About me

I have been a Certified Specialist in Estate Planning, Probate and Trust Law by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization since 2003.  I truly enjoy what I do. 


I help families prepare a complete esate plan, which includes a revocable living trust to avoid probate and reduce estate taxes, pour-over wills, powers of attorney for finances, advance health care directives and transferring their personal residence into their trust.


Another big part of my practice involves probate and trust administration. After more than 19 years of being in practice, I have a lot of experience with a wide variety of probate and trust administration issues.  My goal is to make the process as easy on the family as possible and try to preserve the family relationships through the work that needs to be done to administer an estate.


My practice is located in Scripps Ranch, very close to the 15 freeway at the Mira Mesa Blvd exit, just West of Lake Miramar.
