What are your current work responsibilities? 
As an associate in our default management practice, I have broad responsibilities in my representation of large mortgage banking and loan servicing clients. Those responsibilities include preparation and filing of court pleadings, attending contested and litigated matters, and participation in alternative dispute resolution. Our practice allows me to attend hearings in small claims court, various circuit courts throughout Wisconsin, as well as both Federal District Courts within the state. I routinely manage cases ranging in topic from eviction and foreclosure to bankruptcy and mediation.

What are the most rewarding aspects of your job?
I take great pride in being able to make frequent court appearances in various types of cases. While other firms may not allow such broad access to the courtroom for a young associate, I am thrilled to be responsible for numerous litigated matters on a regular basis. I enjoy providing thorough representation in a multi-faceted and often legally complex industry.

Were there certain experiences at MSU Law that helped you prepare for or obtain your current position?
While I feel I received an all-around excellent education at MSU Law, I believe I received considerable value in my participation in the Housing Law Clinic. The experience in representing real clients, managing cases, and attending court provided opportunities to learn in ways a classroom never could. The real-world experience gave me insight into client representation and case litigation that put me ahead of my peers when applying for attorney positions.

What would you consider to be the strengths of the Law College? 
During my time as a student at MSU Law, I was routinely impressed by the passion my professors displayed for the subject matter they taught. Every professor made it a priority to be available for one-on-one discussions outside of class. Their commitment to every student on a personal level helped me greatly when I had a question or needed further clarification of lecture material. Having such ease of access to experts in their field undoubtedly helped me with my academic success.
