Biography

As an attorney, I've enjoyed the opportunity to represent a variety of people trying to get through a very stressful moment in their lives. Noone wants to be brought to court, and being able to be the experienced and professional person to help them through the process is an honor and a joy. I believe in working to the greatest extent possible through collaboration and in disagreeing without being disagreeable, and I think the profession is best served when people take common-sense positions and don't fight every step of the way.

After serving as the Lead Counsel for a major insurance staff counsel office, I've been blessed to transition to lead the general liability team for GLB Attorneys PC. I've enjoyed working with lawyers throughout the region on matters where we represented different sides to reach the right result. My work includes wrongful death, traumatic physical injury, premises liability, professional liability, products liability, dram shop and a variety of other case types. In every case, I work in a diligent manner to push cases to an appropriate resolution while making sure my clients know they're being well taken care of.

I also serve as a court-appointed and attorney-selected arbitrator in some matters.
