Brook went to the University of Oregon School of Law from 2006-2009, where she served as President of the Student Oregon Trial Lawyers, the American Constitution Society, and as executive board member for the Women’s Law Forum. She also served on the steering committee and as Vice-Chair for the American Civil Liberties Union of Lane County, and she was a Morse Fellow for the Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics, an interdisciplinary center for scholars and activists, dedicated to the legacy of Senator Wayne Morse - one of two US Senators to vote against sending troops to Vietnam. Brook also spent her last semester as a visiting student at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law. Brook started working at the Dolan Law Firm in May of 2008 as a law student, and continued working at the Dolan Law Firm as an attorney until March of 2010. While with the Dolan Law Firm she gained valuable litigation experience advocating on behalf of injured, demoralized, or wronged plaintiffs. Now in her capacity as a sole practitioner with her own practice, she enjoys working in the areas of general litigation; family law matters; contract interpretation, drafting, and disputes; elder abuse; medical negligence; wrongful death; product liability; and personal injury. She is particularly interested in climate-change related torts and has written on the rapidly evolving topic.
