About Me

Estate Planning, Trust and Probate




I'm a native Californian, and I became an attorney in 1998 after a career in public service and information technology.   I also spent my "non-working" hours as an actor throughout northern California and Nevada.  I began working in estate planning a few years into my career. 


I have lived in Los Angeles since 2005, where I have had the privilege of working with attorneys in taxation, wealth management, trust and estate planning and probate.


I provide personalized estate plans of enduring quality at an affordable price.  If you're reading this, whether you've thought about it or not, it's more than likely that you need an estate plan.
