What do you enjoy most about your practice?
I most enjoy the collaborative nature of my practice, working with great clients, making the puzzle pieces fit, and creating solutions that will enhance and help meet our clients' goals.
What is the secret to obtaining successful trial results?
The key is to start preparing for trial before a controversy even begins -- whether that involves implementing policies and procedures to improve patient care or thoughtfully maneuvering through the employer-employee relationship. If best practices are in place and followed, litigation is less likely. If litigation does ensue, evidence of the best practices will go a long way to getting that successful trial result.
What are your favorite pastimes when you are not practicing law?
My favorite pastimes are traveling, reading novels, camping, enjoying dinner (preferably on a patio) and a good glass of wine with friends, and spending time with my husband, Dan, our two children, Alec and Arica, and my bonus-daughter, Maria.
