About Me

Community service and hard work have been taught to me since birth.  I spent my early years being actively involved in volunteer and community organizations. 


As an attorney, I enjoy working hard to serve my clients with their workers' compensation and social security disability claims.  As my current clients would attest to, I do not simply hang up my hat at the end of each work day. 


It is not uncommon to hear from me on weekends or in the early evenings at times if a new issue arises in your claim, and I want to touch base with you to give my advice on how to proceed.


I work hard to provide the best quality legal service to my clients throughout their claim.  I do this because I care about my clients as individuals; and because I try for achieving the best results possible in your case.. 


 


Outside of work, I can usually be found outdoors, exploring forest preserves and state parks with my husband, two daughters, and our (mostly) well trained dogs.
