What three words best describe you?

Ambitious, hard-working, team player

Where are you from?

Hoffman Estates, IL

What was your first job?

Account representative at a collection agency in high school (go figure – I’ve been called the queen of collection as a lawyer!)

Do you have any hidden talents and/or unique hobbies?

I can craft just about anything I put my mind to – Pinterest, beware!

What is on your bucket list?

Skydive before my 40th birthday!

Why did you decide to become an attorney?

I did a famous person presentation on Sandra Day O’Connor in 5th grade and told everyone that I want to be just like her when I grow up…its helps that I love to argue!

What does a typical workday look like for you?

In a nutshell – I start off with good intentions of accomplishing normal tasks –draft letters, respond to e-mails and return phone calls, but it quickly turns into “Let me drop everything and work on your problem” – never a dull moment with our HOA clients!

Why did you choose your areas of practice?

I set my heart on being a criminal defense attorney – it took stepping up on a case at 26th & California in Cook County as a law clerk to quickly change my mind and switch to real property law – my second favorite class in law school!

What do you like most about Tressler?

The ability to pick-up the phone and ask any lawyer – whether its California or Chicago – for advice on a case – everyone is great!

What are you most proud of, professionally and/or personally?

Being able to juggle a full-time law practice (with the help of my amazing partner, associates and support staff!) while being a wife and mom to 3 kids.
