She has experience representing all types of employers and carriers, from small employers with only a few employees to large national companies. Linda counsels her clients on all aspects of Delaware workers' compensation law.

Prior to joining Marshall Dennehey, Linda was a deputy attorney general with the Delaware Department of Justice, where she prosecuted criminal and civil matters. As a deputy attorney general, she represented various state agencies, including the Delaware Industrial Accident Board (IAB).
