What was once simple is no longer simple, but it can be again . . .

Unfortunately we find ourselves in a highly litigious culture where things have become so convoluted that a simple handshake and the notion of personal responsibility are no longer the only things we need to navigate a transaction.

I walked away from a prominent career as a business and real estate transactions and litigation lawyer for a prestigious national law firm in the United States. I served some of the largest corporations in the world. Now I am using my extensive legal knowledge and experience to assist individuals, entrepreneurs and startups - providing them the same exceptional legal counsel I provided large corporations.

At this time I am focusing my practice on the following:

  • Business Formation, Growth and Sale
    • formation of LLC, corporation, nonprofits;
    • corporate documents;
    • government compliance;
    • management, employee, and contractor agreements;
    • obtaining seed and angel investments;
    • stock issuance and agreements;
    • protection of intellectual property;
    • purchase and sale agreements related to the business, its physical assets and intellectual property;
    • licensing issues; and
    • most other contract, compliance and litigation matters related to business formation, growth and sale.

If you need assistance with any of the foregoing matters, I can offer you thoughtful and compassionate legal representation with authentic and dedicated support towards achieving your ultimate goal.  

Regardless of the service you require you can rest assured that I will personally be handling the matter or managing the completion of the particular task or project on your behalf. My goal here is to provide you with the peace of mind that comes from knowing you have an experienced and competent individual handling your legal needs and available to you as a legal and business consultant. Your time should not be spent researching how to perform a legal task or acquiring the knowledge that I possess, it should be spent performing your service, perfecting your product, managing and growing your business, or laying on a beach somewhere fabulous. 

A Little More About Me

I grew up in southern New Jersey, exploring the woods, playing soccer and surfing. I moved to Florida when I was eighteen to attend college. After attending the University of North Florida, where I graduated in the top 1% in the United States with a Bachelor of Business Administration in finance and real estate, I took six months and traveled by myself throughout Asia. I then attended Florida Coastal School of Law where I was a Dean’s Scholar and obtained my Juris Doctor degree.

While in law school I worked with Barker & Barker, P.A., a boutique business and real estate law firm. After law school I took an associate attorney position at Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP.  I personally managed and performed legal work on an extensive portfolio of matters on behalf of some of the largest companies in the world, including but not limited to financial institutions, mortgage servicers, asset management companies, venture capitalist, real estate investors, tech companies, and insurance companies.

Today I am based between Winter Park, Florida and Haleiwa, Hawaii. I am an avid world traveler, spending a significant amount of time in Southeast Asia and along the Mediterranean. I started a not for profit (www.lovelephant.com) focused on rehoming Asian elephants and I am in investor in a number of startups. I practice yoga and meditation on a daily basis. I believe in abundance; therefore my intention is to help others, in doing that, my needs and desires will always be met. I am ready to help you.
