Patricia graduated from the Florida State University College of Law in 1990. She practiced Regulatory Law for three years, and in 1993 she became in-house counsel and then general counsel of a telecommunications company. Since the sale of that company in 2001, she has acted as either in-house general counsel or as outside “virtual” general counsel for a number of small and medium sized businesses.
Patricia focuses primarily on business and corporate law. She has spent most of her legal career within the corporate environment, gaining the experience necessary to understand and address the myriad of legal issues and challenges facing businesses every day. She firmly believes that her hands-on business experience is a valuable asset when advising her business clients.
Patricia advises clients regarding all business matters such as starting a business, formalizing processes and documentation, negotiating complex contracts, buying or selling assets, employee and human resources, and winding down a business. She can advise her client’s regarding their legal needs – including identifying legal issues about which clients are often unaware, so that her clients can focus on running their business.
Patricia is licensed to practice law in Florida and Washington State.
