About Me

I strongly believe in providing clients peace of
mind through planning.  My broad values based estate planning, probate
and trust administration practice has served several thousand clients
over the last 29 years. My qualifications include being
Board Certified in Wills, Trusts and Estates by The Florida Bar.


I welcome the opportunity to work closely with my clients’
professional advisors including financial planners, CPAs, investment and
insurance advisors, and more. This team approach applies to my office
staff as well. Everyone is dedicated to providing excellent and
compassionate service.


I am an
avid Orlando Magic fan and enjoy bicycling, snow skiing, photography
and increasing my computer skills. My wife, Karen A. Reynolds,
and I live in Altamonte Springs. Karen is originally from Jamaica and is a
Critical Care Nurse working in Process Improvement for Florida Hospital.
