Summary

I am a certified elder law attorney who aspires to allay my clients' fears and give them peace of mind about the future. I assist seniors and their families with planning for disability; asset preservation; estate planning using wills and trusts, to ensure that assets go to who clients want as efficiently as possible and to minimize tax burdens; drafting special needs trusts; positioning clients to obtain Medicaid and Veterans benefits to help with the cost of long-term nursing home care, assisted living or home care; and guiding families through the probate and trust administration process when a loved one passes away. I strive to treat every client with the same respect and compassion I want for myself and for my own family.
