What do you know about their most prized personal possessions? How they felt about you? What they learned during their lifetimes?
If you're like most people, you know very little about that history.
I believe your financial wealth is only a small part of your overall family wealth, which is made up of who you are and what’s important to you.
You want to know you’ve made the best decisions for your family and that your plan will work when your loved ones need it most. You want to make sure your children will be taken care of in the best way possible, and prepared to receive your wealth if anything happens to you. That's my focus, as well.
I encourage communication with my clients. In fact, for most estate planning services, I’ve thrown out the time clocks so you never have to be afraid to call with a quick question. Whenever appropriate, I bill on a flat-fee basis, agreed to in advance, so there are never any surprises.

Purposeful planning makes sure the right people have legal authority and guidance to manage your creative work and protect its integrity beyond your lifetime.

Mediation and alternative dispute resolution
As a mediator, I help you prevent conflict and promote family harmony with planning that is both tax-smart and consistent with your values.
If you're already in the middle of a dispute involving an inheritance, estate, or trust, I can help resolve it without the time and expense of litigation.
My approaches to conflict include facilitating negotiations and supporting conversations to transform interpersonal conflict interaction.
Estate administration and settlement
My clients are also executors, trustees, and guardians needing legal representation in fulfilling their fiduciary duties.
