As a former business owner myself, my goal is to help other business owners and entrepreneurs with their legal issues. It's important to have someone in your corner who understands what it's like to be in your shoes. Advice is only helpful if it makes sense in the real world, and my prior experience allows me to see the real world implications.

Before law school, I opened a small coffee shop that I grew into a full-fledged restaurant within four years. In the beginning, I was able to use marketing to help grow the business over 200% from year to year.

That experience has been invaluable in how I practice law. I weigh the real world cost/benefits analysis of everything and figure out whether one path is better than the other.

My skills and specialties include:

- Corporate Formation
- Contract Drafting and Review
- Civil Litigation
- Cannabis Business & Regulations
- Online marketing (SEO, Social Media)
- Financial planning
- Business planning
- Legal research/writing
