My Approach

Every client, every business, every case is different, and the same approach is not right for every matter. I strive to find the best approach for the unique issues of each case so that I can provide the greatest value to my clients. Litigation may be adversarial, but it does not have to be a zero-sum game; there is usually a business solution and I work to be creative and achieve the best outcomes for my clients. For me, the point is not just to “win,” but to find the best, most efficient solution. I am committed to my clients and their businesses, and am invested in solving problems and getting them back to their business as efficiently as I can.

I focus my practice on construction and real estate litigation, though I handle a wide variety of disputes, including shareholder or limited partner disputes, banking and securities law litigation, and general commercial contract matters. In my construction law practice, I have handled contract disputes, construction defect and warranty matters, employment-related issues, mechanic’s liens, and insurance coverage disputes.  In addition, I review and counsel my clients on their various contracts.  My real estate litigation practice includes lease disputes, contract enforcement actions, and I also address and resolve the unique issues that can arise in connection with low-income housing tax credit developments. I have extensive experience at all levels of the litigation process, and represent a wide variety of clients, from Fortune 500 companies to small businesses and individuals. My experience spans a variety of industries, including construction, affordable housing, banking,  and energy, among others.

In addition to my litigation practice, I dedicate time to assisting individuals who need, but cannot afford, legal representation. I have handled a number of pro bono matters over the past several years. Stemming from my work with the Government Benefits Division of the Legal Aid Society of Minneapolis while in law school, I have successfully represented individuals who were denied Medical Assistance and Social Security Disability benefits. In addition, I assisted an individual in receiving a full pardon for a non-violent crime committed in his youth.

Advancing and supporting women in the legal profession is very important to me, and I work within the firm to mentor junior lawyers and coordinate our women’s group.  I also serve on the firm’s Recruiting and Associate Development Committees. Outside the firm, I am active in the Minnesota Mother Attorneys Association and Minnesota Women Lawyers.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two kids, baking and decorating cakes, and getting outdoors.
