Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

I am a real estate and business law attorney. I limit my practice to these areas, which include things from setting up HOAs, to neighbor issues, to construction, and real estate fraud. My background is in real estate, where I was a real estate appraiser, property manager, and project manager for condominium conversions and other real estate developments. I understand the hurdles you face on a daily basis if you are a real estate owner, investor, contractor or developer.

A large segment of my client base are small business owners. I understand that you want simple answers to your questions; I help focus on figuring out how to get what you're interested in, explaining your options and deciding what will work best for you.

If you are seeking advice on whether to set up a corporation, LLC, limited partnership or something else, I can help you weigh the advantages of each to see which may be right for you. Preparation of buy/sell agreements, contracts, employment agreements and asset and stock sales, are crucial to your business transactions. If you'd like an attorney who will get back to you quickly with the information you need, you will feel comfortable working with me.

If you have recurring legal needs, but do not want or need a full-time attorney, consider our Virtual General Counsel Program as an affordable option that will fit into your budget.

I am happy to answer any questions you may have - please feel free to contact me at (408) 940-5360 or
