My career began as a Ralph J. Bunche Fellow for Amnesty International which brought me from Miami to Chicago. In Illinois I became involved in the International Human Rights/Civil Rights cases which lead write a manual to encourage the use of International documents in local courts. After joining specialty law firms in Employment discrimination, Section 1983, business, I became a Federal Panel Attorney litigating full time. Subsequently I opened TEIL Firms After 12 years of practice and enjoy the growth of employees and successful clients who consult with me on a variety of national and international business transactions involving structuring, contracts, compliance, and Intellectual Property. I absolutely love what I do and enjoy the practice of law.
Besides my career, I am a wife, mother, dog owner/animal lover, Christian, avid runner and health enthusiast, writer, professor, and traveler. In 2014, I started a non-profit organization for the wrongly incarcerated and use it as a way to give back to the community. In my practice, inside bar associations and other organizations, I am blessed to work on behalf of and with some of the most amazing people in the world!
