What was your route to the top? My interest in the legal profession came while working at Travelers Insurance Co., among a team of elite attorneys in complex litigation. I attended law school in the evening, while working full time at Travelers. This experience truly sharpened my time-management skills that all attorneys know is critical. After obtaining my law license in CT & NY, I worked in private practice with a focus on general defense litigation. Exposure to a wide variety of cases early on in my career helped me tune into the areas of practice that I enjoyed the most. I later practiced with a boutique firm, focused exclusively on representing policyholders in insurance coverage litigation. Working for policyholders provided me with valuable insight into the practical business operations of many of my clients. In 2013, I was presented with the opportunity to serve as the first in-house attorney at Starion Energy. In my role as General Counsel, I have worked closely with various business groups within the company and have found it extremely rewarding to focus my attention on a single client. You are able to advise your client with knowledge of their overall business strategies and goals in mind, which vital to giving your client not only sound legal advice, but advice that is practical and beneficial to their needs.
