  • Areas of Practice

    • Real Estate & Construction
    • Land Use & Zoning

As an associate Real Estate & Construction attorney, I assist clients with land use, zoning, construction contract disputes, eminent domain, real property tax and real estate transactional matters.


Clients benefit from my proactive and responsive approach to client service, as I view every client as a priority. I make it my job to know my clients’ cases inside and out so I can ensure every avenue is explored, and preventable issues are avoided.


Because I have a strong legal foundation from my experience working in numerous roles within the legal field, I am able to offer clients a unique perspective. No matter the case, I will take the time to understand your needs, advocate for you, and help get you the results you desire.
