Kayleen credits her love of learning, logic, and research to her excellent public education in New Jersey. While applying those skills in the field of science as an undergraduate, Kayleen discovered an aptitude for problem solving and persuasion. A career in law was the next logical step.
In law school, Kayleen was one of eight students selected as a member of the school’s National Trial Advocacy Team. She also was a teaching assistant for the school’s mock trial program. Her many hours spent in the courtroom honing her oral advocacy skills made her an excellent listener and very determined problem solver.
As a school law attorney, Kayleen enjoys applying her knowledge and experience to finding solutions that address the unique needs and multi-faceted challenges of her district clients.
Prior to joining Parker McCay, Kayleen served as a judicial law clerk in the Appellate Division of the Superior Court of New Jersey, gaining a comprehensive knowledge of New Jersey appellate practice and procedure. Kayleen also served as an intern for the Honorable Freda Wolfson in the District Court of New Jersey during law school. Her experience in state and federal court has given her a strong understanding of the litigation process and how to successfully represent a client in any forum.
