Biography

I am an accomplished ADA Compliance & Defense attorney. With a practice encompassing over 30 years, I am dedicated to providing exceptional service and legal representation. I am a member of the American College of Real Estate Lawyers and on the Advisory Board of Directors of the Advanced Commercial Leasing Institute, Georgetown University Law Center. I also serve as Chair of JMBM's ADA Compliance & Defense Group and am the author of the ADA Compliance & Defense Blog.

My transactional practice includes leasing, lease administration for developers and tenants, acquisition and sales, portfolio management, regulation of real property use and development, eminent domain litigation and counseling, and abstracting lease portfolios, land use regulation and permitting, code compliance, lease termination negotiations, and public relations issues. I advise companies in a full range of ADA compliance.

My litigation experience includes trials and arbitration and covers a wide range of real estate matters including construction disputes, design professional liability cases and ADA defense.

My clients are financial institutions, developers, shopping center owners and retailers, hotels, restaurants, performing arts theaters, wineries and other business property owners.

With vast experience and a deep understanding of real estate transactions and litigation, I have both the knowledge and skill needed to get results. I am committed to achieving my clients' goals and objectives.
