I am passionate about helping individuals, families, and business owners achieve peace of mind by developing and implementing creative cost effective plans tailored for each client. I have been a practicing attorney since May of 2011. Prior to attending law school, I was a family law and estate planning paralegal for approximately 20 years. In that time I acted as a Paralegal for several attorneys. After establishing my own practice, I used all of my skills and knowledge to develop my family law, estate planning and wealth management practice. I raised my three children as a single mother while working and attending law school at nights and on weekends. I am the parent of a special needs child and understand the struggles and additional resources that families with special needs children require. After graduating law school, I established my first office and opened my doors as a sole practitioner. The focus of my practice is to assist families in their life transitions and growth. Our office prides itself on being able to establish personal connections with our clients. When working at law firms, I realized that very often the attorney knew little about the client or the family that they were working with. I wanted to practice differently. I understand that the key to being a trusted counselor and advisor and the key to achieving the clients objectives is to know the client on a personal level. As part of the estate planning process, I prepare documents for clients and work to educate them on the importance of titling assets to ensure their estate planning documents work the way they intend. My goal is to make this process as accessible, efficient and streamlined as possible so that individuals are more motivated to develop and complete their plan, and families do not have to deal with the fallout from a lack of planning.
