“I realized I wanted to be an attorney at age 19 after my dad passed away. My brothers and I handled our father’s estate in surrogates court, and then I took a course in Trusts and Estates Law at the University at Albany. As an attorney I focus on Estate and Trust Administration, and I personally know that my clients are going through one of the most difficult times in their lives. I enjoy being an advocate for my clients.”
