Pam has been practicing law for over twenty years. Her primary focus has been on vulnerable populations (Children, disabled, mentally ill, elderly), and she has advanced their causes through litigation, collaboration, and policy and law creation and implementation.
Pam has written informative opinion letters to and for insurance companies, persuasive treatises for judges, arbitrators and mediators, and legislative proposals for entities working at creating or changing law. She wants the non-legal population to know that every legal document uses facts, science and analysis to convey the uniquely personal story of the client, whoever that client may be.
Pam has been a Director, Board member, and consultant to numerous non-profit organizations. She is very clear about the distinction between the work of the Board and the work of the Staff, and has assisted many organizations get clarity on those differences. As a grant writer, she has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in support of children both happy (scouts) and sad (fosters).
Pam grew two of her own children, and has been actively involved in raising several others in her community. Through her participation in Boy and Girl Scouts, the Parent Teacher Club, academic and extra-curricular activities at school and especially her work in the Child Welfare system, Pam has engaged with hundreds of children and their families. She has learned a thing or two about how to raise a child into a successful adult.
Working with both businesses and non-profit entities, Pam has created informative articles to educate the public on issues or opportunities. She thoroughly enjoys learning and writing about new opportunities for fun or profit, and encouraging the general public to engage more fully in local social and recreational activities.
Because of the diversity of her clientele over time, Pam has had the privilege of reasearching and developing informational documents on a wide variety of topics. She truly enjoys doing research and creating materials that capture the client's specific viewpoint in a clever and engaging manner.
In most of her many activities, Pam has had the pleasure of informing the media of up-coming events or breaking news. She has also assisted many clients in crafting clear, succinct statements that accurately and enticingly convey their intended message to the target audience.
