That is one of the best compliments I have ever received. People are important to me and so I have chosen to dedicate my professional life to fighting for their rights against those who would harm them. For over a decade, I have successfully represented injured persons and the families of the victims of wrongful death. I have sought and received justice for my clients by securing millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts from the companies who wronged them. I handle cases arising out of sexual abuse and physical abuse arising out of the negligence of youth-serving organizations; medical negligence, defective products, and automobile, bicycle and trucking collisions.

As an advocate of victims' rights, I am proud to be acknowledged as a Top 100 Trial Attorney in Illinois 2012-2015 (National Association of Trial Lawyers' "NATL"); Top 40 under 40 (NATL) 2012-2015; Illinois' Rising Star 2013-2015 by SuperLawyers Magazine; Top Women Lawyer in Illinois by SuperLawyers and Chicago Magazine which is a peer review publication that selects the top 2.5% of attorneys in the state based on industry excellence and peer recognition; and 10 Best Under 40 2014 & 2015 by the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys. In addition to these professional acknowledgments, my clients' positive reviews have earned me the designation of "Superb Lawyer" on the AVOO, an attorney-referral website. In fact, most of my clients come to me through another client's referral but I am proud to have my work acknowledged including when CBS Chicago said: "

I am regularly honored with requests by local and national media, bar associations and professional organizations to speak about my work as a victims advocate. Additionally, I am a regular contributor to legal publications.
