  • Areas of Practice

    • Litigation

I am a litigation associate who has experience in dealing with some of the toughest times for businesses and everyday people. Coping with the impact of being named a defendant in a lawsuit, or debating whether to file suit yourself, is one of the most emotionally and financially challenging experiences anyone or any business can go through. I pride myself on being able to navigate through these emotions, explain intricate legal issues in simple terms, and be honest about my assessment about a case in order to best budget my client’s valuable time and money. I have experience working through municipal, state, and federal courts, including the court of appeals. I deal with a wide array of civil matters such as minor and complex breaches of contract, property disputes, personal injury, as well as personal and professional negligence issues, just to name a few.


Simply put, I became a lawyer because I enjoy helping people. At Buckingham, Doolittle and Burroughs, we work with our clients as the people they are, with everyday emotions and concerns. Just as importantly, we view the businesses we represent through the lens of the people who help those businesses succeed. It will always be our priority to provide the best personal representation, ensuring that our clients know their priorities are our priorities and that their problems are in the best hands.
