Courtney’s passion for the law shines through in every aspect of how she represents and fights for her clients.
Courtney’s experience as a criminal intelligence analyst gives her a unique approach to litigation, helping her analyze large amounts of complex data efficiently and accurately and apply that data in creative ways. She focuses her practice on complex, tort-based litigation and has successfully briefed and argued dispositive motions in multi-million dollar antitrust cases and acted as second chair in a two-week, $20 million jury trial.
