About Me

In addition to being a board certified elder law attorney, I am a former nursing home social worker and a military veteran.  That background has been incredibly beneficial to me as I serve my clients. 


On a personal note, I am married and have grown children.  With my free time, I recently took up walking and running.  I completed a full marathon (26.2 miles) in January 2007 and, since then have completed several half marathons.  Now I usually have a race on the horizon.
