Summary


I am an associate attorney of Hurtado Zimmerman SC, practicing in transactional and dispute resolution of construction, real property, and general business matters, with a special interest in complex commercial litigation.

I counsel and represent owners, contractors, design professionals, and subcontractors involving contract disputes, construction defects, delay claims, warranty claims, theft by contractor claims, right to cure issues, home improvement practices claims, construction collections, and lien foreclosure actions.

During law school, I worked as a Practicing Intern at the Wisconsin State Public Defender's Office in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where I gained experience as a trial lawyer and worked diligently to protect my clients' civil liberties.

I also served as an Intern to the Honorable Frederick C. Rosa, Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge, Felony Division. During by internship, I obtained experience in the process of judicial decision-making and garnered an understanding of the attributes of effective lawyering that materially advance the position of litigants before the court.

I am a member of Milwaukee, Wisconsin and American Bar Associations, the Association for Women Lawyers, National Association of Women Lawyers, the Marquette University Pro Bono Society. She is also a Committee Member of the Alverno College Council of Lifelong Learning/Teach & Learn Committee.

I also am a volunteer attorney at the Marquette Volunteer Legal Clinic. I volunteer on a monthly basis providing brief legal advice on many civil matters, including landlord-tenant, small claims, large claims, and credit-consumer issues.
