Summary

Harvard Law graduate serving southern New Mexico with a focus on Civil Litigation, Business Law, and Regulatory Matters.

I represent small businesses, national non-profits, community groups, and local governments in civil litigation at the state and federal level. In recent months, I have co-authored a petition for certiorari of the U.S. Supreme Court and litigated complex environmental appeals before the U.S. Courts of Appeal for the D.C. and Fifth Circuits. I also helped a New Mexico small business secure a $60,000 settlement in a breach-of-contract matter less than two weeks after accepting its case. Most recently, I took over a breach-of-contract case from another attorney a month before trial, and succeeded in having the case dismissed

In addition to litigating my own cases, I serve as co-counsel with other firms in high stakes litigation. For example, I am currently co-counsel with the Berman Litigation Group in a multi-million dollar breach of contract case in the Central District of California.

I represent clients before state, local, and federal government agencies. Last year, I represented the Brazilian sugarcane ethanol industry in a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rulemaking, and worked closely with a small solar company to pass one of the first Property Assessed Clean Energy ordinances in New Mexico.

I work with New Mexico small businesses to draft contracts, raise capital through exempt securities offerings, and identify tax deductions and credits. For example, I recently helped a start-up prepare an exempt securities offering, drafting its private placement memorandum and securing a “no action” assurance from state regulators.
