Kelly Runge: Legal Assistant in Search of Waterfalls


At TorHoerman Law we believe that it is our employees’ and their combined individual personalities that make TorHoerman Law stand out as a firm. We value what makes us unique, so each month, we make a point to feature one of our amazing employees as part of the “THL People Series.” This month features the incredibly kind and friendly Kelly Runge.

When she’s not reviewing medical records or spending time with her family, Kelly Runge is an avid nature lover always in search of her next adventure. Her thoughtfulness and generosity do not go unnoticed throughout the office. Whether she is offering to bring something back from the store or asking about how your mom’s birthday two weeks ago went, the day is always a little better when Kelly is around.

Since this is my first time writing for the THL People Series, I was excited to sit down and interview Kelly. When I started at THL just over a month ago, Kelly was immediately welcoming, offering kindness and encouragement. She is always willing to answer a question and put a positive spin on any situation. It’s not just me, all of us at TorHoerman Law, are excited to work with such caring person on a day-to-day basis. Whatever the situation, Kelly is able to find a silver lining.


Q: What do you do here at TorHoerman Law?

A: Oh goodness. I order medical records and do the medical review. I work on personal injury lawsuits, including medical malpractice, pharmaceutical, medical devices, and just about everything else they do here. It’s my job to get the medical side of things ready so that the legal assistant to file the case.
