I was drawn to the field of law during my own parents' divorce. I witnessed firsthand the callous and uncaring nature of some very expensive attorneys. I attended the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where I worked at various university jobs and was an active member of Chi Omega Sorority, acting first as House Manager and then as President. Majoring in Economics, I obtained my Bachelor of Arts and decided to travel the world before pursuing a graduate degree. I lived in Australia for a year, working my way around the eastern half of the country and falling in loved with Darwin, Northern Territory. I then made my way home through Asia and Europe.
I then began law school at the University of Detroit. I attended full-time throughout as well as worked two jobs and managed to graduate in the top 5% of my class.
M first 7 years of practice were with a private firm that focused on insurance defense, representing major insurance companies (State Farm, Allstate, Farm Bureau). The world of tort reform had me managing a heavy caseload, while trying cases one after another throughout Metro Detroit. It was invaluable experience.
Following the birth of her first child, she took a sabbatical and later joined forces with fellow attorney Keith Kecskes where she has focused her practice on general civil litigation and all aspects of family law.
At some point, most people find themselves dealing with the court system: from minor criminal offenses (including traffic), to general civil litigation (contract and business disputes and litigation), to matters involving family law. The fact is any involvement with the court system can be overwhelming. With more than 20 years of litigation experience, you can count on me to navigate the system for you with insight and guidance that will allow you to focus on your life outside of the court room.
