I specialize in estate planning, probate, asset protection and related tax and business planning. I endeavor to identify the objectives of the client and match the plan to the person. One size does not fit all. In a relatively informal environment, as compared to downtown firms, we strive to provide high quality service, at a reasonable cost, within an appropriate time-frame. One important objective is to educate clients so that they understand what they are doing, and why they are doing it. Our clients generally express appreciation for clear, understandable information, recommendations and instruction. The firm will work closely with your CPA, financial planner, insurance professional and any other investment advisor to assure that all members of your planning team are working together in an integrated and consistent manner.
