I graduated from Georgetown Law in 2009 and have been practicing for fourteen years. I primarily work on commercial contracts. I specialize in drafting, reviewing, and negotiating MSAs for services companies, specializing in SaaS agreements. I have drafted online terms of service, acceptance use policies, and privacy policies for clients across a range of industries. In addition, I counsel clients on NDAs, non-solicitation/non-competition agreements, employment contracts, and commercial and residential leases.
Prior to opening my own practice, I worked for four years at one of the most prestigious law firms in the world, an appellate litigation firm, the federal government, and one of the country's most renowned government contracts firms. I live in Boulder but represent clients nationwide.
Although I have represented numerous Fortune 500 companies and the Defense Department, my passion is advising startups and small businesses. Like so many of my clients, I am an entrepreneur and have owned and operated three businesses (my law firm and two companies outside the legal field). I understand the needs and concerns of small business owners. I look forward to working with you.
I help clients with: buying and selling commercial properties including multi-family and office projects, subdivisions, retail shopping centers; and negotiating leases for retail and office landlords, retail tenants and office tenants. Over 23 years I've honed my skills by running deals at an Amlaw-100 firm, an elite real estate boutique in Aspen, Colorado and a few highly regarded national firms based in Denver, Colorado, before starting my own solo practice in 2016.
Since 2016 I've been helping my clients with real estate and business deals. I'm a commercial real estate and business expert with a passion for helping clients forge successful ventures in an efficient and understandable manner.
I have been an attorney for 30 years. I am a Colorado native with many years in Alaska. I have a Bachelors in Biology, Chemistry and French, JD from Seattle University and Masters in Environmental Science and Law from Vermont Law School. I have traveled extensively, mostly in Europe, and speak several languages with more or less proficiency. I practiced law in Alaska and Colorado, much of it in remote areas but also large cities. I have taught in an environmental masters program and run large environmental nonprofits and a hot springs resort. I have worked with and run business incubators, a process I love. Empowering people to build their own futures is a passion.

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.
I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.
I got 5 bids within 24h of posting my project. I choose the person who provided the most detailed and relevant intro letter, highlighting their experience relevant to my project. I am very satisfied with the outcome and quality of the two agreements that were produced, they actually far exceed my expectations.
