I spent almost my first decade in practice garnering experience at various large and medium sized firms throughout the South Florida area. During this time, I represented a variety of clients in bankruptcy, real estate and business law matters. My clientele ranged from national financial institutions to mid-sized community associations and even first time homebuyers. As counsel for such clients, I worked extensively on matters involving creditor rights in bankruptcy cases of all chapters, negotiation of loan modifications and workouts of defaulted loans and accounts, drafting and preparation of renewed loan documentation, as well as, consumer debt collection for community associations. I also have significant training and experience conducting residential real estate title evaluations and closings.
In addition to my practical experience, I have also conducted several bankruptcy law lectures and training modules for institutional clients throughout the United States and abroad. Such engagements often focused on U.S. Bankruptcy laws and their implications for creditors in the bankruptcy arena.
I am a proud member of the South Palm Beach County Florida Association of Women Lawyers and the American Bankruptcy Institution. I have also earned the recognition as a Super Lawyer Rising Star for 2016. I earned my J.D. in 2006 from Nova Southeastern University, Shepard Broad Law Center and her Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Economics from York University in Toronto, Canada in 2001. I am currently admitted to the Florida Bar, as well as, United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern, Northern and Middle Districts of Florida.
