“I believe that in addition to knowledge and experience, empathy is a necessary trait for an attorney to possess.  It’s important to be able to see and to understand all perspectives involved.  I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the attorneys and staff at Beier Howlett and I look forward to serving the municipalities to the best of my ability.”
