Summary

My practice includes both planning for individuals (estate planning and administration, elder law, planning for those with disabilities) and advising nonprofit organizations. Some items of note: I have been given the designation "Certified Elder Law Attorney by the National Elder Law Foundation, after completing the Foundation's requirements. I am also a member of the Special Needs Alliance, an invitation-only organization dedicated to the concerns of individuals with disabilities and their families. I have been designated "Superlawyer" by my peers for many years, including among the top 25 women lawyers in the state in 2011. And I am the co-author of The Elder Law Answer Book, Third Edition (Aspen 2009, updated annually), which covers a wide variety of estate planning, probate, and elder law topics in a useful Q&A Format. I have represented individuals of very modest means as well as those with multimillion dollar estates.
