About me

I'm a licensed attorney with over 11 years of experience in everything ranging from commercial litigation, to estate planning, to real estate matters.  From 2008-2011, I took a wonderful break to have a family - but found that I missed the challenges that come with the practice of law, as well as the interaction with clients and peers. 


Today my focus is on real estate transactions - handling everything from the $35,000 REO purchase, to the sale of million dollar homes, to the purchase and sale of commercial properties well in excess of a million dollars.  I always take my clients needs and expectations into consideration and strive to respond quickly to them and get them the answers they want.  A real estate transaction, at any level, is ridden with potential pitfalls.  I am committed to educating my clients on these pitfalls and the protections they need in place, and to making the transaction as smooth as possible.
