I’m available for speaking engagements for client seminars, community groups and professional organizations.

From an early age, I was told l would be a great lawyer because I had the gift of persuading people in family arguments.

As a “people” person, I was drawn to Trusts & Estates. I achieve personal satisfaction on a daily basis helping people through tough times, facing complex issues and family conflicts.
