I grew up in southern Missouri and moved to Kansas City to attend UMKC School of Law. I quickly fell in love with the city and am proud to call it my home. After graduating law school, I was a judicial law clerk for the Honorable Janette K. Rodecap at the Jackson County, Missouri Circuit Court. As a clerk, I was able to take the legal theory I learned in law school and apply it to real cases. I spent countless hours observing court proceedings and discussing legal issues with judges and attorneys.

I enjoy helping people and working to solve problems, and practicing employment law is a way to do just that. When I ask people to tell me about themselves, they almost always tell me what they do for a living. Our work is a part of who we are and how we define ourselves. When an employment-related issue arises, it can become very personal. My goal is to help my clients by finding the right resolution for their specific cases.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
