About Me

I am a commercial litigator whose practice focuses on construction, real estate, business, and insurance coverage matters. Over the past several years, I have represented numerous residential and commercial owners, businesses, Homeowner Associations, developers, general contractors, subcontractors, and product suppliers in cases involving professional liability, commercial litigation, construction, product liability, breach of contract, real estate, insurance, extra-contractual issues, and general liability.  I have successfully represented clients in litigation, on appeal and through alternative dispute resolution.
