About me

I have practiced corporate and business law since admission to the New York State Bar in 1990. I received my J.D., cum laude, from the State University of New York at Buffalo Law School and her B.A. in economics and political science from Canisius College, magna cum laude.


In addition to managing the firm, I also am the head of HoganWillig's Corporate & Business Law Department. I assist clients with business formations (sole proprietorship, partnership, corporations, and limited liability companies), acquisitions, sales or dissolutions, as well as the preparation of any commercial document/contract, ranging from an employment agreement to a lease. In addition, I counsel non-for-profit organizations on nonprofit law and governance, obtaining and maintaining tax-exempt status and 501(c) classifications.  I also counsel individuals with bankruptcy issues (Chapter 7 and Chapter 13) as well as assisting many creditors with protecting their rights in bankruptcy. I am able to provide assistance to creditors with their general collection needs. I oversee the representation of an automobile lender statewide.


In partnership with our Litigation Department, our Business & Corporate Law Department engages in civil litigation in all courts in Western New York with regard to commercial issues such as breach of contract, fraud, collections, foreclosure and business disputes. I have also presented at seminars on landlord/tenant matters.


I serve as the President on the Board of Directors of the Amherst Meals on Wheels, is a Vice President and 2010 Volunteer of the Year for Southeast Works, a local not-for-profit serving individuals with developmental disabilities, and volunteers for the Western New York Food Shuttle.
