When she’s not slaying legal dragons or her two kids’ imaginary dragons, Allison HIITs as many fitness classes as possible, including practicing Bikram yoga and teaching High Fitness. She makes a mean plate of Sriracha chicken wings, has been known to sew an entire outfit in a spare evening, and can hold her own in an intense game of Settlers of Catan. She is only slightly embarrassed by the size of her jacket collection.
Growing up in a Japanese-American family firmly rooted Allison’s love of language, culture, and travel. Years of language study throughout her education led Allison to a field where she gets to analyze, argue, and write about the meaning of words for a living (she was one of those students who enjoyed writing assignments). Her practice is centered primarily in commercial litigation defense; she is also a licensed domestic mediator.
