Biographical Information:

Building on fifteen years of professional experience as an attorney, I provide German-into-English translation services in the fields of law, business, and finance. ATA certified from German into English, I have been working with both translation agencies and direct clients since 2003.

Focusing on business and intellectual property matters, I practised law from 1991 until transitioning to translation full-time in the mid-2000's. Among other things, I spent ten years with various large law firms in Philadelphia and was subsequently a partner with a small law firm in Media, PA.

I received my J.D. law degree in 1991 from Duke University School of Law in North Carolina and am admitted to practice in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. I also hold a Masters of Arts degree in History and North American Studies from the Freie Universität in Berlin, Germany.

I am a member of the American Translators Association. I have also served on the Board of Directors of the German American Chamber of Commerce, Inc.-Philadelphia, of which I am still a member, and I also hold memberships in various other legal and business organizations.
