About me

I am an estate planning attorney, working with clients at all stages of their lives - from young families to elders - educating and advising them about the legal documents that are appropriate to their situation and will achieve their goals.  I enjoy helping clients create a plan that is right for them now, and working with them to change and adapt their plan as necessary as time goes on and circumstances change.

Working with my clients' other advisers is an important part of creating an effective estate plan, and helps ensure all tax and financial issues that bear on a client's plan are properly addressed. 

I also assist clients in settling estates after the death of a family member, including assisting with the administration of trusts and the preparation of estate tax returns.

Our firm has been assisting clients with estate planning and related matters for over 20 years.  We work to create and maintain long-term relationships with our clients.  We also help clients connect to other professionals that can assist them.
