About me

I am an elder law attorney. I help seniors and their caregivers manage, qualify for, and pay for healthcare. I make sure seniors are protected and that no one takes advantage of their vulnerability to steal money or property from them. I handle legal issues like Medicaid planning and applications, estate planning and administration, guardianships, probate litigation, and Veterans' Aid and Attendance applications. I find customized solutions for every client's situation.
