I launched my firm in January of 2017 in Woodstock, Vermont. For the twelve years before, I practiced with a small firm in downtown White River Junction, Vermont. I handled thousands of criminal cases, from traffic tickets, DUI cases and minor misdemeanors to very serious cases, like murder, arson, sexual assaults, and burglaries. For many years I also represented parties in juvenile court. My cases included juvenile delinquency, CHINS, termination of parental rights, and other juvenile matters.
I am also an adjunct professor. In 2012 I designed and began teaching a course at Vermont Law School called "Bail to Jail" about the life cycle and procedure of criminal cases. I will teach Bail to Jail again at Vermont Law School in the fall of 2018. In the spring semester I teach evidence lab, which helps law students learn how to use the rules of evidence in a courtroom setting.
In the fall of 2017 I also taught Criminal Justice Ethics at Norwich University.
I'm a contributing writer and occasional editor for SCOV Law, a blog about Vermont Supreme Court decisions and ongoing conversation about law in Vermont.
