About Koral

What types of legal issues do you help individuals and businesses resolve?

I concentrate my legal practice in helping businesses, growers, and food manufacturers navigate the myriad of issues surrounding environmental and food law. As such, I help clients comply with the necessary real estate laws, environmental disclosures, food labeling requirements, manufacturing and distribution laws.

What sets you apart from other lawyers in your practice field?

Environmental law is my passion. I have been studying the food system since I was in high school, and I earned my J.D. and Master of Food and Agriculture Law & Policy degrees from the top environmental law school in the country. While at Vermont Law School, I studied the regulation of color additives, labeling and misbranding, the farm bill, animal welfare issues, and national environmental statutes. I worked with other clinic students to create an on-line toolkit to aid farmers in developing succession plans. Over the course of two consecutive semesters in Washington, D.C., I drafted a petition requesting the FDA delist carcinogenic color additives for use in food and drugs and legislation to revamp poultry litter management programs to improve water quality in the Chesapeake Bay.

I graduated from the University of Michigan in the top one percent of graduates in the United States. My background in political science and ability to speak Spanish are assets that allow me to help others.

How do any of your community interests or activities facilitate how you represent your client?

Beyond the law, I have a deep interest in local art, museums, history, and health. I shop, eat, read, and practice yoga locally. Regardless of the numerous zip codes that I have called home, I have learned that living an engaged life and making contributions to my community helps me understand and serve others better. I have learned quickly the value of not limiting my organizational participation to that of my career.
