Tax law is not just a set of rules that tells you what to do: it’s a body of law that creates incentives for people to do something. That’s what makes it so exciting and interesting to work with – as tax lawyers, we get to analyze those incentives and put them into action to help people. Whether it’s creating affordable housing, developing solar power availability, or rehabilitating and preserving historic buildings, I love being able to use my skills to provide a direct benefit to the community.
Outside of work, I like to get outdoors, whether it’s running, biking, or playing my newfound hobby, pickleball – it’s the perfect middle ground between ping pong and tennis. During the colder months I enjoy playing hockey. Whether it’s strapping on the pads and minding the net in organized play, or lacing up the skates on the outdoor pond, I love to get out on the ice.
I represent clients in tax-related aspects of real estate development, particularly in relation to the development of affordable housing and renewable energy resources. I enjoy digging into the weeds of the tax code to find solutions for my clients, while still keeping in mind the big picture of their end goals. I have a background in accounting, and I apply those skills to my representation of clients.
While in law school, I worked as a certified student attorney, as well as the Student Director, of the Ronald M. Mankoff Tax Clinic through the University. I gained valuable, firsthand experience working with clients to resolve tax controversies ranging from tax return audits to tax collection cases.
