For the entirety of both my personal and professional lives, I have been immersed in the construction industry. Raised by a builder and developer, I channeled my experiences and knowledge into my education where I received an undergraduate degree in the field of architecture and design. Following graduation, I worked for an architecture firm before deciding to go to law school. I regularly implement my real-life, first-hand knowledge and skills from the design and construction industry into the representation of my clients.
My background allows me to be more than someone who is just claiming to be a "construction lawyer." I know where my clients come from, what they are dealing with, and the pressures they are under. I can look at the drawings and comprehend what my clients are saying. I can meet my clients at the jobsite and know what I am looking at without them having to spend time interpreting or explaining. My clients should never feel like I do not understand their world – I consider it my job to do just that. I talk their talk. Not the other way around.
