  • Meet Me

    What do you enjoy most about your practice?

    I love the chess match. No two cases are exactly the same and you have to constantly think creatively to come up with the best strategies for each case. And I get to work with a bunch of really smart, energetic people, including our clients, to figure that out. It’s a lot of fun.

    What is the secret to obtaining successful trial results?

    Communicating your ideas and the client’s story in a way that really connects with the judge and jury. Plus lots of hard work.

    What are your favorite pastimes when you are not practicing law?

    Hanging out with my three daughters, watching movies, and getting outside.
