Planning For Your Peace of Mind. Experienced Estate Planning Litigation and Education Advocacy. Call
I'm a Maryland native, having been a member of the Baltimore Washington community my entire life, except for 3 years in law school at the Pennsylvania State University Dickinson School of Law, Carlisle, Pa. campus. My life has always revolved around family, friends, church and academics of one form or another.
I am the eldest of four children. My Mother, my 2 younger sisters and their families live in Baltimore County, Maryland. My Mom, the youngest of 7 children, grew up on a tobacco farm in Prince Georges County. My Dad, now deceased many years, was a corporate executive. He was born in Queens, New York. My younger brother Danny died unexpectedly at age 27.
My husband Web passed unexpectedly in January 2016. That experience has made me very sensitive to my clients estate planning needs. I make sure my clients understand the estate planning and probate process and that their documents accurately reflect their planning wishes. Losing a loved one is hard enough. It gives me great satisfaction to know I help make sickness and loss of loved ones a little easier to bear by providing my clients complete and accurate documents tailored to their individual needs.
I am Mom to two "twenty something" children. My son Christopher is "finding himself" in Denver, Colorado. Christopher is a Skyline High School, Front Royal, Va. graduate where he was Co-Captain of his varsity soccer team. Christopher is working on playing soccer at the college or professional level.
My daughter, Savannah, lives with me in Annapolis, Md. Savannah will return to college in January with plans to become a special education teacher.
I love meeting new clients, interacting with current clients and facilitating successful resolution of various estate planning, education/special education and related family dynamics issues.
I have many interests and hobbies, including running (which has become "jogging"), biking, swimming and horseback riding. I play a little guitar and I "appreciate" many different music genres. I enjoy travelling. I love to read, write and learn about estate planning, business succession planning, education/special education and motivational issues. I am constantly seeking and implementing ways to improve my legal skills and legal service to my clients and to the community at large.
I have a particular passion for special needs and disability issues, including Special Needs Trusts with strong commitment to protect families and children with special education and special needs issues. My own personal and professional experience includes substantial special education and special needs issues. I am a very proud Mom to my 2 children adopted from St. Petersburg, Russia.
