It is my top priority to be attentive and responsive to my clients’ needs. While I focus on real estate or leasing transactions, I also understand that our clients are real people. My clients include residential and commercial developers and builders throughout the Washington, D.C. and Baltimore region. I regularly assist them with negotiating and drafting land and building acquisition contracts and development documents, easements, loan documents, private water and sewer utility documents and home purchase contracts. A large portion of my practice is planning and drafting governing documents to establish homeowners’, commercial, master, mixed-use and condominium associations.  I work with both landlords and tenants drafting and negotiating various types of commercial leases for medical practices, retail spaces, restaurants, warehouses and other industrial buildings. I help these clients understand the complex issues and language that will likely affect them for years. Furthermore, I help many restaurant owners with their unique legal issues, including liquor licensing.
