How long have you worked in the legal industry?
Since 1992. Things have definitely changed along the way, such as technology but I still know how to manually shepherdize a case.
What motivated you to have a career in the legal field?
I would have to say Alan Dershowitz. After watching “Reversal of Fortune” and seeing how he utilized his law school students into breaking down the Von Bulow case, I was hooked. I knew that’s what I wanted to do – be a member of the team. I have since read his books “The Best Defense” and “Chutzpah” and that confirmed my decision.
What excites you about the legal industry?
I love how technology has leveled the playing field for small firms. With innovations such as cloud-based solutions and Colorado’s e-filing system, it allows all law firms to compete in the market place.
How do you work with your husband?
I get this question pretty often. It boils down to this, we do not try to do each other’s jobs. I do not practice law and he does not run the office. It works pretty well for us.
