I started this firm in 2015, after nearly two decades in healthcare and nursing, and after two years of general law practice. I recognized a vacuum of information about estate planning in the everyday world, and particularly in healthcare institutions and at the bedside. All too often, decisions were made in the stress of the moment, if at all. I also realized that people weren't planning to let the law decide how to handle their affairs, and they didn't choose to neglect those very important things, just as they weren't planning on an accident or illness. But by failing to plan ahead, these people seemingly were planning to fail.
I've spent years at the bedside in acute and critical care settings, caring for and serving people through difficult times and often at the ends of their lives. I understand that, fundamentally, we all want to protect those we love, even if we cannot be with them and even after we die. I've learned that part of that protection, part of being able to stay with them after you're gone, is to make sure that all the things you've worked to provide them will last and will be handled the way you want.
I graduated from Syracuse University College of Law in 2013, where I was named on the Dean's List, researched and wrote on human rights issues for Impunity Watch, earned several academic awards, served in the Elder Law Clinic, and served as president of the Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies.
I am admitted to the New York State Bar, and is a member of the American Bar Association, the New York State Bar Association, Onondaga County Bar Association, The American Association of Nurse Attorneys, Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society, Golden Key International Honour Society, Alpha Sigma Lambda National Honor Society, Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity, the Central New York Estate Planning Council, and proudly serve on the Greater Baldwinsville Ambulance Corps Board of Directors.
