About me

I am very passionate about helping my clients plan to avoid or fight the Long-Term-care (LTC) bullies and/or fires in their lives. You see as a young child I was influenced negatively by a bully and positively by a fire-fighting family. 


In kindergarten, I was bullied by a classmate.  I did not fight back because I was taught to walk away.  After shooting me with a BB Gun, however, I was given permission to stand-up to the bully.  I have been helping others stand-up to their actual or perceived LTC bullies for years.


Again, as a young child, I wanted to be a fire fighter to help people plan to protect their property from fire catastrophies in advance of a fire or to minimize the damage after the fire occurs.  I don't actually fight the flame-throwing type of fires today, but I do help people to plan against LTC fires or to minimize the damages of such LTC fires after they occur.

    I endorse this lawyer. Rod is the type of attorney who treats each client as an individual. His clients are not just legal issues or mere numbers for his law practice. I have no problem endorsing him heartily as one of the best in his practice area.

    I have been to Rod's Estate Planning seminars and learned quite a bit about how he can save the assets of parents who need Medicaid to pay for care towards the end of life. I plan to send my own family and friends to Rod when they need help with Estate Planning.
