For Tami, the natural step after university was to attend law school. While in law school, Tami clerked for two Federal judges, and spent time at a firm devoted to ensuring that dangerous products, containing harmful poisons and toxins, were off consumer shelves. Tami graduated from St. Louis University School of Law in 2006 and was soon recruited to work for a prestigious plaintiff firm in downtown St. Louis. As part of her practice, Tami was involved in pursuing claims against large insurance companies on behalf of her clients who were injured in traumatic railway accidents. For many of these clients, Tami was more than just a lawyer. She was a person who listened and was sensitive to their needs. It was while working at this firm that Tami began to realize how defenseless many people were against corporations and insurance companies.
