Here’s why you’ll enjoy working with her.

Beth has an eye for the big picture and the details. A diligent, high-energy member of the real estate team, Beth works tirelessly to help her clients find creative solutions to a variety of commercial and residential real estate challenges.

Before joining Bernstein Shur, Beth served as a law clerk at the New Hampshire Supreme and District courts, where she gained invaluable insight into the inner workings of the judicial system and effective advocacy. And when it comes to green-energy development projects, it’s her technical expertise that truly sets her apart: As an undergraduate chemistry major who understands the science behind renewable energy generation and distribution, she’s particularly adept at anticipating—and responding to—her clients’ needs in that sector.

But that’s not all. Beth is also very experienced in:

  • Purchase and sale transactions, leasing, and charitable transfers
  • Subdivision and condominium development
  • Title matters
  • Financing and refinancing of subsidized housing projects
  • Commercial lending
  • Settling boundary disputes

In her former life, Beth was:

  • Judicial Intern to the Honorable Joseph N. Laplante of the US District Court for the District of New Hampshire
  • Judicial Intern to the Honorable James P. Bassett of the Supreme Court of New Hampshire
  • Consultant in the public utilities sector

When Beth isn’t working, she is…

In the classroom with NALP/Street Law Legal Diversity Pipeline Program, teaching local high school students about the law and supporting the pursuit of their own legal careers. Otherwise, she’s outpacing other runners in Kennebunk, Maine: Beth’s a lifelong runner who placed third in the national pentathlon in high school, qualified for the Olympic trials in the 400 meter hurdles, and ran the lead leg of Dartmouth’s school record-breaking 4×400 meter relay team. If she’s not wearing her running shoes, she’s likely reading a novel, trying a new recipe, or spending time with her dogs.
