Areas of Practice

Corporate and Business

We cater to a broad range of business clientele, from entrepreneurs and start-ups to mid-level, closely held companies.  There are critical decisions to be made at both the inception and conclusion of a business, and those decisions require qualified advice.

Estate Planning

We provide you the tools necessary to secure and protect your hard-earned business or investments.  We advise you in the preservation of your wealth for subsequent generations.  Each particular asset – whether it is a family business, partnership interest, family residence – is different, and we understand each unique situation.

Bank & Finance

We represent clients in regulatory and transactional matters involving banks and non-bank financial institutions such as hedge funds, loan workouts and restructurings, debt and equity offerings, state and federal regulatory compliance, and mergers and acquisitions.

Trust Administration

The firm provides individualized attention to a new trustee in the performance of his or her duties.  We assists a trustee or executor in creating the very transparency that the beneficiaries seek, annual accounting, fiduciary tax returns, and reports to beneficiaries.


With more than 20 years of experience, the lawyers of GLG represent established professionals (independent producers, agents and managers), creative talent (writers, directors and performers) and rights owners in the global, ‘transmedia’ marketplace. 

Employment Law

We represents private and public sector employees and employers in a wide variety of employment law cases. We can provide practical advice and aggressive representation to efficiently address or resolve employment law matters.


I have been working with Denise for the past 10 years. As the CFO of a family run engineering firm I am constantly in need of Denise’s legal advice. She breaks down legal terms with clear explanations. In addition to relying on Denise on a regular basis, her staff is impeccable and very efficient. I admire her firm’s devotion to their clients.
