I have experience representing clients in a variety of litigation, ranging from shareholder disputes to employment issues. Prior to entering private practice, I was a law clerk at the Washington County Attorney’s Office, where I gained valuable experience performing legal research and analysis, arguing on behalf of the state at hearings, and drafting briefs, complaints and memoranda of law.
I believe that the most important characteristic that I bring to my practice is a sense of empathy. I grew up surrounded by a wide variety of people and viewpoints, and from a young age learned to find ways to relate to others and to see different perspectives. I will always be a strong advocate for my clients, but I believe finding resolutions in complicated matters can be made easier by just trying to see where the other side stands.
I have wanted to be a lawyer as long as I can remember – I fell into speech and debate in school, and felt an immediate connection, but I am just as much drawn to the problem solving aspects of my practice. I am passionate about working with businesses to resolve disputes and help their businesses move forward.
Outside of work, I enjoy playing soccer and spending time with my two dogs. I also love to travel, especially if it means spending time on a beach.
