Biography

As an eDiscovery attorney, I advise litigators and clients on all aspects of the electronic discovery process: data preservation, collection, processing, review/analysis, and production. In my role as the Litigation Support Manager for Warner Norcross, I work with our attorneys and paralegals to coordinate data ingestion, processing, analytics, review workflows, and production for all litigation matters. I supervise the Litigation Support team that performs the technical work involved in these processes, and I am responsible for procurement and administration of the litigation technology tools in use at the firm. 

Since 2008 I have supervised and coordinated all aspects of the eDiscovery process on dozens of matters, including DOJ subpoenas, multi-district/class-action litigations, second requests, and complex environmental cases. I also provide consulting and training on eDiscovery software, the use of technology-assisted review, data analytics, and optimizing efficiency and quality in review project management.
