Kaitlyn Cramer is a fierce competitor, representing clients in first-party no-fault, third-party automobile negligence, premises liability, product liability, and other insurance defense matters.

Kaitlyn’s interest in the law dates back to middle school, when she recognized her love of learning and history in particular. As she developed an awareness of international issues, she became motivated by powerful women on the global stage, many of whom were lawyers.

A strong student, she earned multiple academic scholarships at Michigan State University’s James Madison College, where she pursued a bachelor’s degree in International Relations as a member of the Honors College, and served in a year-long internship in former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm’s administration.

Kaitlyn went on to receive her law degree at Wayne State University, again earning various scholarships on the way to graduating with honors. She successfully competed in several intramural, national, and international moot court competitions; served as the moot court Outside Competitions Director; and was Assistant Editor and Symposium Editor of the Wayne Law Review. Kaitlyn continues to give back to students at her alma mater and elsewhere by participating in on-campus orientation programs and as a judge in the Jessup International Moot Court competition.

During law school, Kaitlyn was a summer associate with a full-service firm in Saginaw, Michigan, joining the firm after graduation and working in its Labor & Employment and Business Immigration practice groups. Looking for greater opportunities to be in the courtroom and to take part in Detroit’s revival, she came to Zausmer, August & Caldwell in 2014.
