About Me

I have spent 42 years advising clients on their estate planning matters. This includes drafting wills trusts, power of attorney forms for health care and for financial matters. Once completed, the clients have expressed having "peace of mind" knowing they have planned for the proper disposition of their estate by avoiding probate and eliminating taxes, where possible.

As a result of many years of experience I am able to explain the complicated legal system in easy to understand lay-man's language.

Call to schedule a free no obligation initial consultation at our new Munster, Indiana office. You have nothing to lose and peace of mind to gain.
