About me

I opened my boutique law firm in 2012 to provide client-specific legal services in the areas of wealth management / estate planning, real property, business matters, and probate, with a primary focus on services for disabled children and adults.


I have a demonstrated commitment to community service and am currently active as a member of the Board of Trustees for the Community Law Program, a charitable organization providing free legal services to those that cannot otherwise afford legal representation.  I am a member of NAMI where I present lectures on proper estate planning and wealth management strategies; I am an active member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys.


I am happily married with three wonderful children, two of whom are my husband's. My family has been touched by autism and Alzheimer's, inspiring my work in the area of special needs law.
