I have been an Associate Attorney with the Finney Law Firm since 2016. Prior to joining the Finney Law Firm, I served as a law clerk for five years while completing my undergraduate and law degrees. I have represented clients in complex commercial, real estate, and tort litigation and, through that experience, discovered my genuine interest in, ironically, keeping clients (and their businesses) out of litigation. My practice is now focused on commercial and residential real estate transactions and business formation.
In my practice, my primary objective is to help set my clients up for success through quality drafting, risk assessment/management, thoughtful review, and proven negotiation strategies. I understand the impact that legal disputes can have on my clients’ lives and businesses and am committed to working alongside them to develop individualized and creative solutions to each of their legal challenges. I often find that my background in real-estate and commercial litigation gives me a unique perspective from which to advise clients as to the potential implications and outcomes of their various dealings, which, in turn, allows my clients to focus on their lives and businesses, while I look out for their legal interests.
In addition to my transactional practice, I also represent real estate professionals in quasi-litigation matters before the Ohio Division of Real Estate, Cincinnati Board of Realtors, and Southern Ohio Association of Realtors and help clients dispute their property valuation and real estate taxes with the Board of Revision and/or Board of Tax Appeals.
I earned my Bachelor’s Degree summa cum laude from the University of Kentucky in 2013 and my J.D. magna cum laude from the Salmon P. Chase College of Law in 2016. During law school, I served on the Editorial Board for the Northern Kentucky University Law Review and had one of my articles published. I now enjoy getting to know local law students by heading our firm’s summer law clerk recruitment and programming initiatives.
Outside of the office, I enjoy cooking, traveling, reading, hiking, and hanging out with my husband and our two German Shepherds, Sasha and Griff.
