Brooke began her legal career in 1996, specializing in commercial transactions and licensing for high technology companies. After working as in-house counsel for HP and Agilent Technologies for many years, Brooke co-founded KM Law Partners, LLP and continues to negotiate complex deals for the firm’s clients. Brooke grew up in a family of public school teachers, so she understands the demands and challenges teachers face in the classroom to meet all of their students’ social-emotional as well as academic needs. She and her husband have two teenage daughters who attend school in the Palo Alto Unified School District, so she also appreciates the pressures students face here in the Silicon Valley. Brooke has a B.A. from UCSD and a J.D. from Santa Clara Law School. In her spare time, she enjoys keeping up with her active teenagers, gardening, hiking and traveling with her family, and walks with her Weimaraner.
