About me

I focus on understanding my clients’ business and strategic goals so that I can aid in their success.  I am driven to help my clients be market leaders.

My practice focuses on all aspects of corporate law, health law, and mergers and acquisitions.  My clients are primarily entrepreneurs, closely held businesses, healthcare providers, tax-exempt organizations, and companies focused on renewable energy. In addition to serving as a lawyer for my clients, I particularly enjoy assisting my clients with strategic planning and business development, and my clients frequently ask me to present issues at Board of Director and other governance meetings.
