About me

I engage in a Wealth Care Practice. Specific services include basic and advanced trust planning; trust estate settlement; probate estates; trust beneficiary advocacy and representation; asset protection; business organization; business succession planning; and pre-marital planning.


My goal is to make creating a Wealth Care and Estate Plan the first step in a relationship that is satisfying and unlike a client's experience with any other lawyer.


Specialties Since 1993, I have created or updated more than 4500 living trust agreements and settled hundreds of trust estates.
