In a circuitous career path, Molly kept finding the legal niche in every job she was given, paving the way for her current partnership with clients.

Molly started her career in healthcare technology, but what caught her attention were the ins and outs of corporate and legal structure. At a volunteer position that turned into her next full-time job, she again gravitated toward the legal component of the assignment, and knew it was time to attend law school.

Colleagues notice that Molly is energetic, organized and eager to help clients. Also a puzzle solver, she developed a daily litigation strategy and maintenance of 250 complex, multi-defendant product liability cases for a variety of defendants, including industrial contractors, premises and products. She’s drafted pleadings and motions, including motions for summary judgment, resulting in more than 90 dismissals for clients prior to trial.

After exploring other professions, Molly likes that she can apply all her skills to the many facets of legal work.
