Small but scrappy. This description could be describing me or the small businesses and startups I represent. I’m a Denver based lawyer/mediator creating quality, accessible, and comprehensive legal solutions to help my clients reach their peak. I cut my teeth on employment law when I left law school. My career has grown in law firms and in-house. I’ve represented hundreds of small businesses, the most populous county in the United States, and an up and coming media company. I have mediated cases in some of the busiest courthouses in the U.S. In my career, I have found I’m happiest when I’m helping startups and small businesses find solutions that are right for them. I’ve always been an entrepreneur at heart and after reading one too many books and listening to one too many podcasts I find myself in the same boat as my clients – building a business to take it to its full potential.
I’ve always dreamed big. That’s how I ended up at NYU with an undergraduate degree in Communications. During my time in New York, I interned for the first blind judge appointed to the federal bench. Before law school, I spent a year working for an entertainment law firm in Beverly Hills. Even when I was in law school, I managed to find the time to intern with the TV litigation department at NBC Universal and complete a full time federal judicial externship in the United States District Court for the Central District of California. After graduating with honors from Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles, I spent the first few years gaining extensive experience litigating employment disputes ranging from wage and hour class actions to cases involving sexual harassment, disability, discrimination, and wrongful termination claims. In addition, I worked on employment based immigration visas.
In 2012, I earned my mediation certificate and found joy helping clients settle cases outside the Courtroom. I love mediation because it is less expensive, more efficient, and often more effective than the court system. I hold an active bar license in Colorado and California.
I live in beautiful Denver, Colorado with my husband and our fun-loving dog. When I have the time, I enjoy hiking, skiing, and working on my book.

I worked in a writing lab while I was in college, tutoring students to form strong arguments and avoid plagiarism. The transition from teaching my classmates to develop and safeguard their written work to advocating for the businesses of entrepreneurs, small businesses, start ups, and creatives was easy. Just like drafting a paper, building a brand requires a framework for growth. I relish in providing my clients the transactional due diligence, intellectual property development and enforcement, and, when necessary, litigation support necessary for their businesses to thrive.
