Overview

With a passion for service, Anita represents clients in complex commercial disputes.

Inspired by an immigration attorney who assisted her family when she was a child, Anita sees the practice of law as a means to serve people and find solutions to their problems. All law is personal for her: she knows the corporations she defends are made up of people who depend on their success.

Anita focuses her practice on clients in the technology, manufacturing and transportation industries. She frequently represents clients in breach of contract cases involving commercial agreements, contract disputes, UCC secured transactions and other commercial litigation matters in both state and federal courts. Anita has worked extensively with creditor clients, including large banks and financial institutions, as well as a variety of global and Fortune 500 companies. She is readily accustomed to overseeing a high-volume docket across a variety of industries, while working closely with clients to understand their litigation expectations and business goals.

Anita was first drawn to litigation as a law student in a mediation-focused clinic, where she quickly realized how much she enjoyed conflict resolution and helping opposing parties find common ground. She has built a reputation for working directly with all parties to a case to find practical solutions—as well as a reputation for listening closely to clients. Anita endeavors to understand a client’s expectations and business goals, and she’s known as a practical attorney who ensures that litigation strategy fits clients’ needs.
