She regularly represented local agencies in court proceedings, including injunctive remedies filed in relation to environmental and land use issues, drafted legislation for fund allocation and coordinated transactional negotiations, including complex cases such as a CERCLA case for the remediation of a Superfund Site involving several local agencies and residents' relocation. She also assisted in drafting the fist Oil Pollution Act Claim presented to the Coast Guard.
