I grew up in Davis, California, the daughter of a criminal defense lawyer and the oldest of three children. I graduated from California State University having attended both the Sonoma State and Sacramento State campuses with a degree in Government. While in College, I worked as a legal assistant in my dad's Law Office. After college, I moved to Colorado, (my husband's home state) where I attended the University of Denver Sturm College of Law. In my third year of law school, I had the privilege of interning in the Felony Division of the Denver Public Defender's Office and was a student law clerk in the Denver County Juvenile Court. In the past, I had a diverse civil litigation practice encompassing the areas of Family Law , Landlord Tenant Disputes and Contract disputes.
After more than a decade of litigation, I decided to adjust my practice and focus on keeping clients out of court. Drawing on my experience as a litigator, I help my clients avoid seeing the inside of a courtroom through well-crafted contracts and agreements. My practice is currently limited to Estate Planning, Oil and Gas contracts, Small Business Contracts and Business Succession Planning and Real Estate contracts. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children, exploring Colorado's great outdoors, reading, gardening and cooking.
I became a lawyer because I wanted to serve people at both the individual and small business level. I was able to experience that in my prior career as a first responder and in government service. Since beginning my pursuit of a law degree, I have been blessed with exceptional legal education and experience, having served clients in wide-ranging areas of law, from civil litigation, trademark, business and construction law, to employment, veterans, and contract law.
I believe it takes more than knowledge of the law to be a good lawyer. A good lawyer is honest and forthcoming with clients and has a counseling ethos. And, to me, a good lawyer leads with empathy and a customer service mindset. Whether my client is a business or an individual, I am passionate about helping my clients understand their rights, responsibilities, risks, and possibilities.
My professional background is diverse and essential to my skill set as an attorney today. I began my career working as a community organizer, which led me to Washington D.C. to work for Polaris, a leading anti-trafficking nonprofit. I then transitioned into becoming a marketing and public relations professional within the nonprofit and business sector. My prior background has taught me how to advocate for others and the impact of storytelling, which are powerful tools to have during trial.
After my career as a marketing and public relations professional, I pursued a law degree and focused on gaining practical legal experience during law school. I worked with the Legal Aid Justice Center in Charlottesville, Virginia and the Public Defender Services in Washington, D.C. where I assisted in juvenile and criminal defense matters. I also was a Student Attorney in the Low Income Taxpayer Clinic and the Community Development Clinic during law school. I have a Bachelor's from California State University-Fresno in Nonprofit Administration and Public Policy Advocacy.
