I attended Case Western Reserve University School of Law, Cleveland Ohio. Prior to working at MDASR, I practiced personal injury, malpractice, real estate, social security and litigation including civil and corporate litigation at both the trial and appellate levels.
There were only two things that I ever wanted to be when I grew up and fortunately, I’ve gotten to do both of them. I was always the one trying to change the system to make it equal for everyone. As my family says, they always knew that I’d be a lawyer—I was always advocating for someone.
Most days, you can make an immediate impact in getting for the claimant exactly what they need—be it money, treatment or both. When I did personal injury work, it often took years to bring true help or relief to people who were hurt. With compensation, you can make a real difference at every hearing to try and make the time they are out of work one where they can concentrate on getting better and know they are getting paid appropriately. Bringing that “instant” relief to people is very gratifying.
I view my role as the patient explainer trying to demystify a complicated and often frustrating system. Explaining how cases may play out, being honest without sugarcoating the situation, helps to put claimants at ease.
Someone who is patient and can provide clear information allowing the claimant to understand where things stand, where their case is heading and what can be done to get them what they need and are entitled to.
I truly enjoy and appreciate the people that I work with–both coworkers and other attorneys that I see on a regular basis. There is a true spirit of collegiality that flows throughout the office and makes it easy to know that we are all in this together putting the client first.
I go to a lot of concerts. Music informs my life and I’ve been known to travel for a good band. Good friends, family and of course my dog also take up my free time.
Angelman’s Syndrome Foundation–Dc Chapter has been a focus for the last decade since my goddaughter was diagnosed with this rare condition. Every spring will find me in DC helping to raise funds to support not only research to find a cure or additional treatment for this condition but raising funds for families whose children are affected.
