About Arete

Learn Arete’s areas of practice.

I’m an attorney with over twenty years experience drafting contracts, managing teams and projects, resolving disputes, negotiating settlements, and handling real estate transactions. I purchased and renovated my first home in 2005.

I know the importance of a comprehensive remodeling contract laying out the parties’ agreement, responsibilities, and expectations. It’s the best opportunity to ensure everyone’s on the same page. But signing the contractor’s document is not good enough. That contract protects the contractor. It must be revised to protect the homeowner’s interests as well.

While the contract is the foundation for a successful remodel, the homeowner must still play an active role in the process. I was fortunate to have readily transferable skills, but it’s easy to feel overwhelmed when you don’t know what to do or expect. That’s why legal coaching and support are essential.

I founded Renovation Legal so no one would have to navigate renovations alone or feel intimidated by the experience. A strong contract and ongoing support can help you have the home of your dreams.
