Biography

Graduate of Temple University School of Law, Philadelphia, PA. Practicing in Arizona since 1983 with satisfied clients in Maricopa, Pinal and Gila Counties and around the State.

Personal Injury and Wrongful Death - We have helped many individuals and families whose lives were disrupted by serious injury or death caused by Auto collisions, Motorcycle accidents, car-pedestrian and truck accidents. We offer free consultations and usually take these cases on a contingency (percentage) fee.

Wills, Trusts and Powers of Attorney - We love helping people to plan with high quality estate planning packages including everything a person may need in case of disability or death. We spend time meeting with our clients to determine what they want and what is important to them. We also spend time explaining the documents they are signing and putting them into a professional notebook (to be sent home with our client) so that they have all the documents they need in a convenient location. These documents may include Wills, Trusts, Declarations, Living Wills, Health Care Powers of Attorney, Mental Health Powers of Attorney, Financial powers of attorney and related documents.

We also make sure that important health care documents are registered with the Arizona registry and are accessible via the web with a secure username and password. That way the health care documents are always available to your medical providers, even when you are traveling out of state.

Canadians and other non-U.S. citizens have special requirements to meet when preparing their estate planning documents. We can help you to meet the requirements.

Probate - We have experience in filing probates and probate substitutes, including collection by affidavit .

Estate Planning - Our office has experience in all bankruptcy chapters and also in adversary proceedings in bankruptcy court. We have filed cases under chapter 7, 11 and 13, including zero and low down cases for individuals who qualify.

Legal Answers
Q. I have a question regarding my parents home. On this home they were three owners which were my two uncles to my dad.
A: Due to many grammer and spelling errors this question is impossible to answer at this time. You need professional help and should get it. I recommend that you pay a lawyer to meet either in person (best) or via video chat (not as good as in person). Then discuss your situation to understand what you need to know and do. Good luck.
Q. Is a holographic will valid if the testator is physically disabled, but is dictated and witnessed?
A: What you describe does not sound like a holographic will, which is a will entirely in the handwriting of the person making it and signed by that person (even if not witnessed or notarized). So I believe that the short answer to your question is that the testator died without a will. As such, Arizona intestate laws decide who the beneficiaries of the estate will be. The Court will decide who will be in charge of the estate unless there is agreement among all heirs as to who the personal representative will be. It sounds like you really need to see a lawyer soon regarding this case. Sooner is better than later at getting a probate filed without complications.
Q. My grandfather passed away in 2019 now I’m being asked to sign a paper what could it be?
A: You don't have to sign anything until you have had the chance to review it with counsel. There are many fine probate lawyers in Arizona and the cost of a consultation will cost you very little and could save you thousands (or tens of thousands). Many of us will do virtual consultations after COVID. Get the document but don't sign it until it has been reviewed by counsel and you have received proper legal advice. No need to guess what it is.
