What do you look forward to when you go to work
My grandfather died suddenly when my dad was seven.
With no will in place, his estate was ravaged and the family
struggled. I know what can happen without planning! I want
to help my clients and their families avoid what my family
experienced. I also utilize my passions for writing and
speaking to help others beyond my law practice.
People will do just about anything, including go to the
dentist, before they obtain or update estate plans. Just as
my dad practiced preventive dentistry, it's much better to be
preventive and proactive with estate planning.
Estate planning involves far more than documents.
It's about lifestyle, relationships, life lessons and legacy.
Utilizing a process that includes thoughtful questioning and
careful listening, I teach my clients about the law, and they
teach me about life. We all have wonderful, good, bad and
just plain lousy things that happen to us. The keys are what,
when and how we plan for and respond to them.
The relationships I have established and maintained
over 28 years are amazing. How many people can say they
met with five generations of a family at the same time? Or
represented a 106-year woman and held a six-week-old
baby too? Wow!
What woman inspires you and why?
Former Congresswoman and Ambassador Connie Morella
inspires me with her grace and dignity. She is my role model,
through her life, family and continuing contributions to our
community, state, country and world. In my own small ways, I
hope to make our community a better place too.
