My practice focuses on helping entrepreneurs, startup companies, and established businesses create and maintain a strong legal structure that allows them to focus on growing their business. I use my experience to assist clients in an affordable, cost-effective way. I have over 20 years of business law experience with high-growth and family-owned companies. I began my legal career in the corporate law department of Frost Brown Todd in Cincinnati, Ohio. I then went on to become in-house counsel with both privately-held and publicly-traded companies, including Standard Textile, a family-owned business in its third generation, Luxottica Retail, and, as general counsel, at Pomeroy IT Solutions, also a family-owned business, in its second generation. In 2010 I moved to Denver, where I did legal work for Allonhill LLC, and taught math for two years in Denver Public Schools. This teaching experience, as well as earlier adjunct teaching experience at the University of Denver, has helped me to break down and explain complex legal topics in a way that my audience--and clients--can understand and use in achieving their objectives. I received my law degree from Boston College Law School. My undergraduate education was at Harvard University, where I received a bachelor’s degree in government. I also completed a master’s degree in international affairs at Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs in New York City. I have also taught as an adjunct instructor in Agency and Partnerships at the Sturm College of Law at the University of Denver, and in international business law at the Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver.
