About Maureen

Learn Maureen’s areas of practice.

I initially became interested in the field of Elder Law when my grandmother entered a nursing home while I was in law school. By living through the emotional and financial turmoil that every family experiences when a loved one goes through this stage of life, I learned first hand how a passionate, caring attorney can be a tremendous help. Through my practice of law, I strive to help families every day and uphold the dignity of my elder clients.
