About Me

My practice at Friedman Iverson is focused on business law, intellectual property, and entertainment. I work with clients ranging from start-ups to companies with millions of dollars in annual revenue. You will find me to be approachable, pragmatic and a creative problem solver. When I'm not working I enjoy running, seeing live music and playing pub trivia.
