If you have a parent or spouse who needs long term care but you don’t know what to do and they are not being cooperative. You and I have a shared experience. My grandmother essentially refused to leave her home while her life slowly ebbed away from cancer. I know how frustrating that situation is and how stressful it can be.
For all my fellow entrepreneurs who want to control their own destiny personally and financially, who don’t want their income potential capped working to help someone else fulfill their dreams, and who are grinding to build the life they want for their family and themselves, we are on the same path.
I’m here to help you with estate planning, probate, guardianship, and asset protection, and I believe in making the law personal and approachable. Let me share my journey and how I can empower you in your legal needs.
I’m an adventurer at heart, and my love for travel and exploration started early. As a kid, my mom was part of a Corvette Club, and those road trips to conventions were filled with the joy of experiencing new places and people. That adventurous spirit led me to UC Berkeley for undergrad and then across the country to Syracuse for law school.
But my desire to see beyond our nation’s borders and serve my country took me even further. I joined the United States Air Force as a JAG (Judge Advocate General) and lived outside the country for four incredible years. Traveling through Europe and Asia exceeded all my hopes and dreams. What most people don’t realize is that estate planning is a significant part of the military. It’s free for active-duty personnel, retirees, and their families, and I had the privilege of assisting many with their estate planning needs as a JAG and later as a civilian attorney for the Army. I discovered I truly enjoyed it.
In 2011, when I ventured out on my own, I decided to pursue what I loved – estate planning.
Estate planning isn’t just about documents and legal jargon. It’s an act of love, a way to ensure your loved ones are cared for financially. But it is just as importantly about making sure you are cared for when needed and by the people you want to be doing the caring. Finally, it is an opportunity for you to leave not just a financial legacy but also one that transfers your values, principles, and life lessons to the next generation. It is an incredibly powerful tool that is often underutilized.
I help you:
- Be heard, by giving voice to your values, principles, and stories
- Engage in a thoughtful process to name the people best suited to help take care of you when you need and your family when you are gone
- Get peace of mind knowing you have taken care of those you love and causes you want to support
- Protect your business so it is there to support you and your family’s lifestyle
I believe in building close relationships with my clients and derive deep satisfaction from helping them achieve their estate planning goals. My analytical nature guides clients through a process that encourages them to consider and prioritize their unique family situations, resulting in a tailored plan that fits them perfectly.
My goal? To establish long-term personal relationships with my clients, becoming your trusted “lawyer for life.”
Let’s work together to plan for and protect your family, your wealth, and your legacy. I’m here to advise, counsel, and be your resource and advocate, all with a spirit of excellence, honor, and professionalism. Don’t wait! Let’s start this journey together today.
