Personal Statement

“Any estate matter is very important in a person’s life and requires a high degree of professional advocacy. I ensure my clients’ interests are protected and that they receive the individual attention they need and deserve.

My approach to estate, trust and guardianship litigation focuses on the parties and their relationships to each other. My philosophy is that it’s necessary to understand the individuals involved and the interpersonal dynamics behind the issues at hand.

That insight, to me, is invaluable. A perspective of the underlying issues allows me to help clients navigate the chaos the litigations can bring into their lives and may also provide a strategic advantage in hotly contested matters.”
