I graduated from Wake Forest University School of Law in 2016. At Wake Forest, I participated in the Community Law & Business Clinic and Litigation Externship. I also competed on the Jessup International Law Moot Court Team and was elected Chief Justice of the Wake Forest Moot Court Board. After graduating from Wake Forest, I was an attorney at a boutique litigation law firm in Charlotte, North Carolina where I focused on employment law, contract disputes, and estate litigation.

I first realized I wanted to be an attorney in college. At Cornell, a significant portion of my major focused on the long history of organized labor’s struggle for worker rights. I decided to become an attorney so I could participate in this ongoing fight throughout my career.

I enjoy practicing Social Security Disability law because my work achieves tangible results for clients in need. My clients have severe impairments which prevent them from working for more than a year. The Social Security Administration often rejects their initial application for benefits. However, my work on Social Security Disability appeals frequently results in full payment of past benefits owed and secures the future payment of ongoing monthly benefits for our most vulnerable clients.

I view each client relationship as a special bond. I am grateful for every client who entrusts me to represent them in a legal proceeding. In turn, I work diligently to provide my clients with the best legal representation possible.

I believe communication is essential to the attorney-client relationship. If I were a client, I would look for an attorney who takes time to answer all of my questions and help me understand the important parts of my case. This is why I always encourage my clients to ask me questions and timely provide them with the answers they need.

My favorite part about MDASR is the incredible teamwork which occurs on a daily basis throughout the office. MDASR has many employees and each serves a vital role in providing our clients the best legal representation possible. Every day I am amazed at how everyone works together to solve any issues that arise with any of our clients.

Outside of the office I enjoy running, cycling, and spearfishing. I am currently training for my first marathon. I also enjoy watching sports and am an enthusiastic fan of the New York Rangers, Miami Dolphins, and AFC Wimbledon.
