At Keller Postman, Sophia’s practice focuses on mass torts and complex tort litigation. Specifically, Sophia supports the firm’s efforts in representing servicemembers, military families, and other civilians who were exposed to toxic water at U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in litigation against the U.S. government. As a spouse, daughter, and sister to those who serve this country, she brings a deeply personal investment to her work, ensuring that every victim of this tragedy receives the justice they deserve.
Sophia started her litigation career as a public defender, proudly advocating for hundreds of clients and winning numerous trials. Sophia then became an Associate at Priest & Miller, LLP, where she represented a variety of clients in civil litigation at both the state and federal level.
Sophia clerked for two different distinguished courts. She was the recipient of the Dean Acheson Fellowship, allowing her to serve as one of two Americans at the Court of Justice for the European Union. She then clerked for the Supreme Court of Guam for two years before beginning her career in litigation.
Sophia earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia, with distinction, and graduated with honors from the George Washington University Law School. While in law school, she was recognized as a Thurgood Marshall Scholar and received the Judge Albert H. Grenadier Award for her achievements in appellate law.
Before becoming a lawyer, Sophia served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Dominican Republic, where she steadfastly advocated against human rights violations and worked with her community to build their first library.
"I think being a lawyer is a special kind of superpower. It is the ability to help people seek justice, to fight for people, and make the world a better place. I am proud to use that power for good."
