Belinda joined Drew Eckl & Farnham as an associate in 2019 and focuses her practice on representing insurers and employers in workers' compensations claims. Belinda has an understanding of employers' perspectives because her parents are small business owners, where she grew up learning about and assisting her parents with issues employers face.
She previously worked at a smaller firm, also defending insurers and employers in workers' compensations cases. Her investigative nature and ability to be detailed-oriented have assisted her in reducing exposure for her clients, including disputing and successfully decreasing the Medicare Set-Aside Allocation and discovering evidence that significantly reduced an employee's settlement demand.
Before law school, Belinda clerked for a solo practitioner, exposing her to personal injury, financial fraud, bankruptcy, and collections cases. During law school, she interned for the U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Trustee Program assisting in bankruptcy matters, worked as a student attorney and graduate assistant at the Philip C. Cook Low Income Taxpayer Clinic in disputing and resolving legal tax issues with the IRS, and clerked for a small litigation defense firm while also earning her Masters in Business Administration. She also earned the CALI Award for Research, Writing, and Advocacy, during law school, which is given to students with the highest grades in a required legal writing course. Since joining Drew Eckl & Farnham, Belinda has been included in the inaugural edition of Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch for 2021.
Outside of work, Belinda enjoys traveling and participating in running events (5ks-15ks).
