I am a tax attorney specializing in elder law, estate planning and estates and trusts. Prior to becoming a lawyer, I was a family counselor and social worker in the drug and alcohol treatment field. I believe that this background has enabled me to work more effectively and empathetically with families in crisis facing long term care committments or issues after the death of a loved one.

Probate is the legal process used to carry out a person's will after their death; a probate attorney advises you on how to perform the steps in the process. In general, once you have identified and collected the dead person's belongings, including their money, property, and other assets, you pay the person's debts and taxes. Once all debts have been paid, you distribute their money and property according to the language of the will. If there is no will, the laws of the state where the dead person lived control how the property is distributed. A probate attorney helps you plan what happens to your property when you die, as they can probate wills and act as your probate court estate representative. A probate attorney also represents family members and beneficiaries wishing to challenge wills.
