About me

I have been practicing law in Massachusetts since 1990.  I came here to go to lawschool - Boston University.  I graduated,  magna cum laude (somewhat to my own surprise) from B.U. and when back, as I had planned, to New York City, but Massachusetts drew me back.    I came back to Massachusetts to work for a firm here, and then, in 1991 I came out on my own as solo practitioner.  For awhile I took whatever came in the door, including real estate, bankruptcy and divorce.  But I soon focused on estate planning.  It has everything I want - property, business, interesting legal questions, and something I hadn't realized the importance of in my practice - interesting people.  My passion is to help people arrange their property to accomplish their own goals.  In the process, I get to learn a lot about those goals, and about the lives and families of my clients.  They are all different, and all wonderful!
