I believe in putting the personal in personal injury

I have dedicated my practice to helping those who have suffered life changing injuries because I have seen, through a close family member’s struggles, the devastating effects of such injuries. I have witnessed the physical and emotional toll it takes on the injured person and their families. My job is to help put families back together after these  tragic events.

My passion for helping others is fueled by the injustices that injured victims and their families face. I believe in a results based practice that is built upon advocating for human values, fairness, and justice.

I am  a strong advocate for others.  I am proud of the work I have done  and continue to do to help others through reasoned and definitive outcomes.  I am proud of the support I have provided to countless families facing some of their most difficult periods.

Outside of the office, I am a mom, wife, dog mom, and wellness enthusiast.  I have created a mental health podcast for lawyers and believe deeply in giving back to the community in which I live and the professional community.  In my pursuits I am an advocate for women and children and believe firmly in advocating for their rights both inside and outside of a litigation context.
