About me


I was born and raised in the Chicagoland area. Since I was a small child my passion has been helping people. In kindergarten I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up and from even that early age I knew I wanted to be a lawyer. Now that I have my own children and they are my greatest joy and source of inspiration. I Treat each client as a person who I want to help and get to know. By building a strong partnership with each client I am better equipped to help not only with today's issues but also planning for the future.
