Attorney and certified information privacy professional (CIPP/US) with demonstrated expertise in technology policy strategy, analysis and advocacy, including risk management, data privacy, and human rights. Trusted with navigating clients through the ever-changing, complex patchwork of data protection laws, regulations, rulings, and standards to minimize risk and engender consumer trust.
After graduating from Indiana University School of Law in 2008, I opened my own practice, serving the corporate needs of startup companies and small businesses.
In 2011, I began working in Mountain View helping Google develop its in-house electronic discovery department. Now, I've returned to private practice in San Francisco. Over the years, I've served as in-house counsel for dozens of companies providing large firm services at a fraction of the cost.
In addition to my solo practice, I developed the Advanced Civil Procedure: Electronic Discovery course at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, which I teach during the summer, and I'm currently currently developing an Information Privacy Law course to be offered through the school online for Fall 2014.
If you have questions about a new company or an existing business, please contact me. I help both local and out-of-state clients choose the appropriate entity type for their businesses, protect their intellectual property, and engender consumer trust, while managing risk, through the implementation of defensible data protection practices.
Outside of work, my partner and I share our home with two rescued dogs and are avid supporters of Muttville Senior Dog Rescue. Boxing, yoga, and running through Golden Gate Park fill my free time. I also serve on the board of Bay Area Lawyers for Individual Freedom and co-chair its membership committee.
