Kaitlin Nares is a partner and founder of Hagen Nares PLLC. Kaitlin is known for her compassion, professionalism, and clear communication. Kaitlin co-founded Hagen Nares PLLC as the culmination of her passion for the law and her desire to help families that have been severely injured at no fault of their own. Kaitlin empathizes with her clients because she identifies with her clients. As a mother, Kaitlin understands that countless people are waking up in the middle of the night worried about themselves or their injured spouses and children, mounting medical bills, missed calls from debt collectors, lost work, and the run-around from insurance companies. Kaitlin believes that these people deserve a caring and patient advocate.
Kaitlin is experienced going toe to toe with the nation’s largest insurance companies. Her area of expertise includes motor vehicle collisions, 18-wheel and commercial vehicle collisions, wrongful death, dog bite, ski and snowboarding collisions, and slip or trip and falls. Kaitlin also has years of experience litigating civil rights injustices in some of the nation’s toughest state and federal courthouses. Kaitlin is featured in the 2019 award winning documentary, False Confessions and was part of the skilled litigation team in Manhattan’s $40 million Central Park Jogger litigation. Kaitlin is a graduate of Vanderbilt University and St. John’s School of Law. Kaitlin’s commitment to fighting injustice began earlier in life and continues to guide her passion for the law and devotion to her clients to this day.
Kaitlin prioritizes communication and understanding, and values honesty and trustworthiness. Kaitlin lays out for her clients the complicated process of collecting against insurance companies. She then educates her clients on their diagnosed injuries and paints a picture of their medically recommended long-term treatment needs. Along the way, Kaitlin takes over the frustrating, and many times, disheartening, phone calls with insurance adjusters. She communicates with her clients during each step of the process so they can make well informed legal decisions. Kaitlin is trial tested and will advocate for your family.
Outside of the office, Kaitlin loves spending time with her husband, son, and two rescue dogs. Kaitlin also enjoys the simpler things, such as coffee-shop conversations, avid reading, hikes, snowboarding, and volunteering on community boards.
