Biography

I grew up throughout the Southeastern United States. I attended college at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina and I graduated with a B.A. in political science and philosophy. I moved to Minnesota in 1999 to attend the University of Minnesota law school and I decided stay after I graduated. Following graduation, I clerked for a Hennepin County Judge and then took a job with the Stearns County Public Defender's Office. I have been in private practice since 2016.

My practice involves representing people charged with crimes as well as individuals dealing with issues surrounding Orders for Protection and Harassment Restraining Orders - both petitioners and respondents. I am here to help with the collateral consequences as well including, but not limited to, driver's license revocations, motor vehicle forfeiture, employment concerns and more. Please contact me and I am available for a free consultation regarding whatever legal issues you might be facing.

Legal Answers
634 Questions Answered
Q. Can I grow marijuana while on parole
A: You need to follow your conditions of supervised release. If supervised release requires sobriety, you need to remain sober. If you have a prescription for medical marijuana, then you need to get your pot from a dispensary. I'm not sure why she is requiring you to do MRT, but you are likely in a spot where there is a consequence if you do not do the MRT. Generally having a positive relationship with your supervised release agent is going to make your life much easier.
Q. Can I carry a gun while picking up my daughter?
A: Get a permit. You cannot legally transfer a loaded gun without a permit. You certainly could be charged with carrying in public without a permit and there is no guarantee that anyone is going to simply accept a claim that you acted in self-defense.
Q. Is it legal to run a red light when the cross street is completely blocked off due to construction?
A: Yes, you need to stop and wait for light to change. The fact that the cross street is blocked off doesn't change the semaphore to a stop sign. Pedestrians and folks on bikes need to be able cross and ignoring the light doesn't give them a chance to do that.
