About Me

My Mission is to provide my clients with legal services that actually reflect what they are trying to accomplish.  My clients benefit from the fact that I have real-world business experience.  Out of college, I worked for Ball Corporation as an editor; and after law school, in addition to representing the indigent as a contract attorney for Legal Services, I also founded and ran my own successful business start up.

My clients also benefit from the time and care I take with them.  Usually charging a flat-fee rate, I am able to take time to make sure my clients understand their choices in regards to planning their estates or business entities – and how these choices will affect their lives and the lives of their loved ones.  I understand that my law practice is not just what I do but also a reflection of who I am.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time in nature, in meditation and in taking adventures. I am very happy to call the Colorado Rockies my home!  

Affiliations include Colorado Bar Association, Boulder Bar Association, the prestigious Boulder County Estate Planning Council, and the Availability of Legal Services Committee, and the National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA).  I graduated from the University of Colorado School of Law in 1996, having attended on a full academic scholarship.
