Summary

I have practiced corporate and business law since admission to the New York State Bar in 1990. I received my J.D., cum laude, from the State University of New York at Buffalo Law School and my B.A. in economics and political science from Canisius College, magna cum laude. Recently, in continuing my education, I have successfully completed my Mini-M.B.A. Certificate through Canisius College. I have been with the firm for over twenty-seven years. In addition to managing the firm, I am the head of HoganWillig's Corporate & Business Law Department. I assist clients with business formations (sole proprietorship, partnership, corporations, and limited liability companies), acquisitions, sales or dissolutions, as well as the preparation of any commercial document/contract, ranging from an employment agreement to a lease. I counsel non-for-profit organizations on nonprofit law and governance, obtaining and maintaining tax-exempt status and 501(c) classifications. I provide practical strategies attuned to the unique needs of each client. I also frequently advise clients in Landlord/Tenant matters and have presented a number of seminars in this area of law. I ounsels individuals with bankruptcy issues as well (Chapter 7 and Chapter 13) and assist many creditors with protecting their rights in bankruptcy. I am able to provide assistance to creditors with their general collection needs as well as provide troubled businesses advice and counsel. Additionally, I oversee the representation of an automobile lender statewide. In partnership with our Litigation Department, I engage in civil litigation in all courts in Western New York with regard to commercial issues such as breach of contract, fraud, collections, foreclosure and business disputes. In addition, I coordinate the firm's per diem assistance to law firms and attorneys outside the area.
