Tell us about your background

I was born and raised in America, but moved to England when I was 19 to attend university in London. My 1 year abroad turned into almost 13 years of living, studying and working in England.  I worked as a litigator in England performing Plaintiff only work. I came back to the US in the summer of 2012 with my young children for a vacation, but ended up getting a temp job in the transvaginal mesh department in one of the nation’s largest Plaintiffs’ litigation firms. A 6 week assignment turned into 5 ½ years of work there.

In the last 3 years of my time working in a law firm, it was very hard to find both good legal assistants and paralegals to work in the department. I cannot begin to calculate the immense amount of time (as well as costs) spent on interviews and training, which took me away from my own workload. When a new starter would then leave the firm, I would have to go through their work to see what was done and not done as well as do my own work, with the whole hiring cycle recommencing.  It was inefficient, costly and due to the above mentioned issues, I decided to start Torres Legal Services as to provide a solution to the issues.

When I was a child, I wanted to save the world, but I was not sure how I could achieve that dream and eventually I found the answer in a legal career. When a person pursues a case whether it lasts a few months or years, it definitely consumes their lives and lives of their family and friends. The case is always on a person’s mind, it causes a lot of stress, worry, and anxiety – it can become their whole world. The law can be confusing and hard to understand. The law allows me to save the world – case by case. I have the experience of a litigator and senior paralegal with American and international experience.

Aren’t most of these functions are handled within the law firm?

Outsourcing is a great option to law firms, because Torres Legal Services can start work on projects, almost immediately and we act as an extension to the firm’s team.  It eliminates precious time from staff lost to interviewing and training new staff.  In addition, firms do not have to incur the cost associated with recruitment, salary and benefits of new staff (not forgetting the IT costs and office space needs). By outsourcing work, law firm staff can focus solely, on bringing in new cases and growing their business and leave administrative tasks such as medical reviews to Torres Legal Services.

We are trained and well versed in HIPAA rules to make sure that all security protocols are followed.

NOTE* Torres Legal Services does not provide legal advice or litigate cases!*

About the Author:

I’m National News Editor, Jane Akre and I began Mesh Medical Device News Desk aka Mesh News Desk (MND) in the summer of 2011 just after the Food and Drug Administration issued an explicit warning to the public that complications associated with surgical mesh used for prolapse repair (POP) and incontinence (SUI) are NOT rare! That was the starting point for the litigation you see today and thousands of lawsuits have been filed by women whose lives have been altered, some permanently, by the use of this petroleum-based product.

    I cannot recommend Kara Torres-Kilgannon highly enough. She represented me whilst she was a lawyer in England. I found her to be extremely professional and proficient in her job. She was very approachable and friendly when speaking to her and she always did what she said she was going to do and you always received a response back. Her duty of care to her clients is highly commendable and I never had worries or concerns about my claim. As I fully expected because I had 100% faith in Kara I won my claim and received compensation. I am just sorry and very sorry that we have lost a fantastic lawyer now that Kara is in America. Thank you very much Kara and thank you for restoring my faith in lawyers. Highly recommended

      Tina- I have removed your last name to protect you. Will your lawyer drop your case? Will she do so with no liens on her own behalf? IF not, how much does she want to charge you? Finding another lawyer is tricky because so few are taking these cases anymore…. yours has to be valuable to them. janeakre@meshnewsdesk.com

        Thank you for all you do for us,. It’s been 7 year fight for me we nevver got around to all the lawyer talk. As soon as I said no on offer she said they would not represent me anymore. Now I’m a strong woman and will not be bullied by anyone when I know it’s not right. I started with nothing and I still have most of it left. I have carried so much hate,anger and confused on are American judicial system. That money doesn’t matter I just want my life back. Now the stress I’m sure of everything my husband had major heart problem and going to have to retire soon so now we will both be done working. God bless these big companies they don’t have to answer to me but. One day they will answer to someone higher up. They can’t buy their way out then. Thanks Jane

          Gotta love a lawyer who treats you that way. What about working with your to either negotiate further on your behalf or coming to an understanding with you why that can’t happen,,,,,its hard to know what they are thinking but the harsh treatment seems like adding insult to injury…could you tell Me who your lawyer is? I’m sorry Privately,,,Janeakre@Meshnewsdesm.com
