Cara is an associate in the labor and employment practice group.
Before joining Thompson Coburn, Cara worked for a labor and employment law firm in Los Angeles. There, Cara counseled employers through all stages of the civil litigation process, including by drafting several successful summary judgment motions that resulted in case dismissals.
Prior to moving to Los Angeles, Cara served as an attorney at a legal aid organization in Chicago, where she provided legal services as a part of a holistic program working with communities impacted by gun violence. She also worked at a public university where she helped shape the university's response to incidents of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation.
Cara received her J.D. from the University of Iowa College of Law, where she served as an Articles Editor for the Transnational Law and Contemporary Problems legal journal. She also participated in her law school's legal clinic where she provided pro bono civil legal services.
