About Me

I'm a solo practice lawyer  (which means I will personally handle each client's calls and documents) in PA and NY. I'm a Nationally Certified Guardian with a business background in finance and a BA in Psychology. I'm focused  in the areas of Elder Law including Estate Administration, Estate Planning, Guardianships, VA Benefits, Trusts, Probate, Wills and Powers of Attorney. My primary office is located in Mechanicsburg, PA and I have a second location in Blauvelt NY, but I am  available to travel throughout PA and NY to visit clients who are incapacitated in their homes or facility.
