My practice is focused on the areas of construction law and real estate, and the unique legal challenges facing these areas.
From construction project disputes, to closing on complicated real estate transactions, I can assist you in resolving your legal needs. I regularly assist clients in contract negotiations, litigation and arbitration, lien filings and disputes, delay and warranty claims, theft by contractor, right to cure, home improvement practices claims, and foreclosure.
In addition to being a lawyer, I hold a degree in Civil Engineering, with a focus in construction project management, and have work experience as an engineering technician on various large transportation, municipal and building construction projects throughout southeastern Wisconsin.
I am happy to discuss your legal challenges with a free phone consultation: 414-727-6250.

- Q. Have Neighbor that took out line fence on property without my knowledge, now claims 20ft of my property.
- A: You would have a claim against your neighbor for trespass and damages for removal of the fence if it was on your property. There may be additional damages for removal of trees. The first step in these claims is usually to clearly identify the lot line through a survey that locates the original locations of the removed items. Based on the dispute of the lot line, it would be beneficial to be able to clearly identify the lot line and establish your rights.

- Q. My neighbor is threatening to sue me over water drainage issues that I believe are self-inflicted. Should I worry?
- A: Responsibility for the run-off will depend upon a lot of factors. Understanding your legal rights and responsibilities in this situation before it escalates further would most likely save you time, money and aggravation. A real estate lawyer will be able to advise you further.
- Q. Is it possible to terminate a vacant land offer to purchase if the seller did not provide a map of the property by date
- A: Whether you can terminate the Offer will depend on the terms of the contingency contained in the Offer. Oftentimes there are time limits for both the Seller's compliance with the terms, and the time period in which a Buyer is permitted to terminate. Prompt review of the Offer would be best to preserve your rights.
