Serena is fascinated with businesses—how they operate, how they grow, and how a smart legal strategy can help facilitate their success. Whether it’s business law, succession planning, or a commercial lending transaction, she is both a resource and an advocate for her clients. Detail-oriented and a savvy negotiator, Serena focuses on helping all parties involved reach a satisfying outcome. She also understands the uncertainty clients go through when faced with legal issues. She thoughtfully drafts a course of action tailored to their needs and helps prepare them for what’s next. This greatly alleviates the fear of the unknown and gives her clients the peace of mind they desire.
Serena is an avid student of history and current events, and has an undergraduate degree in political science. Serena’s words to live by are from a quintessential American, Teddy Roosevelt: “Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.”
