I’m an associate at the BrownWinick law firm.  I help with litigation matters—when you get sued, when you want to sue someone else, or when you’re thinking about threatening a lawsuit.  I’m here to help you navigate the process, assess the strength of your claims, strategically plan your moves, negotiate with opposing counsel, and advocate for you in court.

My Approach

Litigation is usually not the most financially efficient method of resolving an issue. That’s why I’m always looking for strategic ways to be as efficient as possible and creative solutions to your problems.  The first step to resolving an issue is to know you, my client, and your business, because as much as law is supposed to be objective and unemotional, who you are and what your story is makes a difference.  But my work doesn’t stop there.  I strive to be responsive to your needs and show you that I’m in this with you every step of the way.  And you’re not just hiring me.  You’re hiring BrownWinick, which means you have the resources, experience, and judgment of a 70-attorney law firm to back you up.

More about Me

I graduated summa cum laude from Luther College in 2014 with a B.A. in English and Political Science.  While at Luther, I was Editor-in-Chief of the college newspaper and became a member of the Phi Beta Kappa academic honor society.

I earned my J.D. from the University of Colorado Law School in 2018 and am a member of the Order of the Coif.  While in law school, I was active in the Colorado Technology Law Journal, worked as a teaching and research assistant, and served as a judicial extern for the Colorado Supreme Court.  During my third year of law school, I completed two visiting semesters at the University of Iowa College of Law.  I was admitted to the Iowa bar in 2018 and started my practice at a law firm in Cedar Falls, Iowa.  I am currently a member of the Polk County Bar Association, Iowa State Bar Association, and Polk County Women Attorneys.
