CHOOSING TO BE A LAWYER

I have always been a curious person. I like to narrow in on a question, get to the root of a problem, and ask the right questions to discover what I need to best understand a situation.

I chose to go to law school to apply my natural curiosity to helping others. The legal system can be a little scary and difficult to understand. The more experience I acquire the more I am able to help others achieve their legal goals using my own skills.

MY TIME AT MURDOCK LAW

My time as a law clerk has exposed me to the practice of law in ways the classroom never could. The experience gained while working side-by-side with practicing attorneys is invaluable. I have had the opportunity to assist on many cases and enjoy the variety of work I have encountered so far. No two days are ever the same!

ABOUT ME

After growing up in a suburb of Milwaukee, I attended UW-Madison for undergrad and returned home to Milwaukee to attend law school at Marquette. In my free time, I enjoy playing the piano, reading for fun, catching up on TV, and spending time with my extended family. Milwaukee has always been my home and I look forward to practicing law in the city.
