To say I was introduced to the field of law at an early age would be an understatement. Both of my parents, half of my aunts and uncles, and one of my great-grandfathers were all lawyers. In fact, my great-grandfather even went on to become a law professor. I spent my entire childhood watching my family members help those in need, and there was little doubt in my mind that I would follow in their footsteps one day.
In college, I studied American history at Georgetown University. After graduation, I moved to Denver and completed an AmeriCorps program, where I had the opportunity to work for several nonprofit organizations, including the National Sports Center for the Disabled, Habitat for Humanity, and the American Red Cross. I later graduated from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law in 2008. While in law school, I worked for the Environmental Protection Agency and the University of Denver Environmental Law Clinic. Following graduation, I was an insurance defense litigator for six years before joining Downs, McDonough & Cowan, LLC in February 2015.
As a former insurance defense lawyer, I have unique insight into how to effectively negotiate personal injury settlements.
