Carrie’s practice focuses on construction, employment, litigation and premises liability in MGC’s Florence office, bringing over a decade of insurance defense experience to the firm. Prior to joining MGC, she practiced insurance and governmental defense litigation at a local firm, with a focus on premises liability, employment discrimination, civil rights/governmental tort liability and automobile accidents.

In Carrie’s representation of individuals, businesses and governmental agencies via insurance carriers, she believes communication and compassion are important driving-forces. “I try and develop a rapport immediately, with an emphasis on introducing lay people and newly sued agencies/corporations to the litigation process to ease their anxiety over being sued,” she says. “I [also] believe that communication is fundamental to success.”

Outside of MGC, Carrie enjoys backyard birding, cheering with her husband for their two boys in Little League, and cooking for family and friends.
