About me

“I have always worked as a Plaintiff’s trial lawyer. I love what I do and cannot imagine doing any other type of work. It gives me great pride to know that each day I help an individual or a family through a difficult time when an unexpected injury has caused such loss and devastation in their lives. Much of what we do is fight insurance companies for benefits and compensation to which our clients are entitled.”


She serves on the Board of Directors of Public Justice, a national public interest law firm. “I am grateful for the opportunity to serve on the board of an organization that act’s solely in the public’s interest, fighting against discrimination, environmental pollution, and increasing access to the courts for all individuals.”
