Alicia focuses her practice on improving clients’ business operations and financial stability.  She represents businesses, individuals, financial institutions, estates, and trusts in obtaining financing, resolving commercial disputes, and selling, purchasing, and/or recovering assets.  To accomplish this, she determines the most efficient and effective means of achieving her clients’ goals, whether it is litigating civil suits in state, federal, or bankruptcy courts; identifying potential investors or lenders to effectuate a reorganization or liquidation; or negotiating settlements or transactions beneficial to clients.

Alicia approaches each day with her clients’ goals in mind.  She practices law to help people and businesses navigate their way through what can be an overwhelming and confusing field that is the legal system.  Alicia understands that for each client, our efforts are of high, if not critical, importance.

When she isn’t working, Alicia enjoys reading, distance running, traveling, and – when she has time – binge-watching the newest shows on Netflix and Amazon Prime.

Alicia’s practice includes representing corporate and individual debtors in their Chapter 7 and 11 bankruptcy cases, protecting the rights and remedies of secured and unsecured creditors in Chapter 7, 11, and 13 bankruptcy cases, and litigating commercial disputes on behalf of business owners, fiduciaries, and bankruptcy trustees.

Alicia’s most notable cases include:

  • A favorable Pennsylvania Supreme Court decision on behalf of a mortgage lender finding that a mortgagor was not entitled to an award of attorney’s fees because the mortgagor did not commence an action under Pennsylvania’s Act 6 asserting a violation under its provisions. Bayview Loan Servicing, LLC v. Lindsay, 646 Pa. 381 (2018);
  • Prosecuting claims of legal malpractice, fraud, conversion, and breach of fiduciary duty on behalf of an estate administrator and trustee against their former attorneys, resulting in a favorable settlement;
  • Obtaining a bankruptcy court decision on behalf of a commercial mortgage lender designating the mortgagor-debtors as “single asset real estate” debtors, leading to prompt stay relief or dismissal allowing the lender to pursue available remedies; and
  • Defending a real estate development firm against claims of breach of contract and fraudulent inducement by a home builder.

Before joining Obermayer, Alicia was an attorney at a southern New Jersey law firm in their bankruptcy and commercial litigation departments.
