Profession LogoATTORNEY

I became an estate planning attorney because I want to help families. The legal system can be confusing and intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. I speak in plain English and truly want you to understand your options and help you make wise decisions. With good planning, not only can future headache and expense be avoided, but you can leave a legacy for your family, taking care of them even after you are gone.

I take pride in providing each of my clients with one-on-one counseling, responsive, clear communication, and excellent service. I work closely with you to make sure your goals are realized. Estate planning is a lifelong process, and I strive to build relationships that last long after we first meet.
