I am a solo practicioner in the area of elder law, probate and estate planning, and guardianships. I practice out of downtown Minneapolis, but I am able to serve the entire state of Minnesota. 


I got into Elder Law because of the increasing difficulty of growing old with grace and dignity. There are so many confusing aspects of growing old.


As a solo practicioner, I am able to take as much time as is necessary to truly understand my clients goals. Then, I put my knowledge and expertise to work to accomplish those goals -- nothing more, nothing less. I do not charge my clients for unnecessary legal work. I am able to provide excellent representation at a very good price. I do not incur the expenses that large law firms require; thus, I am able to save my clients thousands of dollars in unnecessary legal fees. 


I offer free thirty minute consultations. Please feel free to call or email with your questions. Thank you.

Adult child guardianship
Lucas from the very beginning has been very active and responsive in working to help me pursue guardianship of my adult son. While he admitted this was his first such case, since his experience is in elder law, he nevertheless has assisted me with an open mind and heart.
