I first became interested in insurance litigation while attending law school at Depaul College of Law in Chicago, Illinois. During law school, I clerked for CNA Insurance Company’s workers’ compensation division. At CNA I had the opportunity to work with wonderful people and was exposed to the inner workings of the insurance industry. However, I also came to understand the vast resources insurers have at their disposal to shift risk back to their policyholders. With this realization I discovered my passion: helping the underdog insured take on the goliath insurance industry. The experience I gained working on“theother side” has been invaluable in shaping my practice to what it is today.
I graduated from The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor with a B.A. in Political Science. As an undergraduate I spent a summer clerking for then Circuit Court Judge Stuart R. Berger in my hometown of Baltimore, Maryland. My experience with Judge Berger, who now sits on Maryland’s Court of Special Appeals, taught me how to apply the law to the facts of a given case, to write persuasively, and to think about a case from both sides.
