About Me 

Hello!  I am a criminal defense lawyer and I absolutely love what I do.  Before going to law school I received my masters degree in criminal justice.  I went to law school knowing exactly what I wanted to do - fight for justice for everyone.  While in law school I worked on death penalty cases and volunteered at two different federal criminal defense offices.  Upon graduation, I went to the Hennepin County Public Defenders Officer where I received incredible litigation training from some of the best criminal defense lawyers in the state and country.  One of them remains my mentor, the other became my boss!  I continue to have a blast.  I also work incredibly hard to ensure all of my clients are given incredible representation and feel as comfortable as possible going through what can be a very uncomfortable time.  Given my experience in Minnesota, I know how the court system works and I am comfortable in any courtroom.  

I could add a few personal facts, but what you really care about is my commitment to my clients, and that is unwavering!
