Kara A. Somerstein

Kara A. Somerstein is associate counsel at the firm.

  During law school, Ms. Somerstein interned for an insurance defense firm, for Union Square Hospitality Group and for the Law Firm of Amy Jane Agnew, P.C., where she served as one of our Law Student Clerks for a summer.  In our Law Student Clerk program, Ms. Somerstein worked on several complex federal prisoner rights cases and meaningfully assisted in a successful federal contempt proceeding.

  After law school, Ms. Somerstein practiced as a commercial litigator at a boutique firm in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. There, Ms. Somerstein assisted clients with commercial real estate, foreclosure, malpractice, and other general business litigation matters.

   Ms. Somerstein recently returned to work at The Law Office of Amy Jane Agnew, P.C. (we're thrilled!) to continue doing the work she loves -- advocating for vulnerable plaintiffs.   Undoubtedly a skilled litigator, Ms. Somerstein is also truly gifted at developing trusting relationships with our clients that allow effective representation. 

  In her free time, Ms. Somerstein focuses on her family and pursues her love of recreational alpine skiing.
