A former litigator, Pam began her legal career with Bickel & Brewer, a commercial litigation boutique in Dallas, followed by four years as a litigation associate in Jenner & Block’s Chicago office and nearly five years with Sugar, Friedberg & Felsenthal, also in Chicago.

One of her most rewarding experiences was obtaining an acquittal on behalf of a client accused of first degree murder after a weeklong jury trial.
