After graduating number one in my law school class, and serving as a summer clerk to former Illinois Supreme Court Chief Justice Thomas Kilbride for one year and current Illinois Supreme Court Justice Robert Carter another, I have dedicated my entire career to plaintiff class action litigation.

In furthering my passion for protecting the Davids from the Goliaths, I serve on several committees for Public Justice, which is a nonprofit legal advocacy organization who protects consumers, employees, civil rights, and the environment.

In a world full of uniquely qualified attorneys, I distinguish myself by strategically and creatively developing the best solutions for holding corporations accountable for their greed, negligence, or abuse of power, to bring justice to consumers of the United States.
