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.
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.
