OVER 30 YEARS EXPERIENCE.

I have served as general counsel for the U.S. subsidiary of a global manufacturer of products for the building industry and as assistant counsel for a national real estate developer of master-planned communities.

During my 12 year career in the manufacturing industry, I counseled my company’s senior management team and board of directors on the legal issues applicable to that industry and worked on the legal documents for the supply, distribution, transport, marketing, and sale of its products for commercial and consumer use. I also handled, on a nationwide basis, all plant acquisitions, commercial and warehouse leasing, real estate financing, and the construction contracts for new plants and plant expansion projects. Additionally, I played a significant role in corporate governance by authoring the company’s 2009 code of professional conduct and handling its internal investigations.

The balance of my 30+ year legal career has been entirely in the real estate industry. I have mostly represented developers, builders and contractors of commercial, residential and industrial properties. I have extensive experience in the housing industry after counseling residential developers on all facets of their industry, from the land acquisition and financing stage though the closing or leasing of the completed dwelling units. I have prepared legal documents for many planned unit developments and for single building, mixed-use and phased condominium projects. I have also served as senior underwriting counsel in Florida for a leading national title insurer.

I have always been detail oriented and solution driven. Whether in-house or private practice, I have never lost sight of what matters the most: satisfying the client’s expectations. This matters so much to me that it is the foundation of my Mission Statement.
