I had a cousin who worked in international adoptions and I decided to go to law school so that I could do that as well. Even though I did not end up doing adoption law after law school, I maintained a strong desire to make a difference, to help my clients and do my best for them. Some attorneys lose that kind of altruistic motivation to cynicism and greed, but it hasn’t been lost to me.
I work my cases until I have obtained every last bit of value that I can for my clients. I listen and seek to understand the devastation and difficulties that my clients have experienced because of their injuries. My tenacity and resolve pays off as I have been able to generate significant settlements that cumulate into millions of dollars in the last few years alone.
I have a broad range of legal experience including drafting many successful appellate briefs, litigating issues involving breach of contract, construction law, and even family law. But the last many years working solely in personal injury law have been by far the most rewarding. I truly enjoy helping people who have been victimized by the negligent or bad acts of others to be compensated for their losses, their pain and suffering.
I grew up the third girl in a family of seven daughters. My dad was a dentist and a wannabe farmer, and so we lived on a small farm with numerous acres of land to play on. I grew up riding motorcycles and Arabian horses. I played point guard on our high school basketball team and was an avid soccer player. But my true passions were water skiing in the summer and snow skiing in the winter.
I have three children who have grown up too fast, and a husband who supports me in everything I do. I love to hike, read, and spend time with friends and family. I spend a lot of time each month looking out for and helping people in my community and neighborhood. Recently, I have taken up oil painting (I am a true beginner), and I have really loved it.
My future aspirations include dreams to travel Europe with my husband, write a book, become better at oil painting and art, and to own a boat. Of these, the most important by far is the boat.
