I am dedicated to helping seniors and their families get the care they need while protecting and preserving the assets they worked to accumulate.
My route to becoming an Elder Law attorney began in 1990 when I was a Certified Financial Planner. Back then, I would speak with clients about the use of long term care insurance to preserve assets when confronted with skyrocketing nursing home costs. But the premiums too often were unaffordable for a risk that seemed very small to so many people. So clients instead focused on accumulating money and not taking steps to protect it.
After leaving financial planning, I went to law school and then decided to open my own practice dedicated to Elder Law, Estate Planning, and Real Estate. It has been a perfect return to my roots working directly with clients on their financial and healthcare matters.
