I pride myself on client education, compassion for my clients, and diligence in the pursuit of justice for my clients. As it should be, my clients are my first priority. Representing clients effectively requires a great deal of education, experience and passion. My tenacity in sticking with my clients until they achieve the right result is what sets me apart from others in my field. I have the respect of not only my colleagues, but of my adversaries as well.
I practice in the area of Personal Injury and Wrongful Death, assisting clients with insurance benefits, injury and loss compensation, arbitration, and litigation. I focus on Automobile Accidents, Civil Liquor Liability, Wrongful Death, and Dog Attacks.
In 1993, I graduated with Honors Cum Laude from Gustavus Adolphus College. I am also a 1998 Cum Laude Honors graduate of William Mitchell College of Law. I have focused on the areas of Personal Injury and No-Fault law since 1998.
I have been a faculty member and chair of numerous Continuing Legal Education seminars, particularly on the topics of Personal Injury and No-Fault law. I am also a qualified neutral for the American Arbitration Association.
In 2016 I was appointed by the Minnesota Supreme Court to serve on the Minnesota No-Fault Arbitration Standing Committee, where I continue to serve under this appointment.
Every year since 2015, I have been named as a Minnesota Super Lawyer (top 5% of all lawyers in the state). Prior to that, I was named six times as a Rising Star among Minnesota lawyers (top 2½% of up-and-coming lawyers in the State), as nominated by the Super Lawyers® of Minnesota.
Since 2014, I have been named annually to the Best Lawyers in America and Minnesota's Best Lawyers lists (fewer than 5% of Minnesota lawyers receive this recognition).
In 2008 I was made a Lifetime Member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum - a national organization comprised exclusively of members who have achieved Million Dollar results for their clients.
I am admitted to practice law in the State of Minnesota and the United States District Court, District of Minnesota. I am active in my local Bar Associations, and am an accomplished and recognized member of Minnesota Association for Justice (formerly the Minnesota Trial Lawyers Associations/MTLA).
I live in Arden Hills with my husband and two daughters. My personal interests revolve around my family and home. I enjoy landscaping and gardening, making pottery, home remodeling and decorating, spending time with my children, and a variety of creative arts.
