About me

See the caption to the picute above--that about says it all.

I am a business attorney with an advanced degree in Tax Law.  I spent five years with a nationally known boutique commercial litigation firm and later was a partner at a well-established transaction boutique--which means I know what can happen if the smallest detail is either assumed or missed. I specialize in working with companies from formation through sale or reorganization. I serve select companies as their “virtual” in-house counsel.

I love my work, but I live in Colorado because of the lifestyle--to enjoy the outdoors and have plenty of time for family and community.
