Kara’s responsibility as Associate Product Manager is to figure out the right tool for the right job. She understands the needs of legal teams and clients, providing useful direction and feedback to the architects of SeyfarthLean Consulting's customized applications.
With SeyfarthLink as the main technology platform she manages, Kara often acts as an ambassador between software developers and users, all with an eye to improving a product’s overall user experience. Because in the end, these solutions need to help change the way lawyers practice law, with higher-quality services delivered better and faster.
After earning a degree in history and French from the University of Pittsburgh, Kara became interested in a legal career. She worked several years supporting litigation and bankruptcy lawyers before she entered Georgetown University Law Center to pursue her own law degree. By the time she graduated, she was committed to using technology to help transform the profession. Her next step was SLC, where she has been instrumental in the creation and development of SeyfarthLink.
Kara’s fascination with technology extends outside the office, both in pursuing the latest personal tech and playing video games. In her remaining free time, she dotes on her dog and enjoys being the chief motivator, critic and roadie for her husband’s art career.
“When we don’t have solutions immediately apparent or available – which isn’t often – we’re relentless in developing the products or tools that answer the unique needs of our clients.”
