It is most satisfying for me to assist companies and individuals in working through what can be a cumbersome and challenging process of obtaining the myriad approvals that are needed in order to proceed with new development. I have a special affinity for and substantial experience in addressing environmental permitting needs for our clients. I learned the ropes in this field as a member of the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office for 14 years. Then, during my eight years as Assistant Commissioner of the Department of Environmental Services, including the last two as Acting Commissioner, I refined my understanding of environmental issues and learned in detail about the permitting process and those in charge of it. That prior experience, coupled with now 13 years of practice in two large New Hampshire firms, has provided a great foundation for my work in environmental permitting, defending DES enforcement actions, and siting energy facilities and other land use development. I take pride in my ability to find solutions to challenging permitting and other environmental issues for our clients.
