I concentrate my practice in the area of family law with extensive experience involving finances, child custody, and domestic violence. These areas are often complex and can be very emotional for the parties involved.
For 2012 through 2015, I was recognized by his peers and named a "Rising Star" attorney by Illinois Super Lawyers magazine, a designation limited to less than 2.5% of lawyers under 40 years of age in the state of Illinois.
I am a board member of the Illinois State Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division (2008 – current). Within the Young Lawyers Division, I serve on the Children’s Assistance Fund Grant Subcommittee, which seeks to provide grants to organizations across the state related to children and law.
I am currently an adjunct professor at John Marshall Law School where I co-teach a course titled "Family Law Advocacy," which teaches students to effectively and compassionately assist survivors of domestic violence in a divorce or paternity action. Through this course, I have partnered with Between Friends to offer legal assistance to victims of domestic violence.
I am one of the founding members of the Associate Board of the Legal Aid Society (2010 – 2014), which operates as the legal arm of Metropolitan Family Services. I previously served as the chair of the Pro-bono Committee. With the assistance of another board member, I implemented a Family Law Mentoring Panel to assist pro-bono attorneys when volunteering their time. I also teach the Simple Divorce Training to pro-bono attorneys with the Legal Aid Society of Metropolitan Family Services.
In 2011, I volunteered at the Cook County Domestic Violence Court Project to assist victims of domestic violence in obtaining orders of protection.
