People who find themselves caught up in the legal world after suffering an injury oftentimes feel as though they’re swimming with sharks.
As personal injury lawyers, it’s our responsibility to treat their cases like our own and help guide them through these cases safely.
Though we can't go back in time and prevent an injury before it happens, personal injury law allows us to be in a unique position to help people fight big corporations and win.
And I’m proud to use my position to achieve justice for my clients.
Strong Ties to the Community
I am a first-generation American. As a child, watching my parents’ journey to citizenship inspired me to choose a career path where I could use the privileges I've been given to help people like my parents.
Naturally, I was first drawn to immigration law.
After graduating from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, I went on to the Mitchell Hamline School of Law and secured a legal clerkship at a private immigration law firm early on.
However, it didn’t take me long to discover that this was a very administrative type of law, resulting in many immigration lawyers and their clients feeling powerless against the long list of requirements, rules, and administrative strongholds.
As I continued my legal education, I realized that personal injury law was the most concrete way to make a change in someone’s life. Personal injury attorneys have the power to argue on our client’s behalf and ultimately change their life for the better.
At the end of each case, our goal is to provide our clients with the opportunity to heal not only physically, but also emotionally, moving forward without the stress of medical bills and lost wages weighing on them.
With parents from working-class backgrounds, I spent much of my legal education feeling as though I was on the outside looking in.
Nevertheless, I was able to graduate college at 20 and law school at 23. The process of obtaining my education was the single most galvanizing experience of my life, in terms of what it did for my confidence, independence, and determination toward my goals.
In truth, this experience has also allowed me to connect better with our clients, who often come to us with their first encounter in the legal world. I consider it my privilege to be their guide on their quest for justice.
I am honored to use my knowledge and experience to help not only my community, but injured people from all walks of life to beat a system that would sooner let them suffer rather than succeed.
Outside of lawyering, I am a full-time Dog Mom to my four-year-old pug Romeo, and recently became a fiancée to my college sweetheart. My hobbies include gardening, boating, rewatching The Golden Girls, and wedding planning.
