A Personalized Team Approach
Kristine and Monique practice law as a team. This approach to practicing law is just one way that distinguishes the women from their colleagues. Both Kristine and Monique strive to make client care and communication a top priority. When you call KST Law, you will always speak directly with Kristine and/or Monique. Both women are always fully informed of all details in each and every client’s matter. This close-knit team approach provides incisive, comprehensive and customized service and allows clients to receive the full benefits of two attorneys while only paying for one. Client satisfaction with this unique, personalized, and cost-efficient service has proven to set KST Law apart from many other law firms.
Divorce and Family Law Representation & Mediation Services
A rapidly growing practice area at KST Law is Divorce, Family Law, and Mediation. Changing family dynamics is often stressful, but the women enjoy the creative challenge and are committed to treating the process and the parties in a respectful manner. In a large majority of cases, the women do not see the need for protracted and expensive litigation, that only further erodes families. Kristine and Monique are well suited to this practice area because of their compassionate personalities and the fact that they do things differently and work efficiently to streamline the process, all while maintaining civility, respect, and empathy for all parties involved. Monique explains, “Family Law is highly emotional because it involves the client’s children, personal finances, and family life, and to them, nothing hits closer to home.” For these reasons, Kristine and Monique attempt to make their client’s experience as painless as possible while putting their emotionally and financially distressed clients at ease in the peaceful yet professional surroundings of KST Law.
Personal Injury & Automobile Accidents
Kristine and Monique also pride themselves on the way their Personal Injury/Automobile Accident practice differs from many other firms who often rely on secretaries and paralegals to handle a vast majority of a claim. Instead, Kristine and Monique approach each and every personal injury case with the same time and effort that is required regardless of whether it is a minor $5,000 case or a $500,000+ case. Kristine and Monique truly get to know their clients, their specific treatment and injuries, and all details surrounding their case. “We believe this comprehensive approach allows us to illustrate to an insurance representative, who is otherwise reviewing numerous faceless claims, that our client is someone that they themselves can relate to which can lead to a more successful settlement,” Kristine explains.
Kristine and Monique are each certified mediators and are each licensed to practice law in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Kristine completed her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees at University of Rhode Island and received her Law Degree in 1999 from Northeastern School of Law. Monique is a May 2013 graduate of Roger Williams University School of Law and also completed her Bachelor’s Degree at RWU. Kristine is currently the President of the Jamestown Town Council, Board Member of the Jamestown Chamber of Commerce, and Member of the Newport Chamber of Commerce.
