About Us

I am an experienced trial attorney who provides aggressive, effective, and efficient advocacy. The firm represents individuals facing criminal investigation, charges, and indictments who want thorough, creative and personalized advocacy to zealously protect their interests and rights. I also offer expertise in business litigation and employment law for small business owners and individuals who want customized and cost-effective solutions for their legal needs.


My approach is based on a collaborative and client-first philosophy. I will fight tirelessly and passionately to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients – through investigation, legal research, pre-trial motions and trial preparation. I appreciate that clients have unique needs and priorities and I will work closely with you to fully understand your individual needs and advance your priorities. I will take the time to fully explain the legal process and possible outcomes to you and your loved ones, so that you can make informed choices and know what to expect every step of the way.

I represent clients in civil and criminal matters in Massachusetts courts. I have successfully defended clients in a wide variety of criminal matters. My civil practice focuses on employment litigation. I have achieved favorable results for my clients in matters involving employment discrimination, wrongful termination, retaliation, and violations of wage and hour laws. My clients are individuals and small business owners who want to initiate litigation or who need a lawyer to defend them.

I gained courtroom experience as a staff attorney with the Committee for Public Counsel Services, the Commonwealth’s public defender agency. I then expanded my legal expertise to civil litigation by working for three well-respected Boston boutique law firms.

I am a graduate of New England School of Law and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. She is a board member of the Massachusetts Appleseed Center for Law and Justice.
