Member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP).

Private Client work has always interested me: I enjoy the intellectual challenge of solving people’s problems. Estate planning and wealth preservation is always about more than the person sitting in front of me. I look at families as a whole, across the generations, thinking about the future, as well as what’s happening now. A key part of my job is cutting through the legalese and making sure my clients understand what’s being suggested. I know I’ve done my job properly when my clients know exactly how a legal solution will help them.
