About Anita

Learn Anita’s areas of practice.

What should I tell you about myself, other than that I want to hear from you and I would appreciate the opportunity to learn about your case.  

Let me just say that I have completed many complex litigation matters and I have co-founded and managed a 12 lawyer plaintiffs' law firm, as well as earned a multi-engine instrument pilot rating.  These accomplishments took a lot of hard work, persistence, dogged determination, and ability.  I bring this same level of ability, persistence, and determination to each of my clients on every case.  

In recent years I have litigated cases involving defective medical devices, defective drugs, birth injuries, medical negligence, a kidney dialysis bleed out death, a CT scan contrast reaction death, and catastrophic injuries due to trauma.  Our firm has taken on national and international companies and their Big Law defense counsel.  As managing partner, I participate in our firm's strategic evaluations and decision making regarding the wide variety of cases brought by our lawyers. 

I enjoy my work, and I enjoy piloting our twin engine airplane.  I have recently taken up ballroom dancing, a stress free and gratifying social activity.  

My husband of 34 years and I have two (2) sons, ages 32 and 27.  

Again, I want to hear from you and I would appreciate the opportunity to learn about your case.
