I was admitted to the Illinois Bar in 1987. Between 1987 and 1989, I clerked for the Honorable Ann C. Williams, who was then a federal district court judge for the Northern District of Illinois and who now sits on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. After my clerkship, I was hired by the firm of Miner, Barnhill & Galland. I became a partner in the firm in 1995 and I have served as the firm’s co-managing partner. Over my career, I have litigated a variety of civil cases involving employment discrimination, civil rights, the representation of whistleblowers in cases under the federal False Claims Act, medical malpractice and health care, and general commercial disputes. I was appointed to serve as a federal court-appointed monitor of a consent decree in a race discrimination class action case in February 2008. I have also served as an Administrative Hearing Officer for the City of Chicago’s Commission on Human Relations from 1995 through the present.
