    I know Barbara through a national organization of estate planning and elder law professionals. She is a solid contributor to the group who always provides thoughtful and valuable advice and feedback to younger lawyers who don't have her experience and education background. I would recommend Barbara to anyone in need of a qualify estate planning or elder law attorney.
