Kristin Norfleet

Kristin L. Norfleet
Partner, Smith, Sovik, Kendrick & Sugnet, P.C., Syracuse

Kristin L. Norfleet, Esq. is a partner at the Syracuse law firm of Smith, Sovik, Kendrick & Sugnet, P.C.

While the firm is centrally located in Syracuse, she handles cases throughout the state of New York.

She earned her Juris Doctor degree at Case Western Reserve University School of Law. She also received a Master of Arts degree in biomedical ethics from Case Western, and received her Bachelor of Arts in political science from the University of Rochester.

Norfleet, 38, was an associate attorney at Smith Sovik from 2000-2008 before being named a partner on Jan. 1, 2009.

Norfleet specializes in defending people and companies who are sued in personal injury litigation and represents several prominent clients, including AIG Companies, Kemper Insurance Company and Carrols LLC, the largest Burger King restaurant franchisee in the United States. In addition to her busy law practice and home life, Norfleet is president of the House Corporation Board of Gamma Phi Beta Sorority at Syracuse University.

Norfleet and her family also actively support a number of local organizations, including the Oswego Youth Soccer Association, Oswego Little League, Oswego County Humane Society and the Oswego Youth Basketball Association.

Norfleet has two children: Preston, 9, and Addison, 3. "Despite my grueling work schedule, I attend every game, school activity or event in which my kids are involved," she said. "In my profession, there are few women who maintain a full-time schedule/caseload who also have children," she said. "I travel all over the state representing my clients, but am home every night to be with my kids. I spend every day trying to balance being a great mom with a professional career."
