I have been meeting the legal needs of clients since 1982. My tax planning experience as a CPA and as an attorney, coupled with my Masters Degree (LL.M.) in Taxation, helps me provide clients with valuable expertise in planning for their future. I believe that since, “Tax issues are often the driving force behind many estate planning goals. An attorney should have a strong background in the various tax laws to provide full estate planning service to clients. However, many non-tax issues are present in virtually every estate planning situation.” I help my clients avoid the time delays and expenses of probate, protect their assets from taxes, creditors, and lawsuits, and provide for the security of their loved ones by designing well-crafted estate plans.
