Commercial Leasing Law



Jo Ann has been a leasing lawyer for over twenty years.  

She has lived all over the United States including Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Vermont, New Hampshire, New York City, San Francisco, Washington, D.C. and now scenic Truckee, California.  She enjoys reading, travel, art, architecture, hiking, her dogs and kids (not necessarily in that order).  Jo Ann is licensed to practice in the states of California and Nevada.

Jo Ann has resumed her study of the Spanish language following her initial studies in Puebla and San Luis Potosí, México many years ago.  She is actively seeking to learn about the businesses of Mexican clients with commercial real estate leasing needs in the United States.

Jo Ann is also a passionate advocate for the advancement of women in the professions, in particular, in the world of commercial real estate.  In that regard, she is active in the National Association of Women Lawyers and the California State Bar Real Property Law Section.

She is also passionate about the humane treatment of animals and has volunteered at the Humane Society of Tahoe-Truckee for the past several years.
