My passion as an attorney is being able to help people. When I help people resolve their legal issues that is the most rewarding aspect of the work I do. I also have an empathetic and compassionate side and I am willing to listen to my clients’ issues, to get a deeper understanding of what they would like to achieve and accomplish.

I have counseled and advised clients on their estate planning needs, prepared estate plans and given estate planning presentations. My goal is to make estate planning as accessible, efficient and streamlined as possible so that individuals, families, and business owners are motivated to express their estate planning goals, and families and business partners do not have to deal with the disastrous fallout from a lack of planning.

I have successfully handled probate cases, assisting fiduciaries with estate administration and assisting families in implementing plans when loved ones pass away.
