About Me

I am licensed in both Kentucky and Indiana and actively practice in both states. Prior to focusing on estate planning and elder law, I had an extensive background in litigation, having handled cases in trials, and on appeal, in both states. This background allows me to  help fully protect my client's interests when necessary.
