I have always been intrigued by learning and the pursuit of knowledge. My professional and academic interests led me from my undergraduate and graduate studies to the practice of environmental litigation and, finally, to teaching. My current position allows me the opportunity to help others understand how our system of government and laws works and also affords me the opportunity to explore complex questions of law, public policy and legal practice. It is my hope that I am able to share some of my insights gained through my education, legal practice and academic research and also help others understand what role they can play in our system of government, whether it be through the practice of law, public administration or other form of civic service
Professional Experience:I am licensed to practice in the state and federal courts of Kansas and Missouri and have served as counsel or co-counsel in litigation and regulatory matters in 16 jurisdictions ranging from New Jersey to California and Florida to Wisconsin. During my years of practice I focused on environmental litigation and regulation including cases involving CERCLA, the Clean Water Act, The Clean Air Act, toxic torts, asbestos exposure and many other areas. In addition, I have experience as pro-bono counsel in criminal and civil matters ranging from juvenile criminal cases to divorce and child custody issues.Research and Published Work:
