I work extensively with commercial and residential real estate developers, investors, property managers, and owners on litigation related to easement and property right disputes, partnership disputes, landlord-tenant litigation, lease enforcement actions, contract disputes, consumer class actions, statutory and regulatory challenges, evictions proceedings, low-income housing tax credit financing, and year-15 exit disputes. I have represented clients throughout Minnesota and across the United States.
I became a litigator to have the opportunity to solve other peoples’ problems. My family came from humble beginnings—my grandparents emigrated to the United States from Greece during and after World War II—and built their lives through small, family-owned businesses, with very few resources. As small business owners, my grandparents encountered legal issues, and relied on counsel from a trusted litigator to overcome them. Litigation, big or small, is stressful, and can be a critical inflection point for any business. That is why I approach my litigation practice with my clients’ business objectives as my top priority—I use my legal knowledge and litigation experience as guiding forces to achieve my clients’ business objectives, but never let litigation overtake those objectives. With this approach, I am able to cater to the needs of clients who face a wide variety of legal issues and disputes, and I relish every opportunity to do so. I treat each client as if they were my grandparents’ businesses—with tenacity, dedication, and knowledge that often times you only have one shot at creating the winning case.
Outside of work, I love all Minnesota sports, especially the Vikings, and seek out anything to do with being outdoors. I also love to experiment with new food recipes, and enjoy spending time with family and friends, which usually takes place around the dinner table.
