Personal & Professional Passions
A self-described “problem-solver,” Tasha’s childhood was filled with countless hours spent putting puzzles together, playing Tetris on her Nintendo Game Boy, and reading choose-your-own adventure books. She liked it when details fell neatly into place and she enjoyed having the ability to change outcomes for the better.
She explains, “Becoming an attorney was a natural fit for me. I love working with my clients to help solve their legal problems. Each client and case presents a unique challenge, the opportunity to find a special solution.”
Tasha loves her team and the work that they share. Her law partner, Andy, also happens to be her husband. Of their personal and professional relationship, Tasha notes, “The skills that make our marriage successful also work well together, to make our law practice thrive. Andy and I are honest with each other. And, because we know our strengths and weaknesses, we can tailor our strategies in each case, giving our clients the best representation our team has to offer.”
When she isn’t collaborating with her team to find creative ways to solve their clients’ legal problems, Tasha enjoys spending time with her family, hiking, traveling, soaking up the outdoors, eating at local restaurants, and reading. And, of course, coffee! She feels certain none of these other things would be possible (or as enjoyable) without coffee.
