I have more than 13 years of experience defending against premises, product, auto and professional liability claims, workers’ compensation issues and employment-related disputes. I started my career with the Illinois Attorney General where I independently negotiated over 150 State Workers’ compensation cases and successfully argued for the State’s first ever “Stop Work Order” in connection with an employer’s lack of insurance.
A versatile and resourceful litigator, I develop relationships with human resource departments, in-house counsel, opposing counsel and investigators to successfully resolve the most complex and intricate legal problems. I have negotiated global settlements to resolve employment-related issues, including the Release and Resignation of employment and OSHA complaints. I have also supervised and managed litigation for a Fortune 250® insurance company.
My experience includes the development and implementation of effective litigation strategies, overseeing and supervising defense teams and managing staff attorneys. In previous positions, I have been responsible for the integration of litigation management software to more effectively manage systemwide litigation. I have also spearheaded the deployment of updates to company policies to include Document Retention, Claim Reporting and Unanticipated Outcomes.
