Mackensie collaborates with a wide variety of clients in the practice areas of civil and commercial litigation, labor and employment, and intellectual property. Her background in communications and public policy inform her approach to dynamic problem solving and client-empowered advocacy. As someone who takes the “counselor” part of job seriously, she believes strongly in making the legal system more accessible and does so, in part, through breaking down complex legal concepts and offering approachable advice.
