My practice at Fitzwater Law concentrates on special needs planning, probate, Medicaid, and adult guardianship and conservatorship matters. I have always enjoyed working with individuals and families to help loved ones.
I feel at home here in the Northwest but I am originally from the Midwest. Prior to joining Fitzwater Law, I worked with clients in northwest Indiana to achieve their goals in probate, guardianship, and Medicaid matters. I earned my undergraduate degree (biology) and MBA from Valparaiso University in northwest Indiana and my J.D. from the Valparaiso University School of Law.
When I am not in the office, you will find me spending time outdoors with my family, indoors with a game, exercising, or secretly trying to establish residency in the gold room at Powell’s Books.
