As a mother of two young children, I can relate to the exhaustion that comes with the daily grind of parenthood. As an estate planning attorney, however, I feel that it’s my mission to encourage every parent, regardless of financial status, to have an effective estate plan in place.
I enjoy meeting with families from all walks of life and assisting them in having the difficult conversations that ultimately turn into a solidification of their wishes. Especially when minor children are involved, I do my best to guide parents toward a mindful selection of guardians, trustees, and personal representatives. Also, having witnessed preventable yet heartbreaking conflict upon the passing of my own family members, I am also dedicated to assisting grieving families with the administration of a decedent’s trust.
I strive to be an approachable, humble, yet resolute estate planning lawyer and pride myself in holding each and every client’s hand throughout their legal journey.
