“My mom had Alzheimer’s. When she was going through the process, she wanted to stay at home and told me the only way she was leaving her home was feet first. She needed real legal help and I’ve found a lot of clients go through that same frustrating journey. Putting a plan together to make it possible to age independently is what motivates me every day.”
