My experience at the “nation’s law firm,” the United States Department of Justice, shaped my view of the law. The exceptional integrity, talent, and dedication of my colleagues taught me how to fiercely advocate for my client, the United States, while upholding the Department’s mandate “to pursue justice.”

 

I started my career as a trial attorney with the United States Department of Justice in Washington, D.C. I was hired through the Attorney General’s Honor Program, considered to be the nation’s premier entry-level federal attorney recruitment program. On my first day at DOJ, I was handed a case file and told, “go to work.” The on-the-job training experience taught me to think quickly, be resourceful, and to develop the confidence necessary to handle the unexpected.

I have litigated various types of tort actions including a consolidated medical malpractice action in the U.S. District Court, Middle District of Alabama, earning a commendation from the Air Force for my handling of the matter. My practice focuses primarily on healthcare and business litigation. I am passionate and committed to providing the best representation possible to each client.
