I am passionate about my career and family and have never been the kind of person to take no for an answer. Ever since I was a little kid, my dad always used to say â€œsheâ€™s going to make a great lawyerâ€ because I liked to argue constantly and MAYBE meant yes and NO meant I will try to negotiate in about 10 minutes and that should be a yes. I am an only child and therefore didnâ€™t take NO as an answer ever. This is good for my clients because you know I will not go down without a fight because I donâ€™t like the judge or DA telling me that word. When Iâ€™m not in court fighting hard for you, you can find me either with my two dogs, playing volleyball with my husband, or curled up on my hammock reading a good book. You might also find me in the kitchen cooking up some new creation!
