W hat sets Kristine Reveille apart from her peers in the medical mal- practice defense arena? Those who have worked with her and argued cases against her point to her ability to understand and explain complex medical and legal issues in a way that is relatable to everyone. They also cite her passion and deep knowledge of medical law. Combine that with a refusal to be outworked by anyone and a deep commitment to her clients? It's no wonder that Reveille has built a reputa- tion as one of the top medical malpractice professionals in the city. “Kristine possesses a confident yet not arrogant way of communicating and advo- cating her position,” said Gerald Bekkerman, founding partner of Chicago law firm Taxman Pollock Murray & Bekkerman. “She has a reputation for being intelligent yet reasonable without insulting your adver- sarial position. She speaks candidly about the matters that she handles and can ar- gue her position while focusing on the positives but also admitting the negatives.” During her career, Reveille has earned several big victories for clients. This includes the positive result she won in a case involv- ing a neurological injury. Reveille knew that the legal arguments presented by the plain- tiff were difficult and required top experts and legal analysis to overcome. Reveille spent long hours crafting her arguments and brought in qualified ex- perts to overcome the allegations. In the end? Thanks largely to Reveille's skill, she earned a positive result for her client. “I can always trust Kristine to provide me with an honest and thoughtful dis- cussion on legal matters,” said Jessica Kray, manager of claims and litigation with

Northwestern Memorial HealthCare. “Her analysis is never narrow-minded and con- siders all arguments and strengths and weaknesses. Working with Kristine is a pleasure, and she has an extremely promis- ing career in medical malpractice litigation and beyond.” Reveille has appeared before Thom- as Lyons, judge with the Circuit Court of Cook County, several times during her ca- reer, both for trial and pre-trial settlement conferences. She also tried a complex medical malpractice jury trial to verdict in Lyons' courtroom. Lyons said that Reveille's legal skills were clear during this trial. And in the end? The jury found no liability against Reveille's doctor client. “She exemplifies professionalism and courtesy while zealously representing her clients,” Lyons said. “She is always well pre- pared and is an example of what an attor- ney should be.” During her career, Reveille has remained active with the alumni organizations at both Northwestern University and Loyola University School of Law. This includes serving as a guest lecturer during Loyola's Practical Skills Bootcamp and its Litigation Seminar. She has also mentored law stu- dents and recent graduates through the Il- linois Supreme Court Mentoring Program. Reveille has co-chaired her firm's Invest- ing in Justice Campaign, a task that includ- ed coordinating a large-scale fund-rais- er with the Chicago Bar Foundation. In addition, she has volunteered with The Auxiliary Board of Northwestern Memorial Hospital in conjunction with the hospital's efforts to raise funds for cancer research.
