I was born and raised in Mt. Vernon, Illinois. Being a lifelong resident of Southern Illinois, I view our local communities as home and I care about what happens to my neighbors. My law firm, Olson & Reeves, Attorneys at Law has 2 locations, with one being in Mt. Vernon, Illinois, and one being in Centralia, Illinois. Our law firm has 3 partners, and we have all been best friends since middle school. We all three also attended the University of Illinois. I went to law school at SIUC where I received my JD. My practice centers around criminal & DUI defense, and I typically handle all the trials at our firm regarding personal injury cases.
