Biography

I've been a lawyer in Lansing since 2005 and live in the area with my wife and two young children. I started Family Wills & Trusts, PLC after deaths in my own family revealed critical short-comings in the way estate plans fall apart, or are never quite put together correctly from the beginning.

I pride myself on offering certainty and satisfaction to clients and their families. I usually work with with clients over a period of 5 weeks, addressing each nuance of their estate plan and making sure that when our time working together is through, they leave my office with a plan that will actually work when a real crisis like their death or incapacity occurs.

I invite you to schedule a family wealth planning session with me in Lansing.

More about me: I am an MSU College of Law alumni and a member of the State Bar of Michigan. I am also a member of the Real Property, Trusts, and Estates Law Section of the American Bar Association, and the Probate & Estate Planning Section of the State Bar of Michigan. I have also earned Certificates for Probate and Estate Planning from the Institute of Continuing Legal Education 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019.
