About me

About Me

Since 2003, I have helped hundreds of law school applicants pursue their dreams. Before founding Top Law Coach and writing the Law Admissions Lowdown blog for U.S. News & World Report, I was an admissions consultant and LSAT tutor for JDMission, Powerscore, and EssayEdge. After graduating Yale and Harvard Law, I worked as a writer and legal scholar focused on promoting justice and fighting corruption at institutions like the World Bank, Columbia Law School, and Princeton University. I have taught at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and practiced global finance law at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe in New York. I have researched human rights and policy reforms in more than 20 countries worldwide, from Cambodia to Kosovo to Nigeria. My writing has earned a Fulbright Fellowship and appeared in the New Yorker, the Harvard ReviewPolicy and Society, and ForeignPolicy.com


Strengthening the voices of my admissions clients sustains my own advocacy work and reminds me that a law degree is a hard-earned honor. I feel grateful for each client I have cheered across the finish line to become my legal peer. More than ever, the rule of law depends on a new generation of lawyers.

Just as I help applicants find their voice, I help victims of human rights abuses at institutions like the Solomon Islands Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
