About Me

I come to Fort Point Legal having started my own practice out of law school and served the small business, startup, and artist community in that role since 2009. I have experience structuring organizations from formation to dissolution, negotiating, drafting, and revising the contracts that make businesses tick, and litigating disputes when relationships break down. I'm also the resident intellectual property nerd, helping businesses leverage copyright, trademark, and trade secret protections to develop their products, grow their brands, and be successful in the marketplace.
