Commitment to Clients and Communities

I am grateful to have the opportunity to use my legal skills and experience to have a positive impact on communities that are too often ignored.

Career Overview

Current Focus: I joined Applegate & Thorne-Thomsen in 2021. I focus my practice on community development transactions, particularly representation of QALICBs (borrowers), CDEs (lenders) and investors in New Markets Tax Credit-financed transactions.

Prior to joining Applegate & Thorne-Thomsen, I represented clients in real estate and financing transactions, including real estate acquisitions and dispositions, leasing, real estate-secured financing, receivables financing, and the real estate aspects of corporate transactions.
