About me

My goal as your attorney is to help you make the best informed decisions possible. Whether we work together to start your new business or sell an existing business, I want you to know that I am invested in your success.


In addiiton to helping business owners and managers, I also assist individuals and families with their estate planning needs. I can advise you as to the best way to protect your assets while you are alive and how to transfer those assets to your family or favorite charity after your death. 


When I am not running my law practice, I enjoy cooking, gardening, skiing and swimming, caring for my pets, and traveling.

    I met Paula through our services on our law school's alumni board and was impressed by her intelligence and demeanor. I had an opportunity to refer one of my clients to her on a transactional issue and he was impressed by her wise counsel and thoroughness. I would highly recommend Paula for any business matter.

  • David Jay Givot

    Paula is my go-to for estate planning. Recently, however, I received a call from the daughter of a couple that I referred to her. She wanted to make sure that I knew how thoroughly impressed and happy they were with Paula's work. She wanted me to know that Paula was there to answer questions and help them at every turn and that she NEVER talked down to them or made them feel small for not knowing the answer to a question. Happily, I have received other such calls from clients I have referred to her. Thanks, Paula!
