BIOGRAPHY

I am an associate in the firm’s employment and litigation groups. A recent graduate of Marquette University Law School, my focus has been on civil litigation, personal injury, and housing and community law. I have represented clients in civil litigation with a focus on housing and eviction defense, and assisted community members in estate planning. As a research assistant, I worked with Professor Kali Murray of Marquette University on relevant case law in cases regarding the effects of coal plants on communities of color and drafted analyses on procedural and substantive issues, as well as an executive summary and memoranda with my findings. I have experience analyzing medical records, conducting research in connection with personal injury claims, drafting demand letters, reviewing discovery, and aiding in trial preparation. Additionally, as an intern, I was responsible for researching case law, statutes, and sentencing guidelines.
