I’m available for speaking engagements at client seminars, community groups and professional organizations.
“My father was a lawyer in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Growing up, I had no idea what that meant, but he had an office full of papers on a high floor in the tallest building in Indiana, and it all seemed very important. The only other choice I knew about was doctor, but my hands were clumsy and I couldn’t stand the sight of blood, so I went to law school.
That’s where I learned that the world is made up of complex systems that aren’t user friendly, and I was very good at understanding how to navigate those systems and solve real-life problems. I took up trusts and estates as my field of specialty because I love helping people, explaining complex issues in understandable terms, and solving math problems, and it’s a great way to do all of those things.”
