In 2008, I joined Shepard O’Donnell as a paralegal and I have been a part of the firm ever since. Over this time, I’ve developed a wealth of knowledge and experience in litigation involving asbestos and other toxic chemicals. I have extensive experience litigating cases in the Massachusetts State and Federal trial courts, and have briefed and argued in the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. Having grown up in Tyngsboro, MA and as a current resident of Stoneham, MA, I understand the importance of being a local law firm. Individuals and their families affected by toxic chemicals and asbestos deserve financial security and justice for their injuries, and they depend on me to help. I don’t take that responsibility lightly. I’m here for my clients every step of the way, offering relief during what may be the most difficult time of their life, and helping them obtain compensation. My entire career has been, and continues to be, dedicated to helping victims of asbestos exposure and other harmful products.
