I have been practicing law for over twenty-five years, and was selected as the attorney for several major legal service plans, including Chase Manhattan, American Express and Montgomery Wards Legal Service Plans, helping thousands of satisfied clients with their legal problems, and have been an AARP member attorney.
In my legal practice, I have taken many cases to trial when necessary, but have settled many hundreds of disputes to the mutual satisfaction of my clients, sometimes involving hundreds of thousands of dollars. In the process, I have handled many cases in such areas of concentration as:
Probate, Wills, Trusts,
Estate Planning, Elder Law,
Guardianships, and Conservatorships
I have developed a friendly, caring style, and treat my clients with the full respect they deserve. I recognize that lawyers are in a service business, where the client is entitled to accessibility, responsiveness, communication, and timeliness, from a lawyer that values his clients.
In addition to all the services listed above, I provide the following services for my clients while they wait, by mail, or via the internet:
* Simple and Complex Wills,
* Living and Testamentary Trusts,
* Durable Powers of Attorney,
* Health Care Proxies, and
* Living Wills or Health Directives.
My fee and payment policies are flexible for the client, and my initial consultation on any matter is always free.
I received my Law degree from the Washington College of Law of The American University in 1980, and have also received a BS in Electrical Engineering (1965), and an MS in Industrial Engineering (1968) from Polytechnic University in New York, and have completed several years of advanced study in Operations Research and computer programming.
