Whether you are faced with issues related to estate planning or bankruptcy, the law governing these areas is complex and can be confusing. I can help you navigate through these issues and provide you peace of mind.
The focus of my practice is estate planning (i.e. trusts, wills, durable powers of attorney and advance health care directives), probate, trust administration and bankruptcy (both debtor and creditor representation).
I consider each client to be unique and am committed to providing quality legal representation to each of them without losing the personal touch. I conduct all client interviews and consultations personally. My goal is to understand each client's needs and to help them achieve their objectives. I welcome the opportunity to put my skills to work for you.
I am recognized by my peers as a highly skilled and ethical attorney and have earned an "AV" rating from Martindale-Hubbell which is the highest rating bestowed on attorneys for their professional knowledge and ability, as well as their ethical standards and conduct in the practice of law.
