Prior to joining Turke & Steil, I spent five years at a medium-sized firm in South Central Wisconsin practicing plaintiff’s personal injury law. In my practice, I focused on assisting injured parties with their injury claims, whether they were able to be resolved with or without litigation. I gained experience with direct settlement negotiations, mediations, and the litigation process up to and including trial. 

My clients felt comfortable trusting me with their cases because I am responsive, approachable, and make it my priority to help my clients understand the process and thoroughly explain my recommendations. I believe a solid attorney-client relationship is built on trust, which I make it my business to earn and maintain throughout the entirety of the relationship.
