I often get asked why the name Sassy Litigations, well with a last name like Larry, Larry Law just wasn’t going to work.
Actually, the name came because I wanted to create something that made people comfortable, made them smile, and made them not think of a lawyer, because let’s face it, no one wants to be thinking about lawyers. I realized that times had changed, people and their needs have changed, so a law firm should also change. I wanted to find a way to meet the legal needs of people in the world today.
Sassy is about being bold, different, confident, and stylish. That is want I wanted to bring to this firm. A style like no other, offering services in ways that others are not, and helping those who need it.
No one likes to deal with lawyers, lawyers don’t even like to deal with lawyers. Good thing Sassy Litigations doesn’t have “lawyers” it only has one lawyer.
My goal is to help people take care of their legal needs. That's it!
I completed my undergraduate work at the University of Wyoming and I am a graduate of a HBCU; Thurgood Marshall School of Law at Texas Southern University. I was a Texas Certified Mediator before I was a licensed attorney. In addition to my degrees, I have several Micro-credentials in the areas of data privacy, blockchain, and cybersecurity. I have spoken and presented at dozens of conferences and CLEs, you can see a list here.
I believe in giving back to the community and because of that I have volunteered with several organizations. For 10 years I was a regular volunteer with the King County Bar Association’s Housing Justice Project, and I am also the former President of the Washington State Bar Foundation and a former board member of the nonprofit Limbs For U, which is dedicated to finding ways to improve the lives of those living with limb loss or limb deformities.
Throughout my career I worked to serve people and communities. Through law school I received awards for pro bono work. I interned for Lone Star Legal Aid, in Houston and Beaumont, Texas. I continued to serve communities by interning for the Delaware Department of Justice as an Assistant Attorney General. I worked as the legal advocate for survivors of domestic violence at the Domestic Abuse Women’s Network (DAWN). I have been named to the Washington State Supreme Court's Pro Bono Publico Honor Roll every year since 2012. I was also named as one the 40 Under 40 in 2018 by South Sound Business Magazine.
In addition to running Sassy Litigations, I am also the Staff Attorney for the Moderate Means Program (MMP) at the University of Washington as well as a part time Lecturer; teaching family, housing, and consumer law through the MMP Practicum.
I simply believe that everyone deserves to get the legal help they need at a price that is not only reasonable but affordable.
