I help clients anticipate legal and tax issues before they arise, or if the issues have already arisen, help them resolve the issues in an efficient and cost effective way. From estate planning and probate and trust administration to business entity formation and day-to-day counseling, I can assist you with your legal needs.
I strive to set myself apart from many other attorneys by providing my clients with the personalized service they deserve. This means that when you call my office, you will speak with me, or if I am not available, that I will return your call and address your needs at my earliest convenience. It also means that you will meet with me during your initial consultation and in any follow up meetings.
Thank you for taking the time to review my Avvo profile. I hope to have an opportunity to serve you.
