Claudia obtained her law degree from the Westfälische Wilhelms University in Münster, Germany in 2004. Thereafter, she completed her two-year legal traineeship at the Higher Regional Court in Hamm, Germany. In 2007, Claudia relocated to Los Angeles and began her legal career at a well-known defense litigation firm.

Most recently, Claudia defended healthcare providers, including skilled nursing facilities, residential care facilities, hospitals, physicians and nurses, with focus in the areas of elder abuse, negligence, medical malpractice and wrongful death.
