Biography

I focus my practice in the areas of Criminal Law, Estate Law, and Family Law. I was born in Peoria, Illinois in 1970, and was raised in Galesburg, Illinois. I graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Lawrence University in 1992. I earned my Juris Doctorate degree, graduating Magna Cum Laude, from Northern Illinois University in 1998, where I was a member of the Northern Illinois University Moot Court Team and editor of the Northern Illinois Law Review. I am admitted to Colorado and Illinois State Bars and a member of the Colorado and Illinois State Bar Associations, the American Bar Association, and Juvenile Justice Council. I served as an Assistant State's Attorney from 2000 - 2007. Since that time, I have been a Criminal Defense Attorney and sole practitioner. I am certified as a Guardian Ad Litem, a Child Advocate, and Court Mediator. I am committed to providing the highest quality of services to my clients. I have handled thousands of DUI cases and have extensive experience in Probate, Trusts, and Family Law matters.

I believe in giving each client the personal attention they deserve.  Each case is important to me, there are no "small cases."  I do not screen my calls.  I personally speak with you.  My goal is to be the best possible advocate for my clients.  In doing so, I help my clients understand their rights and responsibilities so they are in the best position to make sound decisions for themselves and their family.

I reside in Evergreen with my husband and four children.  In my free time I enjoy hiking and biking.
