About Me

I have been in the legal profession since I graduated from college in 1994.  I started my career as a paralegal.  During my time as a paralegal, I worked in a plaintiff's personal injury firm in Connecticut while my husband (and current law partner) was in law school, and later as a senior litigation paralegal at a large firm in Washington, D.C.  I attended law school at night and worked during the day. 

Outside of the office I keep busy with my young children-- two sons and daughter--all of whom have crazy schedules.  I also enjoy movies, reading and travel.
