Claimed Lawyer Profile

GCEM is a full service law firm practicing in the areas of residential, commercial and development real estate transactions, including drafting and negotiation of real estate contracts and leases, business formation, preparation of wills, probate, and estate planning. I am personally experienced with the Neighborhood Preservation Court in Memphis and can provide advice, counsel, and representation related to this and other state and local issues affecting real estate.

My previous position was as an attorney at West Tennessee Legal Services, the legal aid organization for West Tennessee, where I completed a two year fellowship as an Equal Justice Works/AmeriCorps Elder Justice Fellow.
