Kristen Blanton

Kristen Blanton is an Associate in the Los Angeles office at Murchison & Cumming, LLP. Her background includes clerking at a law firm handling employment matters, where she focused on class action wage and hour settlements, wrongful termination claims, and discrimination lawsuits. She drafted a variety of legal documents, including complaints, motions, and long-form settlement agreements. Kristen transitioned into overseeing legal business affairs at a production studio that focuses on film and television development and production, leveraging her interest in employment law.

During law school, Kristen interned with the Los Angeles District Attorney's office in their domestic violence unit. She was one of two students selected for a yearlong internship with the Children's Law Center of California, where she had the pleasure of representing children who have been abused, neglected, or abandoned who fall under the protection of the Dependency Court Systems.

She earned a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice Administration from California State University, Dominguez Hills, before obtaining her J.D. from Southwestern Law School with a concentration in Trial Advocacy.

Outside the office, Kristen is a globe-trotting enthusiast, a savvy shopper, and a culinary adventurer. She enjoys spending time with her son, whose curiosity knows no bounds.
