After several years developing my skills as an attorney, I discovered a passion for ensuring that policyholders are represented fairly by their insurance companies and that valid claims are reasonably investigated and timely paid. I joined Cannon Law in December 2021 as an experienced litigator with an established history of resolving disputes for my clients at all stages of litigation, from pre-trial settlement negotiations through successful jury verdicts and higher-level appeals.
My practice focuses on representing homeowners and commercial property owners in claims against their insurance companies, along with personal injury cases. I wrote the briefing that was responsible for creating Colorado Supreme Court precedent establishing limitations on the evidence insurance companies can use to defend against allegations of bad faith claims handling and unreasonable delays or denials in the payment of covered insurance benefits.
I received Honors degrees in Psychology and French from Hamilton College, and I was an associate editor for the University of Colorado Law Review. These experiences bring an additional level of empathy when relating to the circumstances my clients have experienced and how to effectively and persuasively communicate their position to others. Between college and law school, I worked with a small plaintiff’s litigation firm in Connecticut, specializing in personal injury cases, and I represented indigent clients as a student attorney with Colorado Law’s criminal defense clinic. I am committed to helping people in need of support.
After law school, I clerked for the Honorable James S. Casebolt and the Honorable David J. Richman of the Colorado Court of Appeals , then practiced for three years with a well-respected commercial litigation firm in Denver.
I am a Board Member and co-chair of the Insurance Bad Faith Committee of the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association, and a participant of the Women Trial Lawyers Network.
I am a former downhill ski racer and continue to explore the Colorado mountains. I enjoy spending time with my dog, Bella, and listening to and participating in live music performances.
