Specializing in Estate Planning &

Business Law




From simple estates to complex planning, I am here to help you get your affairs in order before the issue arises. You will be confident that your family will not have a mess to deal with if something were to happen to you. I can help with wills, trusts, business succession planning, insurance protection trusts, special needs trusts, powers of attorney, living wills/advanced healthcare directives, animal trusts, and more.


Need advice on an existing or potential contract? I am here to help. I can also draft business agreements, purchase and sale agreements, and more. 


No two businesses are identical, and neither is my approach to each business’s needs. I understand that every business has its own unique set of circumstances, so I help clients structure their business accordingly and assist with current and future transactional work that each business faces. From forming your business, to contract drafting, and to succession planning, I can help your business with every step along the way.
