I have spent my entire career litigating tough cases. Upon graduation from law school, I worked as a trial attorney for the Committee For Public Counsel Services (Massachusetts’ Public Defender Agency), in Boston. After leaving Boston, I returned to my native Chicago and joined the City of Chicago Law Department where I worked in a litigation division that represented the City of Chicago and police department employees in complex and high profile litigation in state and federal court.
At age 31, I became one of the youngest attorneys promoted to Senior Counsel in the City’s Law Department history. I was responsible for supervising junior attorneys in all aspects of litigation and trial as well as trying high exposure multi-million dollar cases. My experience includes litigating wrongful death, wrongful conviction, malicious prosecution, excessive force, shootings and other civil rights and police misconduct violations. I have experience trying cases in both state and federal court.
I attended Howard University where I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelors of Arts in Political Science. I received my law degree from Southern University Law Center where I was an editor on the Journal of Race Gender & Poverty and a Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Fellow.
Throughout my career, I have learned that effective advocacy makes the difference in the outcome of the case. Contact me today so that we can discuss how I can help you.
