Practice areas
  1. Elder law
    45%
    The term Elder Law refers to the client, rather than the area of practice. The elderly client has unique financial, physical and emotional concerns that demand the best advice and lasting solutions. Whether it's planning for incapacity or stepping in at a time of crisis, assets need to be protected, the best healthcare must be fought for, financial decisions need to be managed and government benefits like Medicaid have to be maximized. Getting everything in order brings great peace of mind.

  2. Estate planning
    45%
    Whether your are middle class or a multi-millionaire, keeping your last will and testament and other related documents up to date is the responsible thing to do for yourself and your family. Not having these documents at all is alarming at best. There are many important issues that simply need to be addressed. Younger clients have concerns regarding their minor children, those in a second marriage have to balance concerns of two families and affluent clients' issues may involve estate taxes.

  3. Business
    10%
    With the benefit of owning your own business comes the constant burden and responsibility of making well-informed, sensible and profitable decisions - almost on a daily basis.
