She regularly addresses construction matters involving liquidated damages, change orders, performance and payment bonds, termination of contracts, and mechanics’ liens waivers and releases. She advises clients on the amendments to the Pennsylvania Mechanics’ Lien Law and how the changes affect their construction projects. She is also knowledgeable with Pennsylvania’s State Construction Notices Directory, the Pennsylvania Uniform Construction Code and the International Building Codes. She also has a robust real estate practice focusing on transactions, including the purchase and sale of real estate, commercial leases, including office, shopping center, warehouse and cell tower leases, residential leases, zoning and land development, formation of entities for real estate ownership, business and real estate financing, condominium and planned communities, property assessment appeals, real estate tax exemption requests, and various agricultural real estate matters, including Clean and Green (Act 319), Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP), and agricultural preservation easements.
