Lawyer

I hold a bachelor of science in criminal justice from Arizona State University and a juris doctorate from Arizona Summit Law School. Before I became an attorney, I was a paralegal for almost 8 years. But working in a law firm for all those years and 3 years of law school did prepare me for being a business owner for the past 4 years.

As a small business owner, I appreciate that there’s a lot of jargon and paperwork involved in running a successful business. I help other business owners make sure they have a solid legal foundation so they can focus on running their business, instead of dotting i’s and crossing t’s.

I know lawyers can be intimidating and expensive. But for me it is more about sharing my knowledge as a lawyer and as a business owner to help entrepreneurs succeed!
