Service Description

I believe the terms outlined in a legal document should be concise, relevant and legible by lawyers and non-lawyers alike. My goal is for non-lawyers to understand the document without needing another lawyer to interpret.

Similarly, legal research memorandums should be succinct and efficiently organized to allow the reader to get the needed information at a glance.

I do not understand the use of the word "wherefrom" so I exclude it and other convoluted legal words and phrases. When two people come to a "meeting of the minds", I can put that down on paper in plain English, skipping the unnecessary and repetitive language.

Sometimes the transaction is more or less complicated than the client oringally understands and I thrive on clearing the air in those types of muddled circumstances. My legal mind is as sharp as my business mind and I can offer guidance on a variety of proposed plans, compliance questions or contract negotiation points.

I am passionate about the research and writing process and I consistently produce memos which are thorough and comprehensive, yet organized and relevant to the issues requested.

Outside of my work life I enjoy reading, debating, traveling, playing volleyball and when I can, relaxing in nature on a beach or a hike through the woods.
