About Me

I  joined Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P.C. in March of 2012 and became a Partner in January of 2014. I concentrate my practice in the areas of personal injury, medical malpractice and wrongful death.  Prior to joining Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard, I was an associate at an insurance defense firm where I successfully tried over 75 cases to verdict before a jury. In all, I have negotiated and settled hundreds of cases throughout my career thus far.  In addition to practicing law I regularly serve as an arbitrator in both Cook and Lake Counties and have also coached the Chicago-Kent College of Law Trial Team for competition in mock trials at national trial competitions.
