Practice areas

I am the managing partner for my firm and I focus my practice on estate planning, as well as estate and trust administration and probate.  I provide creative, cutting-edge estate, tax, and business planning advice to business owners and other wealthy individuals, and am a frequent speaker and author on various estate planning topics. I am board certified in Wills, Trusts and Estates by the Florida Bar Association.

I began my professional career as a Certified Public Accountant. After switching to the practice of law and seeing the ineffectiveness and inefficiency of traditional planning methods, I endeavored to find a better way to assist my clients with estate, tax and business planning. As an estate planning attorney, I developed a model designed to provide clients with comprehensive, personalized estate, tax and business succession plans that withstand the test of time.
