Kara spent three years in private practice after graduating from Indiana University School of Law in 2000. During that time, she practiced civil law and attended court hearings in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Indiana.
Kara has been a Monroe County Public Defender for the last 16 years and has represented indigent clients in felony, misdemeanor, juvenile and civil cases (CHINS). Directing all aspects of the clients’ cases, she has attended court hearings with clients, assessed the strength of their legal arguments, and apprised them of their legal options. Handling large caseloads, she strives to treat all clients fairly and with compassion.
Kara has dedicated her career to making sure everyone has equal access to legal options and are treated fairly under the law.
Kara believes in the positive impact problem solving courts can have on the participants and our community.
Kara believes that her 19 years of courtroom experience will translate into making the courtroom less intimidating and more responsive for the victims of crime, the accused, participants, attorneys and staff involved in the cases coming before her.

“People ask me how I can defend people who are accused of crimes. My answer is everyone is presumed innocent and is afforded a competent defense, and when you sit down and talk to clients you realize that they are people just like you but because of circumstances, such as substance use disorder or mental health challenges that may or may not have been under their control, they still need your help.”
