About me

Jim is dedicated to providing personalized service to all of his clients and understands that at times probate and trust administration can be a very emotional experience.   As a third generation attorney, he offers a depth of knowledge, experience, and expertise that allows him to present a variety of estate planning options.  He stresses to all clients that estate planning is an ongoing process that may need to change as client’s needs, objectives, family matters and finances change.   He also stays on top of every changing laws and planning tools that could also affect client’s estate plan.
