Molly was born and raised in Sacramento, California. She pursued her undergraduate legal studies at the University of California, Berkeley. Molly has been employed at law firms since age 15 as a file clerk, law clerk, court runner, and paralegal before returning home to Sacramento to attend McGeorge School of Law.
Obtaining her license in 1996, Molly developed her litigation skills defending personal injury, premises liability, and employment and discrimination cases. She then focused her practice on protecting doctors and hospitals from malpractice and Elder Abuse claims. Molly opened her practice in December 2015, using her extensive litigation experience to prosecute and defend complex business litigation claims, including intellectual property disputes, personal injury, employment, discrimination, and malpractice cases. An expert in law and motion practice, she holds a rather impressive record of success in winning and defeating summary judgment motions. She has argued in the First and Third District Courts of Appeal and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal. Molly enjoys the study of the law and working with her clients and experts to determine the best course of action in prosecuting or defending complicated legal and factual claims.
Inspired by YMC’s mission, Molly has joined YMC to focus her practice on defending schools and school administrators against employment, labor, and personal injury claims. She is admitted in all of California’s state and federal courts, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal, and the United States Supreme Court.
Outside of work, Molly is a passionate and devoted member of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training. In her years as a participant, mentor, captain, and coach in marathons, cycling events, and triathlons, she has raised tens of thousands of dollars in support of the mission of LLS to find a cure for blood cancers and to improve the lives of blood cancer patients. Molly has also been a musician since grade school. She met her husband in the California Repercussions, a band in which they have both played at music festivals worldwide. Molly also enjoys travel, cooking, and spending time with her Australian Shepherds.
