About me

I take a client-centered approach to legal services. I know that the legal system can be confusing and complicated. I consider my client's legal goals and best interests to be the most important driving force for my practice. 

I began my legal career as a litigation and bankruptcy paralegal in a Northeast Indiana law firm.  This experience provided me with knowledge of many areas of law, including bankruptcy, family law, criminal law, estate probate and planning, business law and litigation.  I made the decision to attend law school so that I could use expand my legal knowledge and use my skill as a paralegal to help more individuals with legal problems.
