Nancy shared the practice with her father LeRoy for over 30 years. Together they built a firm based on essential values that continue to this day. Nancy’s accomplishments are recognized by both her clients and her peers. She received the San Francisco Trial Lawyers Association Lifetime Achievement Award in April 2010, an honor that had never before been awarded to a woman trial lawyer. This award reflects Nancy’s career and accomplishments in helping those injured and those who otherwise would have no voice.
Throughout her career Nancy has been a passionate advocate, using the law to address women’s healthcare issues and other areas of social justice. As one of the first woman personal injury lawyers she combines tenacity, determination, and empathy for her clients. These attributes are essential as she has tackled a series of groundbreaking cases including DES Litigation, the first breast implant case to establish the connection between silicone and physical injuries, and the first Diet Drug (Fen-Phen) case filed and settled.
