I have over 25 years of experience as a Trial Attorney. I have represented plaintiffs and defendants in business, real estate, and environmental law disputes. I enjoy the process of taking cases to trial and have won several verdicts in multi-million dollar cases throughout the United States. I have spoken at national conferences about water contamination issues - topics like the admissibility of computer modeling in federal court (really), endocrine disrupters in the water supply and emerging arsenic standards. I love the water. I swam in school and currently compete in US Masters Swimming meets. I was formerly the Senior Litigation Attorney at a law firm specializing in environmental law and toxic torts; prior to that, I was a Principal (shareholder) of a 15-20 member law firm. I am a mentor through the Stanford Alumni Association. I have been, and am, a mentor to many students, including undergraduates, law students, and recent law graduates, and I enjoy helping others enhance their writing and legal analysis skills.
