Besides being Board Certified in Elder Law by the American Bar Association and admitted to practice in front of the U.S. Court of Military Appeals since 1982, I have a Graduate Certification from from the Atlanta Institute of Music and am an Accredited Veteran's Administration Attorney.
I am an Air Force "brat" and former Captain in the U.S. Air Force JAG Corp (Judge Advocate General's Corps).
My geographic practice area is Brevard County and includes Melbourne, Palm Bay, Viera, Suntree, Cocoa Beach and Rockledge. That said, I have clients from around the State of Florida and from around the country.
I have a passion for doing VA Pension Planning for wartime vets (Aid and Attendance) as well as traditional long term asset protection from nursing home expenses, Medicaid, as well as asset protection in estate plannning such as a living trust, durable power of attorney, health care power of attorney, health care surrogate, living will, will, or pre-need (preneed) guardianship designation. We can discuss Do Not Resuscitate Orders. I also have an active probate, guardianship, and trust administration and special needs trust practice.
Since I have studied Okinawan karate and have visited much of Asia, please expect to see relics of my visits to those sites in my conference room. I apologize in advance.
