Commitment to Clients and Communities

Real estate law, particularly community development law, is rewarding to me since the results of our efforts are so concrete–I can drive by a development I helped to build or attend a ribbon-cutting and see its positive impact on the community. New markets tax credits law is a small industry and fosters a collegial atmosphere on deals with repeat players all working toward the goal of completing a project that will improve the lives of the residents in under-served areas. Outside of the office, I spend time helping the homeless furry members of our community by volunteering with a local animal shelter as well as visiting residents of senior homes together with Maya, my certified therapy dog.

Career Overview

Current Focus:  I focus my practice primarily on new markets tax credits, but also represent clients in Historic Tax Credits, LIHTC and conventional lending. In my prior life, I practiced in the commercial real estate world representing institutional lenders and large developers.


  • Represented federal new markets and historic tax credit investors in the financing for the rehabilitation of a historic theater in Duluth, Minnesota.
  • Represented source lender and community development entity in the financing of the complete renovation of 12 largely vacant buildings northeast of a historic public market in Cincinnati, Ohio. The project is designed to complement and expand upon the goods and services currently available at the market, including a full-service grocery store, all of which will be accessible to the residents of the low-income community.
