I followed my father's footsteps into the law. As both a Lutheran pastor and a state public defender, he taught my sisters and I first-hand the importance of being a person folks can rely on during some of the hardest times of their lives.
When folks are facing the loss of their freedom, their job, or their family, it can be the scariest time of their lives. They need a zealous attorney who will stand up for their rights and their dignity, whatever their background. That is the type of Attorney my father taught me to be.
I am an experienced trial attorney and have a long history of successfully exposing illegal police searches and seizures. I know how to hold the State to its burden at every stage of a criminal, right through appeals if necessary.
Prior to arriving at Marquette Law School, I attended the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point and spent two semesters working as a Parliamentery Special Assistant in the palace of Westminster.
The youngest of four, I was the only one of my siblings born and raised exclusively in Wisconsin, mostly in a small town of Clintonville just West of Green Bay. I grew up fishing and hunting, and still enjoy those things when I can can get time to do them. However, I mostly stay in Southeastern Wisconsin now.
Beyond fighting felony cases in state and federal court, filing appeals, and representing parents in custody disputes, I try to spend time traveling with my husband at least a couple times per year. We also try to see as many Brewers games at Miller Park as time allows.
Mostly, my time is spent helping my clients. If you have any questions about how I can assist you or someone you care about in dealing with an issue anywhere in the state, please give me a call or stop by my firm's Waukesha office, conveniently located across from the County Courthouse.
We're here to help, when it matters most.
