Maureen has been practicing local government law for over three decades, which still surprises her to read in black and white. She believes strongly that the attorney-client relationship should be collaborative and friendly and she works hard as part of the team to help her clients reach their policy goals and to effectively manage and operate the city/town/district.
Maureen loves the variety and often the novelty of issues that a local government practice involves. Over the years, she has advised on zoning and land use planning, financial incentives, elections, taxation and revenue, real property, complex private/public partnership contracts, code enforcement, construction, marijuana and liquor licensing, utility operations, and municipal prosecution.
Maureen lives in Colorado Springs and likes to spend her time hanging with her husband in her now empty nest, hiking, traveling, reading, gardening, skiing, and trying to play better tennis and golf. Because Maureen believes so strongly in the power of local government to effect change, she also volunteers in Colorado Springs as chair (2022-2023) of the Colorado Springs Urban Renewal Authority and on several not-for-profit boards.
