Competent, compassionate and attentive legal representation!Experienced Elder Law attorney providing compassionate, competent & attentive legal representation!We strive to turn each client meeting into a long term relationship! Let our family help yours!
Originally from Wisconsin, I was raised in Venice, Florida since I was 9 years old and am a product of the Pine View School and Venice High School. After meeting my wife, who is also a Venice native, in San Francisco, we decided to move home and start our family. We have two boys, ages 7 and 5.
I limit my practice to Elder Law, Estate Planning, Probate & Trust Administration and residential Real Estate transactions. I have a passion for assisting my clients overcome their issues and guide them through challenging times. I consider it a privilege when someone entrusts me with their legal matter and I work hard to establish a relationship with each one of my clients that I hope will last a lifetime.
I am a good person and a good attorney. However, we cannot be experts in everything. If I am not the right person to handle your matter, I will tell you at the outset and I will also point you in the direction of someone who is. I look forward to us meeting soon!
