About me

Welcome to my Avvo profile. I primarily practice contract and real estate law. I can assist you with almost any matter relating to buying, selling, lending, borrowing, leasing, owning, or managing real estate, goods, or services. I also represent clients with disputes that arise from these transactions. And I form and advise small corporations, LLCs, and partnerships. I am assisted by my able and experienced paralegal, Kim Gallagher. We look forward to serving you.
