After more than four decades in the legal industry, almost nothing gets past Judy.

Judy began working at law firms in the late 1970s and has served as a trial paralegal with a focus in asbestos litigation since 2006. For much of that time, she oversaw monitoring and e-filing for a massive national docket, handled trial preparation, and provided trial support, often on-site. While Judy has assisted with cases across the country, she is particularly experienced with Illinois’s Cook County, a notoriously difficult jurisdiction for defendants.

Known as a team player who loves working with people and who thrives on the fast pace of litigation, Judy loves working in a role that keeps her busy.
