My whole legal career (beginning while still in law school) has been focused on protecting personal injury victims. While in law school, I clerked for an attorney who had practiced in the area of personal injury for over 30 years, and I worked with him right after becoming licensed, as well. While working there, I discovered that although I had started off wanting to practice Criminal Law, my true passion was in helping people who had been injured and helping them get the compensation they deserve.

Before beginning law school and while clerking with the personal injury law firm, I personally witnessed how family members of mine were taken advantage of or ignored because they did not know what to do after a crash or how to navigate the claims process, and they did not have anyone to guide them in the right direction. I want to make sure that no one gets taken advantage of or ignored by any insurance company. I fight for fairness, to make sure client’s voices are heard, and I fight for my clients just as I would have wanted someone to fight for my family members. At the end of the day, I want my clients to know that I am here for them and will be here to represent them until their case is resolved and they get the compensation they deserve.

Practicing in the Circuit Courts of Cook County, Kane County, DuPage County, Lake County and Will County, I have successfully argued against motions to change venues and motions for summary judgement. I have also tried various personal injury cases with most settling during trial and have been most successful pre-suit during settlement negations.
