About me

In August 2010, I opened the doors of my own firm.  Prior to this, I was a senior associate at Quinlivan Wexler LLP where I had been a member of the Estate Planning and Probate department since joining the firm in 2001.  I am dedicated to personalized service for each and every client. My approach is educational and proactive – I first determine each client’s individual needs, desires and values, and then tailor their plan to best fulfill their wishes.
