I truly enjoy practicing law, and helping clients solve legal issues. When I meet with someone, I make it a point to explain legal issues in an understandable way.

If we are discussing a complex Will or Trust, or maybe a holding company structure for a business, I usually draw a diagram on the whiteboard during our meeting, which helps to clarify the legal structure in a more practical way.

Many clients have told me that they really appreciated the way I was able to make the legal process understandable and "painless" for them.

I am also especially sensitive to the need for caring advice when assisting clients who have experienced the loss of a loved one, and need help with Probate of an estate.

My commitment is to provide legal work of the highest quality: carefully drafted, personalized Wills, Trusts, Contracts, LLC Operating Agreements, etc. My work is focused on each client's unique situation and personal goals. 

Away from the office, I love spending time outdoors, and have a lot of fun with mobile apps and new technology.
