I work as a part of the team that assists clients in connection with construction and real estate matters. I have experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants on a wide range of matters including contract disputes, construction defect and warranty claims, employment-related issues, mechanic’s lien disputes, title disputes, and more. I also review and counsel my clients on various contracts, including residential and commercial development contracts.
I have worked on cases of varying sizes, and I’ve found that the outcome is determined in large part by the amount of work that’s put in. When starting any case, I make your business my business. I take on your struggles and fight for them like I would fight for my own. Practicing law this way gives me the ability to advise my clients regarding the best methods for proceeding through dispute resolution, and allows me to develop tactics, strategies, and understanding to help us achieve a favorable outcome.
My career at Winthrop has allowed me to engage in litigation encompassing a wide range of topics, and a large portion of my practice is focused on real estate litigation and construction law. In addition, I believe in using my skills for the benefit of my community, and take on pro bono legal matters, including with the Tubman Pro Bono Safety Project, assisting individuals in obtaining harassment restraining orders against abusers. I am also passionate about mental health, and am a member of the section of the firm’s Wellness committee that focuses on mental health issues in the legal field and beyond.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and children, reading, playing piano, taking walks and baking. My faith is also very important to me, and I am an active member of my parish.
