About Me

Concentrating on Estate Planning, Probate/Trust Administration, and Elder Law, or firm helps families plan for life, deal with death, preserve wealth, and protect inheritances.  Our clients engage us when planning for the two most important aspects of their lives:  everything they own and everyone they love.


I grew up in northeast Iowa.  Upon graduating from the University of Denver, College of Law in 2000, I moved to Seattle, Washington and then to Phoenix, Arizona.  In 2008 my family returned to the family environment Iowa provides.


My practice focuses on Estate Planning, Probate/Trust Administration and Elder Law. I often lecture to the public and to professional groups on topics such as The Top Ten Estate Planning Mistakes; What is Probate? How to Avoid; Asset Protection Planning for Iowa Retirees; Legal Issues Affecting Iowa Seniors; and Understanding VA pension Benefits. I am a VA Accredited Attorney.
