As a prosecutor Mary's goal was simple; to deliver justice for each participant in the case. Mary advocated for victims and relentlessly pursued fair outcomes and transparency for the accused. When a resolution could not be obtained, Mary welcomed the opportunity to present the case to a jury and obtained numerous successful verdicts as jurors responded to her honest, respectful, and straightforward presentation of the evidence. While maintaining hundreds of cases, Mary litigated cases involving Driving While Intoxicated, Assault, Reckless Driving, Drug Possession, Endangering the Welfare of a Minor, Trespass, and countless other offenses.
After serving as a prosecutor Mary entered private practice and began advocating for individuals accused of crimes. In addition to invaluable courtroom experience, a comprehensive criminal justice background gives Mary the essential tools and training to fight for her clients. The diverse city of Chicago, Illinois, often in the national spotlight for Criminal Justice issues, is where Mary earned a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice, graduating Magna Cum Laude. This background includes working with federal and state law enforcement agencies, as well as prison administrators grappling with capital punishment reform in the state of Illinois.
In private practice Mary has expanded her work to include civil litigation and has handled personal injury matters, federal civil rights cases, contract disputes, and real estate. Mary has developed a passion for representing small businesses involved in litigation. Strong relationships are the cornerstone of any business and by working with Mary directly on your case, you can be confident when the case reaches court your business will have a prepared advocate ready to proceed.
Mary was born, raised, and currently resides in Nassau County, New York. In addition to living in Chicago, Illinois and Queens, New York while pursuing her education, Mary also spent a semester studying in Barcelona, Spain.
