My work with clients is concentrated in the areas of probate litigation, general commercial litigation, and insurance defense. I help our clients find cost-effective solutions to their legal matters. Serving on the New Hampshire Bar Association’s Board of Governors and Committee on Cooperation With the Courts, and previously as president of the Manchester Bar Association, has helped me develop meaningful relationships with many lawyers in the state and more effectively represent our firm’s clients.  


I represent individuals, businesses, and government entities in probate matters, contract disputes, premises liability claims, and trespass claims, among other matters. My experience also includes commercial and residential lease disputes, and I have represented landlords and tenants in many cases involving a broad range of issues. 

For the past several years I have served on the Palace Theatre Community Advisory Board, and I am a 2011 graduate of the Leadership Greater Manchester program. When I am not practicing law, I enjoy hiking, skiing, and spending time with my family.
