Career Overview

Current Focus: I focus my practice on community development and affordable housing finance. I have represented developers, investors and lenders involved with projects that utilize the syndication of new markets tax credits, low-income housing tax credits and historic tax credits.

Prior to joining the firm, I practiced commercial litigation involving corporate, contractual and financial restructuring issues.
