Liana vigorously defends her clients in premises liability disputes and provides advice on insurance coverage matters. Before becoming a defense attorney, Liana was an attorney at a plaintiff’s personal injury firm. Her experience on both sides of the aisle has given her useful insight into resolving cases efficiently.

Following her graduation from Seton Hall Law, Liana clerked for the Honorable Dennis J. O’Brien, J.S.C. (Ret.) while he was still on the bench in the Monmouth County Superior Court in New Jersey. This invaluable experience set her up for a successful career as a litigator. 

Liana frequently guest lectures to college, master’s degree, and doctoral candidates on the implications of recent Supreme Court cases on the education industry and on negligence in the school and education setting. 

When not at work, Liana can be found taking in a Broadway show in New York City or spending time with her husband and their golden retriever, Hercules.
