Any other interesting/fun fact:
I was born and raised in Berlin, Germany and moved to California ten years ago. Most cannot tell by my lack of an accent, but German is actually my first language.
Throughout my educational career, I have always enjoyed delving into convoluted issues or areas of the law which were new to me and difficult to master. I learned that I thrive most when I am faced with challenging concepts and can apply myself to mastering every aspect of a given topic. My willingness and desire to gain a deep understanding of various intricate subjects has manifested itself as diligence, attention to detail and the overall motivation to work hard. This work ethic reflects in every case I work on and any problem I am tasked with solving for our clients.
I began working for Berding & Weil during my second year of law school. I was lucky enough to be able to work on both construction defect cases and in the capacity as general counsel right from the start. While it was a field I was unfamiliar with at the time, I quickly became intrigued by the complex nature of construction defect litigation. The variety of legal issues I was analyzing on a daily basis for my general counsel work constantly kept me on my toes and allowed me to peruse various avenues of the law. I most enjoyed that every case was different and not a single day was repetitive.
The unique nature of my position serving on both the litigation and general counsel team allows me to work very closely with our Associations managers and Boards of Directors. I very much enjoy the personal nature of the relationships I have built with our clients. The best days are those on which I spend a long time researching a complicated topic for a client and am able to call the manager or Board and present a solution. There is nothing quite as satisfying as solving a difficult problem for a client and being rewarded with the feeling that I have helped ease someones mind even in the slightest with a proposed answer or solution.
The team of attorneys, paralegals, assistants and staff at Berding & Weil across the Walnut Creek, San Diego and Costa Mesa office is incredible. I have learned more in my first few months of being an attorney with the guidance provided by the impressive team of individuals that make up our firm than I could have ever imagined. I enjoy that our firm places great emphasis on creating a cohesive environment with teamwork and kindness at its core. If I am ever faced with a difficult task that I cannot solve, I know I can pick up the phone and choose from a long list of experienced, intelligent legal professionals on my team for guidance in the right direction.
When I am not working, I enjoy going to the beach, watching soccer (Bayern Munich), exploring San Diego and having a good beer at one of this citys many breweries. I also enjoy puzzling (a new hobby I have picked up during quarantine), playing the piano and spending as much time as I can in the sun.
