About Me

I'm a lawyer doing what I love to do - helping families better understand how to manage their future by using proper wills, trusts and asset protection.  I work with all types of clients, from business owners to the elderly to young families.  I enjoy face-to-face interaction with clients to first let them understand what estate planning is and can do for them...then working with other professionals (Insurance, financial advisors, accountants) to give clients the whole package of having an organized life both personally and financially.
