Summary

I'm experienced in helping people during very stressful times of life.

For 14 years I primarily practiced consumer bankruptcy law and during that time I worked with clients going through every stage of life and experience.

I've taken what I learned from my bankruptcy practice and applied it to helping people plan for the future and follow the wishes of loved ones.

Let me assist you in ensuring your wishes are followed regarding how you would like to be treated during illness, at end of life, who you would like to speak on your behalf if you are unable to speak for yourself, and how you would like your assets distributed when you die.

I also assist families carry out the wishes of deceased loved ones by administering wills.

Please call 919-903-9442 for a consultation.
