About Amy

I grew up in the suburbs of Buffalo, New York.  I graduated from University of Hartford in West Hartford, Connecticut.  After college, I worked in Manhattan in the fashion industry and the outplacement field.  I graduated from St. John’s University Law School in 1996.  I practiced real estate law and commercial litigation for small and mid-sized New York firms.  In 2006, I opened my own practice in Westchester County, New York focusing on business law, real estate and wills and estate planning.  In 2012, I moved with my family to Indiana.  I was admitted to the Indiana Bar in January 2014.  I look forward to many happy years of practicing law in the Hoosier State.

I am licensed to practice law in Indiana and New York State.

Will, Trusts & Advanced Directives

Whether you are a parent with young children or an older adult, it is important that you have basic estate planning documents in place.  Life is unpredictable and there is no guarantee that we will be here tomorrow.  Without a plan, in many instances, Indiana law controls and the result may not be what you would have chosen for your family!

I absolutely love working with families and seniors!!  I am committed to making estate planning convenient and affordable for my clients.  I am willing to meet you at your home, or in a hospital, nursing home or assisted living facility.  I enjoy sitting and listening to my clients and providing them with the right information so they can make decisions that are best for them.  Most importantly, I take the time to explain legal documents so that my clients know what they are signing!

I provide Indiana families with basic estate planning services at flat, affordable rates.

I would love to work with you and your family!

Having an estate plan in place is a gift you give to your family.  It makes things easy for your loved ones and gives you peace of mind.  The best time to plan is NOW while you’re healthy and have the mental capacity to do so!

Commercial Real Estate

One of the first things I noticed upon moving to Indiana is that it is exploding with opportunities for commercial real estate.  New buildings and businesses are popping up everywhere!

Are you a commercial landlord or prospective tenant seeking space in a commercial building or shopping center?

I have negotiated complex commercial leases for businesses who lease space with major Manhattan commercial landlords.  I have also represented commercial landlords in litigation cases against commercial tenants who violated their leases.  My commercial litigation and real estate background allows me to bring a unique perspective and litigator's eye to all leases I review and negotiate.  I am excited to bring this experience to the Hoosier state.

If you are a commercial landlord seeking an experienced attorney to negotiate your lease or a commercial tenant seeking representation in securing a lease, I would be happy to work with you.

My hourly rate is reasonable and it may be possible to work out a flat fee arrangement.

Indiana is a great place to do business!

Business Law

Business PeopleContract Form

It is an exciting time to live in Indiana because business opportunities abound! I am thrilled to bring my experience to the Hoosier State.

I spent a good portion of my legal career practicing commercial litigation.  Beginning in 2006, I transferred my commercial litigation experience to the transactional side serving as General Counsel to Missy Farren & Associates, Ltd., a leading Manhattan public relations and marketing firm.  I handle sophisticated business contracts with some of the world’s leading retailers, luxury hotel chains, entertainment companies, clothing manufacturers, sports figures, cosmetic companies, wineries and travel destinations.

Are you starting a business?  Do you have a business issue that needs to be addressed or a contract that you need drafted or negotiated?  I would be happy to discuss it with you.  I work with both small and large businesses.

My hourly rate is reasonable and it may be possible to work out a flat fee arrangement.
