About me

I graduated Cum Laude from the University of Missouri - Kansas City in 2005. I received my J.D. from the University of Missouri - Kansas City School of Law in 2008, where I graduated in the top third of my class and earned an emphasis in Litigation. 

I was a member of the Student Bar Association and Delta Theta Phi during law school. I participated as a judge in undergraduate Mock Trial competition, and I volunteered as a big sister with Big Brothers Big Sisters.

I became a personal injury attorney because I have a passion for assisting injury victims stand up for their rights and preventing them from being taken advantage of by big insurance companies.

I began my career as a law clerk in 2006 with the Roswold Law Group. After graduating from law school and passing the Missouri Bar, I accepted a full time associate position with the firm.


 


In April 2012, I joined Castle Law Firm where I continue to represent the rights of those individuals who have been injured due to someone else's negligence.


 


In August 2015, I moved to the great state of Texas and joined the Law Offices of Houston M. Smith. I continue to hone my experience as a pesonal injury attorney to help those who have been injured because of another's negligence.
