About me

I represent Pennsylvania and New Jersey entrepreneurs and business entities regionally and internationally in a wide scope of business and commercial real estate transactions, including acquisitions, financing, and property development. I also assist clients with entity formation, contract negotiations, succession planning and the related field of estate planning.

In the real estate field, I have provided legal services for acquisitions and multi-million dollar renovations such as historic Philadelphia Navy Yard building projects.

I handle significant contract and intellectual property matters, including license and service agreement negotiations, national distribution contracts, and joint ventures. An example of my work in the area of business transactions was assisting a client in a $70 million stock sale transaction and the preparation and review of related documents in collaboration with others. 

My pro bono work is important to me. I am a member of the Mercy Catholic Medical Center Board of Trustees, including oversight of Mercy Philadelphia Hospital and Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital. I also serve the Kimmel Center as part-time legal counsel on a pro bono basis.
