Real estate has been the central focus of my legal career for over 13 years. I look forward to using my experience to help you close your transaction.

I began by career in Denver representing institutional lenders in all phases of the lending process and defending their interests in the courtroom when loans went sideways (or upside down). I then spent several years working for a Houston-based oil and gas law firm, preparing drilling and division order title opinions and counseling operators and suppliers on general business matters.

I joined First American’s underwriting team in Kansas City after moving here in 2013 to be closer to family. After three years away from the Company spent working with a local REIT, I rejoined the First American team with tremendous insight into complex real estate transactions. My career has equipped me with a unique skillset and perspective that I enjoy applying in my current role and I look forward to using my experience to help you close your transaction.
