctor from Cleveland State University, ClevelandMarshall College of Law.
Before joining KNR, Corrigan spent nearly 10 years at an insurance defense law firm. “My time defending insurance companies helped me determine which side I really wanted to be on,” Corrigan said. “Having firsthand knowledge of how these companies operate has proven to be invaluable in my ability to represent innocent victims.”
In Hall’s case, he received a bachelor of business administration in corporate finance from The University of Toledo and his juris doctor from The University of Toledo College of Law.
During law school, Hall also worked fulltime at Austin Associates, a company which advises financial institutions. He then went on to serve as a general practitioner at Barga, Anderson & Hall in Tiffin, before joining the team at KNR in February 2014.
“I was working out of KNR’s Columbus office when Rob approached me and asked if I wanted to help manage the office in Toledo,” said Hall. “I consider Toledo home so I was very happy to accept the challenge and opportunity to serve my community.
“My role here is preparing and resolving cases before trial. If we can’t reach a satisfactory resolution for our clients without going to court, they will be turned over to attorney Corrigan who specializes in the litigation aspect.”
“KNR has a reputation for seeing a case through to the end, even if that means litigating it,” said Nestico. “We have nearly 30 lawyers throughout our ten locations in Ohio and that gives us a lot of manpower to help our clients. Insurance companies know that we will litigate if necessary and that sets us apart from other firms.”
While there are two attorneys in the Toledo office right now, Nestico said a third lawyer would be starting shortly.
Nestico is predicting the office will see even more growth in the future.
“When we started a physical office in Columbus, we had two lawyers,” he said. “We’ve already tripled that plus added additional support staff. We are expecting history to repeat itself in Toledo, much in the way it has in every market we’ve entered into.”
