Ohio), in which the Firm’s Appellate Practice Group successfully appealed to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals twice, reversing the district court’s dismissal of the action. She was also a member of the team of attorneys that recovered $13 million in Burges v. BancorpSouth, Inc., No. 3:14-cv-01564 (M.D. Tenn.), and represented investors in Knurr v.
