BIOGRAPHY

I am a member of the firm’s contract support, corporate and transactional, and real estate practice groups. I specialize in providing financial institution services and real estate closings. Over the past 14 years, I represent banks and lenders in loan closing transactions. I represent clients in litigation involving claims of consumer lending and servicing violations, real property title and boundary disputes, property conveyance, zoning, permitting, easements, foreclosure, tax sales, eviction, garnishment, and debt collection. I also provide document drafting, review and negotiation services for corporate entity formation and dissolution, title documents, contracts, commercial contracts, and leases. I help clients develop strategies to manage and mitigate risks and comply with state/federal law while meeting their business objectives.

I earned my Doctorate of Juris Prudence at The University of Texas School of Law as a Texas Leader Scholar, and B.A.’s in Business and Political Science at Southwestern University as a Presidential Scholar.

I am admitted to practice in Georgia, Tennessee, U.S. District Court for the Northern & Middle Districts of Georgia, and the U.S. Court of Appeals. I was nominated to serve as a 2014 Fellow for the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) and served as an LCLD Advocacy Group Leader. I have participated in the National Association of Women & Minority Owned Law Firms (NAMWOLF), the Commercial Law League of America (CLLA), and the GA State Bar’s Real Property Law Section and Minorities in the Profession Committee, and the State Bar’s Annual High School Mock Trial program.
