About
I have been practicing corporate and business law for over twenty years. You may refer to my work history to review my experience in corporate structuring, capital structuring, mergers & acquisitions, contracts, risk mitigation and board governance. What is important to me as an attorney is that we work together. As an entrepreneur, I understand that legal services must juxtapose with business considerations, and that timing is key. It is my pleasure to offer you a free thirty minute consultation.
