My firm was established in 2004 with my primary legal focus being criminal defense, DUIs, suspended licenses, traffic tickets, traffic accidents, misdemeanors, and expungements. For the last 14-years, I have committed myself wholeheartedly to a thorough and diligent battle on behalf of my clients in order to attain exoneration.
I was raised by a hardworking mother who worked as a CNA in a nursing home. Her patients' families would rarely visit, so she tended to their needs as a doting daughter might, which taught me compassion, above all else. My father was a doctor and immigrant who came to America to help undeserved communities needing medical care. When he came to this country, he spent his entire career working for the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union serving the needs of blue collar and immigrant employees.
I consider my practice to be an extension of the values that were practiced in my home as a child and the one I now continue with my own children. I am sensitive to the fact that one's lowest life situation should not be perceived as an opportunity seized upon by others as a money making endeavor. I consider my practice to be an area where I can offer my expertise and passion in order to attain the most equitable resolution for all involved.
I graduated from Chicago-Kent College of Law in 2004 and opened my practice shortly thereafter. In 2005, I received a Distinguished Service Award from the Chicago Volunteer Legal Services for obtaining asylum on behalf of an Eritrean refugee. My current practice extends through Cook, DuPage, Will, Kane and Lake Counties.
I am an avid cyclist, swimmer, and skier. I am a Board Member serving Hinsdale Red Dogs and Hinsdale Little League. I am also a member of Old St. Pat's Catholic Church in Chicago, Illinois.
