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.

   I understand that by contacting a lawyer or a law firm through the Academy of Special Needs Planners, I will not create an attorney-client relationship and the message will not necessarily be treated as privileged or confidential. I also understand that if I contact a non-attorney member of the Academy, whether a financial planner, trustee or other non-attorney, that such contact does not by itself mean that the professional has been retained and that communications with the member may not be treated as privileged or confidential.
