After graduating from Cornell Law School, I returned to my hometown in Los Angeles and started to work for large corporate law firms defending insurance companies in bad faith lawsuits. I learned the strategies and tactics used by insurance companies to deny, delay and underpay claims. But I empathized with the people on the other side of the lawsuits up against terrifying situations, often fighting for their lives while the corporations that promised to help abandoned them in their time of need.
I left to help people – to make a difference in the lives of those who most need skilled legal support.
Because I understand how insurance companies think and operate, I can frequently stay one step ahead of their legal strategy. I’m happiest when I’m fighting for justice against big companies that think they’re untouchable. When people are at the lowest points in their lives – injured, depressed, and worried about their futures – I try to make a difference. I’m there to help alleviate their fears, loneliness and pain, and to let them know that they are no longer in this fight alone.
