My practice is focused on environmental liability in radon and chemical vapor intrusion matters. I represent and counsel businesses, construction companies, engineering firms and real estate developers in the protocols, laws, and best practices in radon measurement, radon mitigation, and chemical vapor intrusion standards, protocols, and state and federal law.
I am certified by the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST) in both radon mitigation and radon measurement. I am the Vice President of Finance for the Midwest Chapter of AARST, and I am also a member of their Board of Directors.
I teach continuing education courses to radon professionals, small businesses and tradesman regarding liability and legal issues specific to their trades and industries.
I have been a coach of the Hamline University School of Law's Negotiation Competition team since 2010. Hamline University School of Law's Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) program has consistently been ranked in the top 3 of all Law School ADR programs for over 15 years. As a law student, I competed in the American Bar Association (ABA) Negotiation Competition in 2008, winning Region 7. In 2009, I advanced to the National Semi-final round.
As a law student, I earned top honors (CALI Awards) in Constitutional Law: Seminar; Advanced Deposition Skills, and was awarded top oralist in the Appellate Argument for Legal Research and Writing III.
