About me

I honestly believe that I was born to be a caretaker. In looking back at all the possible choices a law school graduate has when deciding what type of law to practice, it seems that becoming and Elder Law Attorney was inevitable for me. The legal issues that affect the senior and disabled populations are a natural draw, and it’s where I’ve made my home. Of particular interest are the programs available within the Medicaid system.


Although I primarily see clients that are dealing with long term care issues, I also see a number of clients that are either newly disabled, or have been disabled for as long as they can remember. Both are often struggling with the medical problems related to their injuries, and lack of real options for treatment or care. After practicing in this area for over 18 years, I have become intimate with the madness that is the Medicaid system. However, there is a method to the madness, and I strive to find the right path for each client.


Unfortunately, many of the problems arise from a denial or termination of Medicaid benefits. Since this is generally the only possible pay-source for medical treatment and long term care, a denial or termination can be life-threatening. These are the battles I’ve picked - the ones that very few attorneys ever take on.

Whether it's crisis planning, or planning to avoid it, my goal is always to educate my clients on their options and help them choose what's best for them.
