Specialties

I am a member at BrownWinick, practicing primarily in the business transactional area, with an emphasis in real estate and health care transactions.  I also support other practice groups with matters affecting real estate, including mergers and acquisitions and project development. My health care practice involves health care facility acquisitions and financing, with an emphasis in nursing and related long term care facilities.

Each transaction is different and involves unique challenges.  My role as a lawyer is to complete your transaction on an economical and efficient basis.

I have been selected for inclusion in Best Lawyers® for my work in the areas of Health Care Law and Real Estate Law.  I am a member of the American Health Lawyers Association, Iowa Commercial Real Estate Association, the Iowa State Bar Association and the Polk County Bar Association.
