While in law school, I clerked at two law firms that practiced commercial litigation, real estate, collections, and minority-ownership oppression lawsuits. There, I learned valuable legal experience by filing legal documents in Court, the Cook County Assessor’s Office, and Cook County Recorder of Deeds.
I am a certified mediator for the Center of Conflict Resolution in Chicago. As a legal intern for the Mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution Legal Clinic, I was able to mediate real parties’ disputes in small claims court. Meditating disputes, taught me to identify opposing parties’ needs and interests in a short amount of time, demonstrating my ability to work in a fast-paced work environment and work under pressure while focusing on steering the hostile parties into negotiation and ultimately an agreement.
Prior to law school, I gained valuable employment and business management experience at my family’s car dealership. While working for my family business, I saw first hand how the Illinois property tax system can be unfair and unjust to property owners. An unfair and inequitable property tax bill can hurt small businesses. This led me to develop a strong interest in property tax appeals, real estate, and business law.
