Published in 2017 Indiana Super Lawyers — March 2017

I can’t go a day without … my phone (if I’m being honest).

If you were in my office, you’d … likely trip over a pile of files. I know what’s in every stack, but there are a lot of stacks.

My colleagues would be surprised to know that … I love to sing and I’m fascinated by World War II history.

When I was a newbie lawyer I … talked too much. I didn’t realize my clients already believed I possessed legal expertise; I didn’t need to prove it.

If I weren’t a lawyer, I’d be … an interior designer.

The quality I most like in a lawyer is … a tie between compassion and responsiveness.

The SCOTUS justice I’d like to meet is … Elena Kagan. I met William Rehnquist and Ruth Bader Ginsburg when I was in law school.

The SCOTUS decision I’d overturn is … Citizens United. Terrible, terrible decision, as the recent election exemplified.

My favorite Twitter feed is … @UberFacts. I always learn something new.

I can’t believe more people haven’t read … Nickel and Dimed by Barbara Ehrenreich. 

My fictional hero is … Atticus Finch.

My real life hero is … my mom. She’s been an amazing role model as a professional, a manager and a mom.

My most bizarre talent is … I can’t believe I’m putting this in writing, but burping. I have three sons and I can outdo them all.

The talent I wish I had is … telekinesis. Moving things with my mind would be awesome!

The most fascinating person I ever met is … a tie between Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Pat McAfee, for very different reasons!

On my best day I … get all of my work completed, respond to every client phone call and email, and watch IU win a basketball game.

My motto is … “Put on your big-girl panties and deal with it.”

The craziest thing I witnessed in a courtroom is … the father of a child pull a gun on an accused child molester. 

My earliest memory is … trying to return my brother at his six-week checkup. I was 2 ½. 

The movie line I quote most often is … “You’re killing me, Smalls.” — The Sandlot

My guilty pleasure is … romance novels. I love to get lost in reading fluff when I’m stressed out.

My courtroom walk-up song would be … “Lose Yourself” by Eminem.
