Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire

Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
I prevailed in a Motion for Summary Judgement on appeal in a case stemming from alleged nursing and physician negligence. Standard of care for emergency room care under California Statute must be provided by an ER physician. Plaintiffs failed to include a declaration from an ER physician. Before starting my own solo practice I practiced law as an associate with top AV rated Plaintiff and Defense Counsels in their respective group practice. Prior to my career in law, I was employed as a Labor and Delivery RN, Nurse Manager in a variety of geographic settings over a 27 year period. My education and experience in hospitals gives me the edge over attorneys who do not have the same background providing insight into the standards of care at issue. While the non medical background attorney relies on medical experts to screen the merits of a case, I can often determine the merits of a medical malpractice case with a review of the records. My background as a nurse gains respect and easy communication when discussing cases with my pen experts.

How did you build a successful practice?
I am always " building" my practice and professional connections via networking at professional meetings and thru the use of postings on social media.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Clients should look for a lawyer that has a proven track record and most importantly, a lawyer they feel supports their position or claim with enthusiasm and who listens to their concerns. The client should have a sense that they are being heard. Make sure to interview the attorney before agreeing to representation. Ask if the attorney has clients who are willing to share their experience with the attorney or firm.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
In a free phone consultation, I can answer general questions and determine if the case is one I would agree to take on.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
My primary area of interest and experience is with claims involving birth injury. Helping a family recover financially in cases where professional negligence has caused harm and damage to their baby is gratifying and is my passion. The courts provide a remedy for parents to pay the costs associated with the brain damaged baby.

What are your other interests in addition to law?
I enjoy my Golden Retriever, canoeing, swimming, snow skiing and cooking delicious food to accompany fine wines. I am a pro life advocate.
