“I am a licensed California attorney. When my sister was injured in Portland, I turned to Kristen West McCall. Kristen was responsive, diligent and most importantly, went beyond expectations in the pursuit of compensation for my sister. I would recommend her unconditionally.”
Martin Fleisher
“Kristen West McCall was my savior. I was lost and injured after my accident. My insurance company didn't want me to receive the treatment my doctors said I needed, and the IME doctors agreed. Kristen was amazing! She told me to get the treatment I felt I needed. She continued to advocate my case to the insurance company. They fought us every step of the way. She told me to be patient and answered every silly question I had along the way. Ultimately she was able to get the insurance company to pay all of medical bills. I would have been completely taken advantage of by my insurance company, without her help.”
Sam Mullenaux
“Kristen West McCall worked so diligently to get as fair a settlement as possible. Even when I was ready to give up, she would not! Thanks, Kristen!”

“Kristen had a highly professional, tactical approach coupled with a caring attitude to handle a difficult personal injury case in a way that helped me feel at ease. Having never needed a lawyer for an injury case, I wasn't sure what to expect. She communicated clearly and regularly with a no-pressure style that helped me wrap my head around my best course of action. I always felt like I was in great hands. She has an extensive network within her firm, as well as nationally, that she can draw from to make sure her advice is supported by the best practices of the legal world. I was referred to her by a close friend who also benefited from choosing Kristen and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to a friend or family member as well. I didn't feel like I was lost in a maze of receptionists and referrals while working with her. Kristen made me feel like I was her main client. After a long duration of time (due to uncontrollable circumstances from the opposing side), Kristen was able to negotiate a strong settlement for me thus avoiding trial. Kristen is a pleasure to work with and she got a great result for me.”

Kristen took my case and was helpful and kept me informed throughout the different stages of this journey. I never had a question that was not answered and I always felt like I was a priority. Appreciated all her hard work and dedication. Would highly recommend her!
