About me

After graduating from Georgetown University Law Center and New York University School of Law (the nation’s #1 rated tax law program), I obtained a coveted position as a tax associate with a prestigious New York City tax boutique (Feingold and Alpert LLP). While in New York City, I represented various businesses and individuals who are household names. After gaining some very useful experience in New York, I went to work in the tax and business departments of two highly regarded California law firms (Allen Matkins Leck Gamble Mallory & Natsis LLP and Farella Braun + Martel LLP). During my time at these large law firms, I represented numerous Fortune 500 Corporations and Forbes 200 individuals.

I have counseled my clients through all forms of transactions and legal decisions, including:

            • section 1031 exchanges,

            • real estate purchase and sale,

            • choice of entity and entity formation,

            • preparation of several dozen operating agreements for LLCs, LPs and LLPs,

            • LLC / partnership mergers and divisions

            • corporate mergers and acquisitions,

            • foreign investment in U.S. businesses and real property,

            • outbound investment by U.S. citizens and corporations in foreign jurisdictions,

            • pre-U.S. residency planning,

            • estate planning,

            • preparation of leases for the rental both real and personal property,

            • preparation of purchase and sale agreements,

            • and many other types of transactions.

Additionally, I have extensive experience representing clients in tax audits and other controversy matters of all sizes and types, ranging from small representations before the IRS to large state and local tax audits (including one matter involving taxable income in excess of $1,100,000,000).

I have represented dozens of real estate private equity funds starting with the formation of these funds and going through to their eventual dissolution.

Most importantly, I come from a family of successful professional business owners, so I am able to relate to the needs of businesspeople.  The combination of my professional background and my family history allows me to bridge the gap between the legal needs and business exigencies of my clients.

If you need a tax, business or real estate attorney, regardless of whether or not your specific legal need is listed above, please call me to find out how I can help you.
