She served as a case liaison between the prosecutor’s office and local, state and county law enforcement agencies as well as defense attorneys.

In addition to the criminal law and case preparation experience that Brittany gained through working at a county prosecutor’s office, she also brings ample courtroom experience. Her prior role as a Drug Court Case Manager in Hillsborough County afforded her the opportunity to regularly attend court hearings and interact with court personnel, treatment providers, law enforcement and others involved in Drug Court proceedings. Her responsibilities included performing intake assessments, regular interaction with Drug Court clients, and case management of over 30 client matters. Brittany also worked as a Mental Health Rehabilitation Technician providing support to individuals in crisis or experiencing substance abuse withdrawals.

This robust work experience and educational background assists Brittany greatly while serving clients with the highest degree of expertise. She understands that clients are often struggling through difficult times when they reach out to the firm for assistance and guidance. Brittany is an active listener, compassionate individual, detail-oriented professional and a thorough paralegal. These traits enable her to effectively communicate not only with clients but also with other individuals that are involved in the litigation process.

When she is not working, Brittany enjoys cooking and spending time with her family and friends. She also enjoys a variety of outdoor activities, including kayaking, fishing, gardening, sitting by an outside fire, and going for motorcycle rides with her fiancé, Cole. Brittany, Cole and their cat reside in the greater Concord area.
