Kaitlin Nares

Kaitlin Nares is a partner and co-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. They are worried about 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.  These companies have chosen profit over safety—resulting in catastrophic consequences for families. Kaitlin's area of expertise includes truck wreck litigation and traumatic brain injuries. These are some of the toughest civil cases.  They require a mastery of the laws, regulations, science, and medical literature.  Kaitlin is a trial lawyer and willing to hold these large companies accountable. Her goal is to change laws and policies to make our communities safer.   

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.

Kaitlin serves on the board of Colorado Trial Lawyers Association and is a member of the American Academy of Justice's Traumatic Brain Litigation section. 

Kaitlin began her legal career in Manhattan by litigating in the Southern District of New York. Kaitlin has been in courtrooms for over a decade. Kaitlin is featured in the award-winning documentary False Confessions for her litigation work in some of the country's most notorious civil rights cases. Kaitlin is known for her calm demeanor, being quick on her feet, and outworking her opponents. 

Outside of the courtroom, Kaitlin loves being a CEO and business owner; spending quality time with her husband, Paul, and two sons, Brody and Noah; and exploring the Rocky Mountains.
