Meet the Lawyer

Before founding my own law firm in 2009, I worked at a boutique law firm that served only clients in the construction industry. I have a history of successfully resolving mechanic’s lien claims and breach of contract claims in Illinois on behalf of lenders, owners, developers, contractors and subcontractors.

I graduated magna cum laude from the University of Illinois College of Law in 2003. After graduation, I worked as an associate at a large law firm in Chicago in commercial litigation on class actions, deceptive business practice and antitrust litigation.

My experience includes the successful defense of a lender against $9 million claim for a mechanic’s lien, breach of contract and delay damages brought by a general contractor on a large condominium project near Soldier Field.

I am admitted to practice in the state of Illinois, the Northern District of Illinois and the Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois.
