My practice is devoted to elder law, estate planning and special needs planning. I work with elders and their families in areas of long-term care planning and asset preservation, MassHealth applications and appeals, guardianships and conservatorships, special needs planning and trusts, estate planning, probate administration, and public benefits advocacy. Part of my practice has been devoted to litigation of issues affecting elders, such as contested guardianships and fiduciary litigation.
I served as President of the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (MassNAELA) in 2014, and served as President of the Massachusetts Guardianship Association in 2010 and 2011. I work with my MassNAELA colleagues to protect the rights of seniors and people with special needs through public policy efforts, advocacy, and education.
I am excited to be serving as Chair of NAELA's 2017 Annual Conference Committee, which will be held in Boston and will coincide with our Chapter's 25th anniversary.
