Automobile Accidents, Negligence, Tort Actions, Litigation
Tara devoted the early years of her career at a plaintiff’s personal injury firm advocating for the injured. There, she had the opportunity to handle many challenging cases and hone her trial skills. She litigated a variety of matters from motor vehicle accidents to trip, slip and fall cases. She rises to the challenge of obtaining just compensation for clients harmed through the negligence of others. Tara has always been there for them during the hardest of times.
Previously, Tara handled cases on the other side, working for one of New York’s largest insurance companies. This afforded the opportunity of seeing how carriers work and think in the defense of personal injury claims. In this capacity Tara gained valuable knowledge of exactly what an insurance company is looking for when evaluating a case. She is well aware of the defenses that might be mounted against those she represents and how to overcome them.
Her professional experiences on both sides of the fence, plaintiff and defendant, have imbued her with a passion for helping the injured in times of need. With a unique insider understanding as a former member of the defense bar, Tara has an impressive ability at Fellows Hymowitz Rice LLC to use this knowledge to the advantage of our clients.
Tara resides with her family and their dog, Charlie. She has a passion for reading and hiking, especially the trails of Mohonk Mountain.
