Fearless and focused, Courtney’s talent for transforming complex and complicated litigation into clear and compelling narratives has made her the trusted choice for high-stakes cases.


Courtney’s experience as an intelligence analyst gives her a unique approach to litigation, allowing her to analyze seemingly unwinnable cases and find solutions for clients. She is called upon when clients are involved in particularly complex, high-stakes matters and need somebody who can dig in to efficiently craft an effective and persuasive defense.

She has successfully helped her clients navigate numerous multi-million dollar threatened and litigated class action litigation as well as numerous investigations (both internal and government-led).

Courtney also channels this experience into her e-Discovery (including electronically stored information or ESI) practice, balancing her client’s goals of accuracy and efficiency. From large-scale document reviews to targeted collections, Courtney leverages her knowledge of e-Discovery tools such as Technology Assisted Review (TAR) to develop collection and review strategies that best fit her client’s needs.
