Biography

I grew up throughout the Southeastern United States. I attended college at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina and I graduated with a B.A. in political science and philosophy. I moved to Minnesota in 1999 to attend the University of Minnesota law school and I decided stay after I graduated. Following graduation, I clerked for a Hennepin County Judge and then took a job with the Stearns County Public Defender's Office. I have been in private practice since 2016.

My practice involves representing people charged with crimes as well as individuals dealing with issues surrounding Orders for Protection and Harassment Restraining Orders - both petitioners and respondents. I am here to help with the collateral consequences as well including, but not limited to, driver's license revocations, motor vehicle forfeiture, employment concerns and more. Please contact me and I am available for a free consultation regarding whatever legal issues you might be facing.

Legal Answers
Q. My friend is being charged with controlled substance charge. On her paperwork from her arrest there is an F.B.I. number
A: What kind of document are you looking at? A police report? A complaint? Something else? More would need to be known in order to intelligently answer your question. Reach out to attorneys directly. Most of us provide free consultations.
Q. How can I have a court date for probation violation scheduled after my one year probation has expired?
A: Under Minn. Stat. 609.14, a probation revocation may be filed up to six months after expiration of probation so long as the probation violation occurred while the individual was still on probation.
Q. MN Statute 169.18(8)(a) - I need an affordable lawyer who can help me on this traffic citation please.
A: The effect that this might have on your insurance rates depends on your prior driving record and your insurance company. There is no mechanism for tickets automatically coming off of your driving record absent some type of agreement with the prosecutor. I don’t necessarily expect it to affect a background check in a major way. A private attorney will undoubtedly cost you more than $128. You’ll have to decide if it’s worth it to spent the additional money to potentially keep it off of your record.
