About Michael

Learn Michael’s areas of practice.

Our firm handles many types of cases, but I like helping people to get their affairs in order (wills, trusts, powers of attorney, living wills). I also like helping people to navigate the probate system (administration of estates, guardianships, and conservatorships.) If I can't help, I try to point people in the right direction.
