I grew up in Sherwood, Arkansas and attended Catholic High School in Little Rock. After high school I attended the University of Central Arkansas to get my bachelor’s degree in Public Administration, where I also double minored in Communication and Philosophy. During my undergraduate studies I worked for both the Lt. Governor of Arkansas Tim Griffin, as well as the Attorney General of Arkansas, Leslie Rutledge. Through these opportunities I was able to interact with both state and local legislators as well as law enforcement officials all across the state. I saw firsthand how laws were made and implemented to affect everyday Arkansans.
I attended the University of Arkansas William H. Bowen School of Law in Little Rock and graduated wit/h honors. While in law school I worked for major law firms in Little Rock and gained experience in many fields of law. I was admitted to practice law in Arkansas in 2020.
I began my legal career as a highly determined family law attorney with Legal Aid of Arkansas, in which I handled complex family law cases including heated divorces, child custody cases, guardianships, and orders of protection. With my passion for criminal defense, I transitioned to practicing solely criminal defense for the Benton County Public Defender’s Office. Every day I utilize my extensive knowledge and experience working hundreds of criminal cases to shift the seemingly unbalanced criminal justice system, which many times favors the prosecution, into one that levels the playing field and ensures my clients the best possible outcome. I keep my clients up to date on each step in their case and thoroughly explain each option to make sure my clients know exactly what is going on with their case and what the next steps are. Each case is different and having an experienced and knowledgeable attorney that can apply the law to the specific facts of your case makes the difference between a good and a great result. Let me put my knowledge and experience to work for you.
