I worked as an intern at the Federal Defender's office for the Western District of Missouri. In private practice, I have assisted on a murder trial, in addition to represented clients facing serious felony criminal cases.
I'm an academically author for the Missouri Bar on the subject of discovery. I've spoken as a continuing legal education speaker to the Missouri Bar, local bar associations, and private groups.
