After law school, my first experience in the legal community was on the defense side. I worked for an insurance defense firm handling mass tort cases, asbestos cases and medical related cases, latex glove litigation, fen-phen litigation, and that prepared me to transition to representing people who have been injured due to those things. For two years, I worked trying to save insurance companies money when their clients did something wrong and morally and ethically that was not something I felt like I could do any longer. So the experience with the medical products, with the medical issues and the mass tort litigation was a perfect transition for me to switch to this side, to represent the people who have been injured by those things.
