Summary

I am a partner and trial attorney with the Allen law firm, and concentrate my practice on personal injury, brain injury cases and wrongful death claims. I work out of the firm's Richmond office and also serve clients in Short Pump, Midlothian, Mechanicsville and across the commonwealth of Virginia. I am a tireless, compassionate advocate for my clients. Since joining the firm in 1990, I have obtained numerous victories in the courtroom. My compassion extends beyond the courtroom as I work closely with my clients to resolve their cases. Although I am proud of my courtroom results, I am most passionate about the people whom I represent. I'm a people person, and I enjoy the individual relationships I develop with my clients. I draw inspiration from the courage of my clients to overcome adversity and to recover from injury that was caused by the fault of another. I have successfully resolved through trial and settlement many cases involving children. As the mother of four children myself, I am able to draw upon my own experiences to compassionately work with children. I have lectured on the topic of "Children as Witnesses" and have participated in producing a video which has been used to train lawyers and judges on the special circumstances involved when children are in the courtroom. I aggressively take on insurance companies to preserve the rights of my clients. I once fought a case all the way to the Virginia Supreme Court to obtain justice for a 12-year-old client whose insurance company wrongfully denied payments for his medical bills.
