People who know me know that before I was an attorney, I was a building contractor because, well, I tell them. All the time.
I really enjoyed building things. There is nothing more rewarding that standing on the curb and looking at a home or other structure that you were a part in the making. For certain, the structures that I was a part in the making were not on the scale of the Hoover Dam, but they were well built and good looking.
Sometimes I wonder why I quit building and decided to go to law school. Then, I remind myself that I had this grand plan that I could combine my skills as a builder and business person with the practice of law. For the most part, it’s worked out. Not a huge amount of construction law, but lots of zoning and homeowners associations issues. Until now.
I am adding to my law practice alternative dispute resolution services in the practice areas of construction disputes, homeowners associations, commercial owners associations, and commercial landlord-tenant matters. I am really excited by this new development.
Of course, I will continue with my practice area of legal research and writing, and taxation research and writing. I guess I want it all!
