My practice focuses on criminal defense and personal injury law. I spent 6 years as a prosecutor for the Madison County State's Attorney's office and bring that courtroom-intensive experience to my new practice. I am blessed to have a capable and brilliant law partner in Michael Swanson, and I greatly enjoy the new challenges and rewards of the practice of law as a small firm.

If you are involved in a car accident, you may benefit from the services of a car accident lawyer, one who knows the dynamics of car crashes and can identify and weigh all the possible factors which may have played a part. For example, you are driving in the rain on an improperly graded road and an approaching car has a blow-out. It suddenly veers out of control and skids into you at 45 mph. Was it the rain, the poorly built road, the other driver (found with beer cans in the car), or the mechanic who installed the bad tire that caused the accident–or a combination of them all? A car accident lawyer discovers who is responsible, whether insurance policies will pay for your losses, and what you can expect to recover in damages if the accident was someone else's fault.
