Attorney at Law
With a background in theatre and dance, I started as a legal assistant with the firm in 1995 with no consideration of becoming a lawyer. It was just a transitional job out of college. I viewed the law as a tool for the elite instead of an engine for individual and social change. The firm and its clients challenged me to reconsider. First, watching Jeff and Gary engage with clients, carefully preparing their cases, getting insight into their lives, and gaining their trust. Second, clients who took that counsel to transform their lives. I came to realize that lawyers are crucial and necessary to guide and counsel a person through the most difficult time of their life.
Born in Texas and later raised in Atlanta, New York City has been my home for over thirty years. I came to New York first as a young performer at a downtown theatre and was entranced with the liveliness of the City. As a drama student at NYU, I focused on working collaboratively within an ensemble, to create new works and tell new stories. As a lawyer, I aim to give the people the voice to tell their stories.
When your rights are in jeopardy, I'll be there to advocate for you.
