Kirsten Curtis has spent her entire legal career assisting Special Investigation Units with defense of first and third party claims and preparing insurance coverage opinions.  She has taken her experience into litigation of first and third party insurance claims, where she has been complimented for her deposition and trial skills.

Kirsten has handled dozens of mandated and binding arbitrations, and has successfully handled jury and bench trials in Oregon and Washington, both in state and federal court. Kirsten also sits as an arbitrator in Multnomah County, Oregon.

Prior to joining Thenell Law Group, Kirsten worked in Portland, Oregon at a large litigation firm focused primarily on insurance defense. She graduated from the James E. Rogers College of Law at the University of Arizona, and is admitted to practice in Oregon and Washington.  In law school, Kirsten volunteered with the Volunteer Lawyers Project, and represented clients as a 38(d) law student in family law matters.  She served as the Student Bar Association vice-president, and interned at the Pima County Attorney’s Office in the criminal division.

Kirsten enjoys volunteering within her community. She currently sits as a judge for the Beaverton Youth Peer Court, assists non-profit organizations with their start-up paperwork, and volunteers with the Multnomah County Bar Association's Will for Heroes program.

When not helping clients fight potential insurance fraud, Kirsten enjoys running her hobby farm, watching her daughters discover new things, supporting the Oregon State Beavers, and baking new delicacies to bring into the firm.
