Name *


I am a compliance attorney who protects companies from the costs of regulatory actions. With broad experience as an in-house attorney, I have a holistic understanding of the legal process and how it applies to business operations. 

With two decades in the legal industry, I  have experience in areas of transactions, regulatory law, compliance, advertising law, environmental law, financial services, product safety law & product recalls in the United States and internationally. 

I received my law degree from the University of Illinois College of Law in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, and my B.A. in Economics from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. My hometown is East Lansing, Michigan, and I am currently located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Half the year I wonder why I live there, and the other half I enjoy the glorious summer cycling, gardening, and walking my two dogs.

Prior to studying law, I was a sales representative in Dallas, Texas for a U.S. industrial lighting manufacturer, working with engineers and contractors on multi-million dollar construction projects.  In Dallas, I learned the meaning of the phrase “all hat, no cattle” and other colorful sayings.
