Molly is a tenacious advocate who aims to provide clear information and thorough analysis to her clients in the public and governmental realms.
Molly attended Creighton University, where she triple majored in Sociology Applied Data, Medical Anthropology, and Health Administration and Policy. At Creighton, she was introduced to legal mechanisms that influenced social disparities in the issuance of protection orders and Title IX investigation practices. Inspired, she set out to learn more about the intersection of law and society within the public realm.
Molly then attended Villanova University, where she obtained her dual Juris Doctor and Master of Public Administration. Throughout law school, she worked for Villanova's Institute to Address Commercial Sexual Exploitation as a graduate researcher and Farmworker's Legal Aid Clinic as a student attorney. These experiences provided a trauma-informed, victim-centered approach to her legal analysis and research.
Prior to joining Ancel Glink, Molly prosecuted various misdemeanor and felony criminal matters as a Cook County Assistant State's Attorney. There, she conducted Preliminary Hearings, prepared Grand Jury witness testimony, drafted charging instruments, and represented the People of the State of Illinois through various hearings including Petitions to Rescind Statutory Summary Suspension, Bench and Jury trials, and numerous pre-trial motions.
Molly enjoys taking her pup to the dog beach, biking down Lake Shore Drive, and exploring state and national parks with her husband, Tim.
