I have been a criminal defense attorney since graduating from the Marquette University Law School in May of 2009. I began my practice in Appleton, where I took both private and public defender criminal cases and represented my clients from pre-charging to jury trial and post-conviction stages. I have successfully resolved cases through smart motion-filing practice, diligent investigation, plea negotiations, and, jury trial contests.
In 2012, I moved to Racine, Wisconsin and joined Attorney Richards to continue my criminal defense practice. I continue to provide great results through strong motion practice, litigation, and persuasive arguments in the courtroom. Additionally, I take pride in benefiting my clients beyond simply fighting in the courtroom. I work to provide them with an understanding of the process, a fair assessment of their options, and the ability to pursue their goals in resolving a case. Criminal cases threaten one's employment, ability to provide and care for family, and even personal property. I keep these things in mind when representing my clients and pursuing their goals.
Outside of my practice of law, I enjoy spending time at my cottage in the Northwoods, where I fish, hunt, and enjoy time with family and friends nearly year-round. Here in Racine, I am probably outside running or in the gym, taking in a movie, or enjoying a meal out with friends and family. I love collecting vinyl records and love a good concert. Above all else, my daughter means the world to me.
