About Me

I have  been very fortunate to work with some of the finest estate planners and litigators in northern Illinois. I have experience in the difficult emotional environment that often surrounds families in crisis.


I serve clients in the area of ElderLaw, including any related litigation such as guardianships, financial abuse of elders, and estate administration. I am fluent in Spanish and am often sought out by the Spanish-speaking community for assistance.

I spent all of my childhood in northern Illinois; nonetheless, I have had the opportunity to study languages and cultures in various countries from Papua New Guinea to the Czech Republic. I  have also studied in Mexico, Spain, Costa Rica, and Guatemala. I have taught Spanish at both the junior high and high school level in New Jersey.


Languages Spoken: English, Spanish
