I joined NC Eminent Domain Law Firm in 2013 as an attorney in the firm’s Eminent Domain department.
I received my J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School in 1994. Three years before, I had graduated from Wayne State University, where I received my B.A. in Political Science with a minor in Economics.
Prior to joining NC Eminent Domain Law Firm, I had worked as an Assistant Attorney General for the North Carolina Department of Justice for nearly 13 years, where I practiced eminent domain law for the Department of Transportation. My experience included functioning as the lead attorney on a case with the largest exposure the Department had ever faced at that point in time.
My experience of working for the “other side” gives me insight into how the DOT operates.
Working for the DOT really opened my eyes to what the eminent domain process is like in North Carolina. I saw firsthand the difference between property owners who hired a qualified attorney and those who did not. I want to make sure each and every one of my clients is heard, and I’m excited to put my experience to work for them every time.
I have taken dozens of cases to trial in North Carolina, including a number of high-dollar, high-exposure cases, acting as lead attorney and arguing cases before the North Carolina Court of Appeals.
