For over 15 years I have been helping individuals and business navigate a range of legal issues to help them acheive financial success, financial stability or a financial fresh start.
As a Partner at Tully Rinckey PLLC I represent New Yorkers with the preparation of wills, trusts and advanced directives; Medicaid planning; and real estate transactions and leases.
Before joining Tully Rinckey PLLC I was the managing partner at Kelly & Swetz where I focused my practice on wealth management and sset preservation. Prior to that I operated as a solo practitioner practicing real estate law, estate planning and business law.
I frequently speak on wealth management and asset preservation issues. I'm a member of the Erie County Bar Association, Medical Practice Systems and the Wealth Counsel.
