Why Choose My Law Firm?

I want this to be easy for you. Years ago, I lost my best friend suddenly to brain cancer and had to move quickly to get her estate in order. The loss and the related legal issues that families must go through motivated me to focus on estate law. I want you to have an estate plan that will give you peace of mind and provide for your loved ones. I want to make sure your loved one’s final wishes are not forgotten in the probate process.


I have been practicing law for more than 25 years. I know the law can be complex, so I take the time to educate you about your options and how everything works. I don’t use legal jargon but explain things in real-world language, so you can be empowered to make the best decisions for you and your family.


You shouldn’t have to spend hours and hours of your life on this. You shouldn’t have to waste time driving back and forth to a lawyer’s office. Much of the work in estate matters can be accomplished via phone, video conference and email. Documents can be signed and delivered online. But if you’re more comfortable meeting in person, you’re always welcome.


Trustworthy legal representation should not be reserved for the wealthiest families. My estate services are customized not only to your needs but to your budget as well. This starts with a free consultation where we can talk about your probate case or what you want out of an estate plan.
