Kayla Condeni pursues strategies designed to get her clients dismissed from the case at the earliest opportunity, whether through motion practice or negotiations with opposing counsel, while also preparing each case for trial. She exposes both factual and legal weaknesses in the plaintiff’s case to gain leverage throughout litigation, retains the best consultants and experts, and treats each piece of evidence as if it will be presented to a jury.

She is experienced in defending a variety of matters, including medical malpractice, premises liability, employment discrimination, and personal injury. She maintains open and constant communication with her clients to ensure a complete and thorough understanding of the case. This ensures she fully understands her client’s wants, needs, and goals for the successful resolution of all matters.     

In her spare time, Kayla enjoys attending Notre Dame football games with her family.
