With over 25 years of experience representing both public and private clients on a wide variety of projects involving real estate, land use, entitlement issues and public processes, I have learned that projects must be approached with strategic vision, collaboration and legal excellence. I enjoy working with clients to help them work through and achieve their objectives while providing strategic advice about the best way to approach difficult issues. I seek to provide excellent work product timely and efficiently, while keeping clients regularly informed and involved.
