Lorrie was born in Rochester, New York. After law school, she was associated with a Rochester law firm (now known as Boylan Code) where she concentrated her practice in litigation and residential real estate. She later moved to Washington, DC with her husband Steve. There, she worked as an attorney for the United States government and for a private commercial real estate law firm.

Lorrie and Steve returned to Rochester in 1990. Shortly thereafter, their only child Anne was born. Until 1995, Lorrie operated a small part-time general law practice while happily being a “mostly-stay-at-home” mother and wife. Now, Lorrie manages the technical, business, and personnel aspects of our firm and keeps our “behind the scenes” running smoothly.

Lorrie lives in Greece with her husband Steve and their dog. Their only daughter, Anne, joined the firm in 2020. Lorrie enjoys “home” projects, collecting antique Fiestaware, gardening, and holiday baking.
