About Me

I provide a wide range of legal services, concentrating on transactional and dispute resolution issues in business law (including structuring and organizing your business entities), commercial real estate and construction law for both businesses and individuals.  While I have worked with a number of large corporations and a diverse range of businesses in my career, many of my clients are small business owners and professionals.  I also have a number of clients that have had serious construction-related problems.  I strive to provide not only sound legal advice for clients, but also practical and sound business information for efficient and effective decisions.
