About me

My practice emphasizes estate planning to smoothly transition property and assets between generations. I teach aspiring paralegals and serve the community as a Judge Pro Tem for the local courts. I turn no one away who needs legal help. If I cannot provide the best services, I will make recommendations to guide the client to a better qualified person.
