She litigated for more than ten years at an established North Carolina defense firm on behalf of employers, businesses, and insurance companies. Also, Tara is a licensed patent attorney with experience litigating intellectual property matters and other complex business disputes and workplace issues. Tara understands litigants' concern about the bottom line and the time value of money. She enables parties to meet their goals, both by resolving current disputes and identifying future conflict.
