About Sheila

Learn Sheila’s areas of practice.

As a mom of three teenagers and active triathlete, you can imagine I lead a pretty busy life.  I am blessed to have a great husband and wonderful family that supports all I do, and they are always there to help out. 

 

For those of you who know me, you know Ironman has changed my life!  Training for triathlons took me from ex-college-athlete to fit mom.  More importantly, through Ironman I have had the privilege of working with some of the best volunteers in Louisville!  Every aid station on the mile race is covered by folks from a local non-profit, church or charity who are volunterering their time in the sun and heat not just to raise money for their causes, but to help people who are struggling to achieve their lifetime dream!  These groups cheer us on, give us water when we are dehydrated, food when we are seeing double, and emotional support every step of the way.  I have been honored to be a volunteer and help raise money through The Ironman Foundation for my church, Our Lady of Lourdes, and thrilled to be a competitor who has been supported by my family and fellow parishioners.  This year I am competing not just to finish, but to give back to my community.    This year I don't compete for Sheila -- I Tri for Louisville, the City I Love!

Awesome personal injury attorney
I have known Sheila for several yrs and she has a very caring compassionate heart for the injured people. Others in my family have used her and i have referred her to everyone I know. She has been in the business for a long time and she is a barracuda in the court room. I have witnessed this first hand. Best hands down in my opinion

excellent!!
I was injured a little less than a year ago, and reached settlement rather quickly. Sheila was very helpful and compassionate throughout the whole process. I would recommend her to anyone.

Couldn't get any better
I have been Sheila's client since circa 2012. She is not only a fabulous attorney, but she really cares about my situation. We are still working together and haven't completed our mission, but she's already won 2 victory's out of 3 thus far. When the third approaches, I expect her to kick butt as always.
