I work with clients to formulate an effective estate plan (either a Will or a Trust) and assist clients with administering a probate or trust estate.
I am committed to providing each client with personalized attention and individual care to ensure that your unique needs are met. Because I provide a counseling based practice, I work collaboratively with you to define the right solution for your unique situation and involve you throughout the process. Whether drafting a simple will or assisting in the administration of a probate estate, I believe that communication is critical to forming a successful attorney-client relationship and will always endeavor to clearly explain the steps we are taking and why we are taking them.
