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

Whether you need real estate transaction or commercial collections guidance, a creditor’s perspective or a debtor’s view, or just someone who is sure to be practical and thoughtful in negotiations, Wendy can help you anticipate, prepare for, and be a step ahead of the next challenge.

Wendy is one of the few people in Maine experienced in all aspects of public housing and Section 8 tenant conflicts, knows HUD regulations like the back of her hand, and is well versed in the DHHS Maine Human Rights Commission process as it pertains to Maine housing providers.

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

  • Sorting out landlord-tenant differences relating to leases, contracts, evictions, money collections, mortgage foreclosures, and title insurance
  • Negotiating mortgage workout agreements, contracts, and leases, and resolving creditor and debtor payment conflicts
  • Working with institutional lenders, borrowers, and businesses on documentation and restructuring of transactions, and collection procedures
  • Litigating the Uniform Enforcement of Foreign Judgments Act and the Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act
  • The particularities of perfecting and enforcing security interests in the Uniform Commercial Code
  • Advising banks, small- to medium-business sales forces, commercial and residential landlords, and commercial litigators concerning collection strategies, bounced checks, avoiding bankruptcy, landlord-tenant relations, and more

In her former life, Wendy was:

  • An attorney at Lambert Coffin, and before that, Cope Law Firm
  • In-house counsel at Recoll Management and later at Fleet Bank

When Wendy isn’t working, she is…

Serving as a member of the Falmouth Board of Zoning Appeals. In her spare time, Wendy makes pottery and cooks any recipe she can get her hands on. She also enjoys hiking, biking, kayaking, skiing, and hot yoga.
