About me


I’m a Wisconsin native who went to college at the University of Michigan and attended law school at the University of Wisconsin.  I relocated to Portland in 2008 to escape the cold winters and to enjoy all the outdoor fun the Pacific Northwest has to offer.


I practice probate and estate planning. My services include:

  • Probate Administration

  • Wills

  • Revocable Living Trusts

  • Advance Directives

  • Powers of Attorney

  • Disposition of Remains Designation

  • Estate Planning for Same Sex Couples


 I also offer free advance directives for first responders, members of the military, and veterans.  An advance directive is a legal document that appoints someone to make health care decisions for you, in the event you become incapable of making these decisions yourself.  If you or someone you know is a first responder, member of the military, or veteran, we will help them fill out and execute an advance directive free of charge.


Please feel free to contact me with any questions! OR 503.646.6501
