As an award-winning moot court competitor and former judicial clerk, Alyssa knows what it takes to win over juries and judges alike, and she uses such knowledge for the success of her clients.

From the moment a client steps in the door until closing argument, she homes in on her client’s needs and champions her clients’ causes with persistent determination and compelling advocacy.

Alyssa’s day-to-day practice focuses heavily on critical legal research and persuasive trial and appellate court brief-writing in matters ranging from commercial litigation to products liability.  She has spent significant time researching various legal issues including establishing personal jurisdiction over out-of-state defendants, extension of sovereign immunity to private government contractors, interpretation of oil and gas leases, and breach-of-contract damages.  Her attention to detail and work ethic make her a valuable member of any trial team.
