I began my career as a criminal defense attorney. For 13 years, I defended people accused of felony and misdemeanor crimes, trying hundreds of cases and arguing before the court of appeals.
I then worked for 10 years in insurance companies and law firms, defending persons and companies in personal injury lawsuits. I represented clients in numerous arbitrations, mediations and negotiations, and had a stellar success rate at trial.
After gaining this experience, I wanted to return to a practice where I represented individuals seeking justice. For the past four years, I have focused my practice on representing injured individuals. The types of cases I have handled include motor vehicle accidents, assaults, skiing and bicycle accidents, slip and falls, wrongful death and civil rights violations.
I bring my knowledge of insurance company practices, my extensive trial and advocacy experience and my passion for justice to each case.
When I am not working, I enjoy hiking, biking and skiing and walking my dog. I have traveled to many countries and worked in a refugee camp.
