Those who know me well say that I’m:

  • An effective communicator – one of the biggest things a client needs from their attorney is proper communication. This could include translating legal jargon into digestible language, letting the client know what the proper expectations should be, or explaining where clients are in the process of completing their legal needs. I care about making sure that communication is a priority for both the lawyer and the client.
  • Dependable – The bonds created by the attorney-client relationship are built on trust. That trust requires the attorney to be a dependable figure who can assist the client throughout their relationship. I pride myself on being that dependable figure.
  • Strong-willed – there are times where perseverance, time, and patience is the best remedy. While uncomfortable for many clients, it is my job to stay resolute and maintain the best course of action to achieve the client’s goals.

I chose to become an attorney because the world and people need help. How people choose to help those two important things is up to them. My choice was to help people with the tangled and confusing web that is the law. I appreciate being able to assist a client who finds an idea to be foreign and then leave the conversation feeling better about the situation and themselves.

I believe open and honest communication can alleviate many issues in life.

I can learn and adapt. Nothing about law or clients is ever stagnant. Life is always evolving. So no matter what I can always learn and adapt to each client’s situation to make sure the best possible outcome is available for clients.

My greatest accomplishment is being married and starting a family.

I’m making a difference by educating my clients about estate planning and estate administration and giving my opinion as an attorney as to how best help each individual client’s situation.

Quote me… “Luck is the intersection of preparation and opportunity.”

My next challenge is my ongoing current challenge: bettering myself for my clients.

On my bookshelf is Maybe You Should Talk to Someone by Lori Gottlieb.

Seven words that describe me are thoughtful, listener, empathetic, personable, well-rounded, honest, patient.

One thing most people don’t know about me I did a study abroad in Scotland and interned with the Scottish Parliament.

When I’m not working, I’m walking my dogs, doing the outside chores around the house, checking out a local brewery/distillery, or up North at the cabin.
