About me

Elder law is a field that I am genuinely passionate about. I am grateful to have the opportunity to utilize my specialized knowledge and unique perspective to fulfill the diverse needs of my clients. I take pride in my ability to address the legal, financial, health and social situations of my clients and formulate specific plans to accomplish their goals. I manage my cases with a simple and effective approach while ensuring that my clients understand each step along the way. When facing challenges involving elder law and special needs planning issues, having a knowledgeable, trustworthy and skilled attorney in your corner can ease the process tremendously. I offer a wide-range of solutions for those who are facing crisis and those who wish to avoid crisis through proper planning: Elder Law, Fiduciary Litigation, Estate Planning, Special Needs Trusts, Probate & Trust Administration, Guardianship & Conservatorship Matters, Medicaid Planning, Veterans Benefits, Government Benefits Eligibility, Asset Preservation Tactics, Long-Term Care Planning, Medicare Set-Aside (MSA) Arrangements and Lien Resolution. *In the maze of confusion, there is a solution.
