Kristin Whitford is an Associate Attorney with Pratt, Day and Stratton. She brings years of experience working in the litigation arena and an in-depth knowledge of the Industrial Insurance system through several years focusing on Workers’ Compensation and disability cases. She routinely represents employers’ interests before the Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals and aids in obtaining cost-effective claim resolution. Kristin has litigated numerous cases in front of the Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals and Washington State Superior Court.

Kristin strives to produce great results for her clients through her litigation and counseling skills, and to aggressively represent self-insured employers to obtain the best possible result. Because of her perspective as a former Claimant’s attorney, she brings a unique understanding of the challenges and complexities involved in Workers’ Compensation cases and she believes strongly in preserving the integrity of the Industrial Insurance system through a proactive and collaborative defense of Washington employers.

Kristin received her Bachelor’s degree in Comparative Sociology from the University of Puget Sound, then received her Juris Doctorate from Seattle University where she received the President’s Scholarship. She is a member of the Washington State Bar Association, Washington Self-Insurance Section, and Washington Trial Defense Lawyers’ Pro Bono & Community Service Committee, and serves as chair elect for the WSBA’s Trial Advocacy Program.  Kristin was awarded a “Top Rated Workers’ Compensation Lawyer” by Super Lawyers Magazine in 2017 and 2018.

Before coming to the Pacific Northwest for undergraduate school at the University of Puget Sound, Kristin was born and raised in Southern California. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and their new baby, traveling, running half marathons and relaxing with a good show.
