About me

I focus on probate and estate planning almost exclusively because I have a passion fo helping people through the legal process following death or incapacity. These situations are difficult enough without the legal process being made more complicated by poor drafting or preparation. It is my mission to protect her client's interests (legal, financial and personal) and hold their hands through the legal process. I base my practice on honesty, good communication and hard work.


 


I currently takes cases in Bexar County, Guadalupe County and Comal County. I also accept cases in Frio County, Atascosa County, Kendall County, Medina County and other Texas Counties on a case-by-case basis.


 


I am originally from Chicago, Illinois, but have also lived in Ohio, North Carolina, California and South Dakota. I enjoy spending time with my family, travel and volunteering in the San Antonio community. I decided to make San Antonio my permanent home in 2010 and I do not miss icy roads or below-zero temperatures one bit.



I volunteer with Junior League of San Antonio, Green Spaces Alliance and am on the board for Crime Stoppers of San Antonio and Animal Defense League of Texas.
