About Me

What do you enjoy about the work you do?
I help clients develop and implement solutions to environmental regulations that are both legally defensible and economically sustainable. I also assist my clients in defending their regulatory compliance programs against challenges by regulatory agencies and environmental groups.
What is your area of expertise?
I am an Environmental and Land Use Attorney focusing on renewable energy, infrastructure and development projects. I like to help my clients build things including airports, solar farms, hospitals, wind projects, university housing, military housing, and residential developments. I help my clients get from raw land to certificates of occupancy by avoiding the pitfalls of various environmental and land use regulations including endangered species, water quality, contaminated soils, major use permits, NEPA and CEQA.
