My clients are whole people.
My representation doesn’t stop with the case itself – I also help my clients with collateral consequences of both civil and criminal matters, ranging from consequences at school, housing issues, professional licensing, and with ongoing issues in civil cases. I take particular pride in approaching each case in a creative and unique way.
There is no one size fits all. My background in civil litigation gives me a unique perspective in criminal cases: I do not slide into the rut of “take the plea offer or go to trial.” I craft creative solutions for each individual case. The same is true in civil cases. I do not adhere to standard approaches to settlement, and instead work to create a resolution that fits my clients’ needs.
I am passionate about the law.
More specifically, I am passionate about advocating for my clients, and helping them achieve the best outcome in their case. Because my background includes both civil and criminal litigation, I have the ability to combine the high-level research-driven strategies employed in civil cases with the quick thinking courtroom work developed through representing clients in criminal matters. The result is a better approach to both civil and criminal litigation.
During my time in law school, I was an associate editor on the University of Colorado Law Review. In that capacity, I wrote extensive research-based articles for publication, and also edited the work of professional authors and law professors who were chosen to publish in the University of Colorado Law Review. I had the pleasure of working with the best and brightest law students and to work on cutting-edge legal issues and analysis.
I also represented people charged with crimes through the CU criminal defense clinic. This blend of research-based writing and analysis and hands-on practice at the trial court level has defined my practice throughout my career as a lawyer.
