I earned my law degree in 2013 and have been representing people with mesothelioma and traumatic injuries ever since. My clients wind up feeling like family.
My first legal job was representing victims of medical negligence. I loved working on behalf of people who were harmed due to malpractice, and making the move to representing mesothelioma victims was a natural next step.
When I began my legal career representing mesothelioma victims, my very first client was a 25-year-old woman who had been diagnosed with asbestos cancer. At the time, my younger sister was the same age as this woman. Over the course of her treatment, while she and I were working together, this 25-year-old woman lost the ability to ever carry her own children as a result of her disease. This one case forever changed both my career and me as a person.
Ever since this first case of a woman, just my sister’s age, I have represented numerous victims and families, all of whom have had their lives cut short and changed by this horrible disease. These families are the source of motivation to do what I do every day, both in life and in the courtroom.
