Your Protection Is Her Priority

Dorcia is an alumna of Loyola College in Maryland, where she was introduced to the concept of "cura personalis" or care for the whole person. For this reason, she takes a holistic approach to client matters. That means she works to understand the business impact of every provision of every deal. Dorcia interned at Shiseido Americas Corporation and the Department of Commerce while studying at Quinnipiac University School of Law in Connecticut. These internships were the beginning of her in-house, technology, and regulatory compliance experience. 

After law school, Dorcia worked for divisions of United Technologies Corporation, where she became familiar with manufacturing and technology operations. Dorcia advised the business on corrective actions required by a Department of Justice consent agreement. She also supported the engineering, program/product, and operations business units by drafting technical assistance and manufacturing license agreements. Now Dorcia combines her corporate experience and legal skills to help enterprises strategize, structure, and negotiate technology deals. She also collaborates with the dynamic corporate law firm, BurgherGray, as of counsel. 

Dorcia currently lives in Connecticut but was born in the Bronx, raised in New Jersey, and learned she is the consummate East Coaster after a few months in California. She is a member of the New York State Bar Association and an ambassador for the Business Council of Westchester. She also serves on the board of the White Plains Bar Association. Dorcia enjoys music, yoga, and golf. Last but not least, Dorcia is a huge fan of Issa Rae and an ardent supporter of the Alzheimer's Association.
