I was born and raised in Grand Forks, North Dakota. My upbringing taught me the value of hard work, moral integrity and close relationships. My friends and family would tell you that I’m a people person. I have always found a great deal of happiness in helping others. I value the people in my life – family, friends, and clients, and go the extra mile to maintain those relationships. They would also tell you I come from a long line of great storytellers, a skill that has served my clients well in my trial work. And I bring an uncompromising sense of morals and ethics to everything I do.
My first job out of law school was working in-house at a major insurance company. I spent four years learning how insurance companies work, and litigating cases on behalf of insurance companies and defendants in personal injury cases. There I found my passion for trial work. Being in the courtroom was thrilling, but I felt unfulfilled working for the defense. My clients were generally faceless insurance companies or an individual who simply needed to participate because their insurance company required them to.
Ten years ago, I decided to make a change and start representing individuals instead of the insurance company. Over the years I have had the opportunity to help hundreds of families in times of crisis and uncertainty. I care about my clients and I work hard to help make things right. The skills that I learned working for an insurance company have helped my clients from the outset of their case all the way through trial. Keeping my clients informed and making sure their rights are protected every step of the way is my goal in every one of my cases, no matter the size or complexity.
