About me

As a child, my mother referred to me as "speaker of the house" because I would not stop talking! During elementary school, she taught me to speak my mind. When I was concerned that one of my favorite trees in the local park was dying, she encouraged me to write a letter to the mayor. When I had an opinion about the war in Iraq, she encouraged me to write the President. The sense of confidence she instilled, coupled with an admiration for my father's accomplishments in the law, led me to law school. There, I took an immediate interest in mock trial competitions and trial practice. A background in drama classes paid off when I made the University of Denver's trial team and successfully competed in national competitions.

Early in my legal career, I had the rare opportunity to attend hearings, defend and take depositions, argue in front of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, and participate in trial. Over the last decade, it has been my sincere pleasure to work on a variety of complex and interesting legal issues while developing a rapport with my clients.

Representing those who need a voice in the legal system is one of my greatest passions. Whether that's achieved through a contingent fee arrangement or an affordable hourly rate, I believe in equal access to justice.
