How I represent clients at Schwabe

As an associate in Schwabe’s business and transactions department, my objective is to help clients pursue their legal interests and obtain favorable results. Whether drafting contracts, conducting legal research, or giving counsel, I maintain a goal-oriented approach with the client’s interests top of mind and treat every matter with the same level of urgency.

A former engineer and project manager, I have developed and sharpened my technical, professional, and project management skills that I leverage in my practice today. One of my biggest passions is to take on challenges and find the most elegant solutions. Prior to Schwabe, I worked at a boutique firm as a Law Clerk, where I wrote a program and protocol that effectively tracked discovery requests and objections and compiled them within minutes.
