What types of legal issues do you help individuals and businesses resolve?
As a member of the Business Law, Real Estate Law, and Estate Planning and Administration teams at Rhoades McKee, I help individuals and businesses alike understand and solve the complex legal issues presented by real estate, tax, and corporate law as well as plan for the future with proper estate and business succession planning.
What skills help you advise the client and achieve the best results or outcomes?
In law school, I worked directly with clients at a low-income tax clinic. This experience provided me the opportunity to develop communication and problem-solving skills that help me focus on a client’s true legal issues and offer resolutions that are suited to their unique circumstances. I was able to assist clients at the clinic while they navigated disputes with the IRS, which often included responding to IRS notices, audits, appeals, collection matters, and federal tax litigation.
How do any of your community interests or activities facilitate how you represent your client?
As a Michigan native, I was excited about the chance to move to Grand Rapids to build a practice and join an engaged and locally-rooted law firm. I understand the impact that local relationships and engagements can have on our community and the profession. To facilitate and develop these relationships, I am already involved in a number of local organizations, including the local bar association and a variety of local alumni associations.
