About Me

I help companies that build. My objective is to provide quality legal representation in a timely and cost-effective manner to the owner, architect, engineer, contractor, and manufacturer. Before I became an attorney in 2000, I worked as a project engineer, then superintendent, for an Engineering News-Record Top 400 contractor. To any matter in which I am involved, I bring my years of experience in construction.


My practice areas respond to the legal needs of my clients, and include Construction Law, Business Law, Real Estate, and Bankruptcy. 


I prepare contracts, subcontracts, mechanics’ liens, completion agreements, and takeover agreements. I litigate payment disputes, bid disputes, delay claims, disruption claims, warranty claims, design errors and omissions, defective work, incomplete work, contractor default, termination for cause, and termination for convenience.


I assist the corporation, limited liability company, partnership, and sole proprietorship with its business formation, operations, commercial contracts, reorganizations, mergers and acquisitions, consolidations, and dissolution.


I represent the buyer or seller of commercial or residential real estate, and the debtor or creditor in a bankruptcy proceeding.
