Biggest Accomplishment:

My 4 children are my greatest accomplishment, and I feel so blessed everyday as I watch them navigate life.  As for my legal career, while at Kaye Scholer (currently Arnold & Porter), I drafted the brief which resulted in the dismissal of over 500 cases against my client and drafted the appeal (the decision was upheld). This was a significant win as more than half of the cases against my client were dismissed.
