I am the managing partner of The Heritage Law Group. A regional law firm with four offices in the Hampton Roads area offering personalized services.
I personally focus my practice on estate planning, estate, trust and conservatorship administration, fiduciary services, fiduciary litigation, asset protection, wealth preservation, elder law, and business planning. However, our Firm handles a wide range of legal services to meet your needs.
I began my career in Washington, D.C. where I worked on Capitol Hill and with the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom. I have been practicing law in the Hampton Roads area since 2007.
I have advanced my interests in estate planning law and family counselling with extensive education. I earned an L.L.M. (Master of Laws) degree in estate planning and elder law in 2010. I attained my Juris Doctor degree from Case Western Reserve University School of Law in Cleveland, Ohio, where I was an associate editor of the International Law Review. Legal research I completed in that program has been published and used as a teaching aid by professors in law schools. I am also a contributing author for a book on estate planning.
I am a native of Poquoson, Virginia and have lived in the Hampton Roads area for most of my life. I am the past President of the Board of Directors for the Historic Triangle Senior Center. I am a member of the Williamsburg Republican Party and a member of the Republican National Lawyers Association. In addition to my other community interests, I am a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, the Virginia Bar Association and the Williamsburg Kiwanis Club. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my friends, family, and my dachshund, London, working out at the gym and running.
