Before starting my own law firm, I worked for law firms in New York City. I represented people and businesses in lawsuits in court. Other clients needed help with transactions for themselves or their businesses. Some of my favorite clients were young families and small business owners and working with them inspired me to start my own law firm in 2011.
WHAT I LEARNED
Starting my own business helped me understand the challenges and opportunities that confront business owners at all stages of their entrepreneurial journeys. I was immediately amazed at the creative and innovative ways that these businesses worked with their customers. We quickly learned that the heart of a small business is constantly learning and adapting to the changing markets we all operate in.
My business grew and expanded with my clients. We were able to explore new and innovative ways to move our businesses forward. For some clients, their business reached its zenith and it was time to plan for the future or, in some cases, divest their interest or dissolve their partnership so they can pursue new business opportunities.
WHO ARE MY CLIENTS
Running these businesses are people who are passionate and have non-business matters that need legal guidance too. For those individuals, I have represented them in real estate transactions, trust agreements, estate planning, and other legal arrangements to plan for their futures. Unfortunately, some people have complex and high conflict family matters, including divorces, child custody fights and domestic violence orders of protection, and I strive to get the best possible outcomes and treat their cases with the dignity and respect that such an emotional time needs.
WHAT I DO WHEN I AM NOT IN THE OFFICE
When not practicing law, I’m an avid soccer fan and music lover who enjoys playing tennis and exploring my untapped potential as an amateur chef. Each day, I try to wind down with a good book and I am always on the lookout for a good book to read next.
