About me

I like to solve problems and bring adverse parties together. I wasn't the kind of kid who would run away from a fight or a disagreement. I didn't take my ball home when the kids on the block didn't want to play the game I wanted to play. Instead, I tried to 'figure it out' so we could all keep playing together in a civilized manner. I didn't like to argue or yell to prove a point. Instead, I tried to find common ground to solve the problem together. Over the years, I found that my skills were well suited to transactional work negotiating purchases and sales, as well as negotiating workouts and loss mitigation strategies between creditors and borrowers. I have found that being a real estate attorney satisfies my desire to help people and make a difference in their lives. It's a great day when I help diametrically opposed parties find common ground, 'figure it out,' and leave with smiles on their faces."
