Admitted to practice in Vermont (1992) and Massachusetts (1990), I represent injured clients and their families in federal and state courts across Vermont, and before the Vermont Supreme Court, as well as before mediators and arbitrators. A tireless advocate for my clients, I concentrate my practice in the prosecution of personal injury claims, and have extensive experience litigating automobile liability, ski area liability, products liability, and medical malpractice claims.
In 2014, I received the highest rating of AV Preeminent from Martindale-Hubbell for Ethical Standards and Legal Ability. Lawyers who receive the AV Preeminent status have been awarded the highest peer review rating in Martindale-Hubbell for professional excellence.
I live in beautiful Shelburne, Vermont with my husband and our three school age children. I can most often be found in the bleachers cheering for my kids' hockey, lacrosse and soccer teams, or at some school event.
