Kayla Knuteson
Legal Assistant

I am a driven, self-motivated person who loves to learn and to explore. I am detailed-oriented and I enjoy solving problems and working closely with people. Wendy and I are a strong team, whether it’s preparing for mediation or resolution through trial. We have been told by several judges that our litigation/mediation exhibits “are a work of art.” I have enjoyed working with Wendy and the rest of the Lems Law Office team since 2012. My biggest reward is helping people the way that we do. I love to have fun and make people laugh. When I’m not working, I enjoy cooking, being outdoors, and spending time with my family and friends. I am a great listener, and am often the individual that others come to for advice.

I am the first person you will speak to at Lems Law Office and probably the last, as I will gladly give you your congratulations hug when your case is finalized.  I have been with Wendy since she opened her own practice in 2003.  I keep the office organized and running smoothly.  I am proudly known as the “Momma Bear” of the office.  I pride myself on taking care of my family, both at home and at the office.  When not at the office, you will find me donating my time to various community organizations, including Ladies of Elks and Benevolent Patriotic Order of DOES.  In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family and adorable puppy, Bella.
