In 2010, I was graciously awarded the Jefferson Award. Established by Jackie Kennedy, this is a national recognition system honoring community and public service. I have the expertise and education to handle almost any estate planning complication, working hard to find effective solutions.
When my clients come to me to create an estate plan or to assist with them with their elder law needs, I first determine their needs, goals and objectives. I understand each client has a different financial and family situation, which is why I will review your asset base and family structure (i.e. first marriage, minor children, blended family, single, etc.), before suggesting any services. I have extensive experience with guiding clients through the estate planning process and with helping them to select the most beneficial tools for their respective plan, including any elder law and Mediciad needs that they may have.

Additionally I am available to assist with settling a trust, handling the estate taxes, and inheritance taxes and other debts that might need to be settled before the trust assets or probate assets are distributed.
