About me

I have been representing plaintiffs in personal injury cases for over a decade.  I am passionate about the law and about making sure that individuals have access to the civil justice system.  I reside in Farmington with my husband, George.  I have two beautiful granddaughters.  I have two children.  Danielle lives in Bristol with my two granddaughters, and Matthew was tragically killed in Mali in 2006 while serving in the Peace Corps.
