About me

I do not view estate planning as planning for death, but rather as planning for living. As such, I enjoy working with clients who want to focus on providing for their families in a unique and tax-efficient manner. Therefore, I do not use a “cookie-cutter” approach to practicing law; I give my clients the time that they need to create a special plan for their loved ones.

I am blessed to have a wonderful wife and two children.  When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, as well as playing golf and freshwater fishing.
