Carolyn’s practice centers on medical malpractice, personal injury, product liability, and general litigation. She understands that clients turn to the firm in the wake of tragedy seeking justice and a chance to begin rebuilding. Her practice is dedicated to appreciating her clients’ needs to help them not only resolve their legal concerns, but advocate for a solution that fits their lives holistically so they can confidently begin recovery.
Carolyn has never shied away from facing big issues; when she sees an injustice, she makes a point to work towards a solution. Prior to law school, Carolyn’s interests in research and behavioral health lead her to a position researching the effect of stress on cardiovascular disease and breast cancer at the Hillman Cancer Center in the hopes that through continued research, we could find a way to solve some of society’s most devastating diseases.
She continued to develop her research skills in furtherance of justice during law school by fighting for equal treatment for women across the world. She worked as a research associate at the Avon Global Center for Women & Justice advocating for women’s rights globally through an initiative to increase transparency and comparative jurisprudence. She brings her strong research skills and determination to fight for a better future to every client, carefully addressing their unique needs to advocate for a solution thoughtfully tailored to them.
