About Me

I am proud to be a lawyer and I truly enjoy working with people. 


I was born and raised in Cicero, Illinois.  I attended Morton East High School followed by Morton College, where I was named Freshman Female Athlete of the Year.  After receiving an Associate's Degree in Commerce, I transferred to Southern Illinois Univeristy at Carbondale to pursue a Bachelor of Science Degree.  Two years later I received a B.S. in Paralegal Studies (major) and Political Science (minor).  I have worked in law firms since graduating from college in 1987.  In 1993 I began attending law school at night at IIT Chicago Kent College of Law while working full-time in a law firm.  Four years later I received a Juris Doctor degree with honors.  I have spent my entire career handling cases ranging from wrongful death to business disputes. 


I represent individuals and companies and have prosecuted and defended numerous cases to conclusion via jury trial or bench trial in the areas of construction negligence, premises liability, automobile accidents, medical negligence and product liability.  I have spent my entire legal career in civil litigation and presently serve as a manager of the insurance practice at Momkus McCluskey, LLC.  I taught Civil Litigation at the College of DuPage and have lectured on behalf of continuing legal education associations on numerous ocassions on the topics of trial advocacy and civil litigation.  I have assumed positions of leadership in the legal community on the local and state bar association levels, including the Illinois State Bar Association (Chair, Civil Practice; Elected Member of the Assembly), the DuPage County Bar Association (Elected member, Board of Directors), the DuPage Association of Women Lawyers (President), and the American Inns of Court-DuPage County Chapter (President).  I am an active member of the Transportation Lawyers Association and the Council for Litigation Management.  I have presented and moderated numerous Continuing Legal Education Seminars over the years to lawyers across the State of Illinois. 


I live in the western suburbs with my family and active in my community, school and church.  I enjoy spending time with family and friends, golfing, and attending the theater.
