About Me

I have offices in Pittsfield and Williamstown, and focus my practice in the areas of estate planning (Wills, Trusts, Medicaid planning, elder law, etc.) and estate administration. I have 26 years of experience guiding families and individuals through difficult decisions and helping them with good tax planning to achieve their goals.
