When I was young, I wanted to be the President of the United States of America. Therefore, I knew I needed to become a politician which meant become an attorney first. I have always loved the law, rules, and reading case law. I enjoyed school, which means being an attorney is the perfect profession because we are never-ending students.
As an attorney, I believe it is vital to be up to date on case law in order to provide the best defense for my clients. I value my relationships with my clients. I want to provide them the best defense possible. I do not see my clients as clients, but as personal relationships that require regular communication and collaboration regarding our ongoing defense. I am available to my clients whenever they need, because I want them to know I value their relationship and I understand when there is an urgent issue for them.
As a young attorney I started my workers’ compensation career with a solo practitioner who I have kept a great relationship with throughout the years. I am a Certified Specialist in workers’ compensation and now have over 20 years of experience. Where has the time gone? I have practiced in medical malpractice defense, toxic torts, and premises liability during my career. However, I have always returned to workers’ compensation defense which I know is where I belong. I also defend related matters concerning Labor Code §132a and Serious and Willful allegations.
I have worked at various large, well-known firms and in 2021 chose to finish my career by joining Kegel, Tobin, & Truce because I know their attorneys care about their clients and the firm cares about their attorneys. I want to be with a firm that has a personal relationship with their attorneys, the way I do with my clients.
