I am a third-generation wills, trusts and estates attorney at Petrie & Stocking S.C., a 115+ year old law firm serving families and small businesses throughout southeastern Wisconsin. Our firm places a strong emphasis on integrity, client service, teamwork, and professionalism. I work with individuals and families to help them create flexible estate plans to ensure that their loved ones are protected and their assets are administered as efficiently as possible upon death or disability. I provide legal advice to personal representatives in the administration of probate estates, and to trustees and guardians. I am frequently appointed by the Milwaukee County Probate Court to serve as guardian ad litem in guardianship and probate matters, representing the best interests of vulnerable adults and minors, and I am appointed as personal representative, guardian and/or trustee in cases where there is no family member willing or able to serve. In the near future, I intend to obtain certification to serve as a mediator in contested guardianship, probate and trust cases.
