About Me

I was in the private practice of law in the metropolitan Kansas City area until 1999. My practice included business litigation; commercial real estate transactions, including construction and finance; corporation, partnership and business transactions; and representation of real estate brokers and agents, including litigation of professional liability claims.

I am a member of the Kansas and Missouri bars, as well as the federal courts in both states.
