Attorney Spotlight - Kelly Iverson

Q&A WITH KELLY

Why did you become a lawyer?

I wish I could say that I always knew I wanted to be a lawyer, but that’s not true. My friend invited me to Penn State when I was a Junior in college to take a practice LSAT for free and I did alright without studying, which is the first time I ever thought about it. After working for five years in insurance I figured I’d take the LSAT for real and apply. While not a long-planned decision, it was a great one!

What are three things you couldn’t survive without?

My family, coffee, and my iPhone.

Favorite musician or band?

I am still stuck in my late 1990’s punk/emo phase, but the Beastie Boys will always have my heart.

Favorite thing to do on the weekend?

You’ll find me on the sidelines at softball and hockey for my kids on most weekends. I also love going out for dinner and drinks (I’m partial to IPAs) with my husband.

Most memorable court room experience?

My very first (bench) trial where I served as lead trial counsel in a medical malpractice and obtained a verdict for my client for the maximum statutory recovery allowed.
