As co-chair of OWM’s Business Planning Group, I work with clients to address their legal needs. Whether it is helping them to form a new start up business, representing a thriving ongoing business, or helping them sell their business, I look forward to the opportunity to advise my clients. I also assist my clients with preparing estate plans and administering the estates of their loved ones. I look at each one of these as a chance to help my clients navigate what can be difficult times.

Client Testimonial:

“Thank you so much, you are amazing!!!!” – A.P.

Peer Talk/Review:

“A careful and thoughtful lawyer who sees clients and their problems as opportunities to help.”- Joe Koury

Quote I live by:

“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.” – Albert Einstein
