My primary area of practice is handling intestate and testate probates and other matters involving trusts and estates. I draft last wills and testaments, ancillary/foreign wills, durable powers of attorney for healthcare and financial purposes, physicians’ directives and living wills, revocable and irrevocable trusts, and small estate and lack of probate affidavits. I also handle TEDRA litigation matters. I enjoy working closely with clients on securing future plans for themselves and their families.
I am happy to work with small business owners and entrepreneurs with business formation, licensing, contract review, corporate governance, and other business issues. As a small business owner myself, I know the importance of establishing a strong foundation upon which to build your business.
I regularly help clients with issues related to boundary line disputes, land use violations, easements and well agreements, purchase and sale agreements, deeds and transfer instruments, release of surplus funds from foreclosures, and earnest money interpleader disputes. My familiarity with this area of law, along with my creativity and solution-oriented approach, enables me to be a strong advocate for my clients.
In the event you need criminal defense services, I have a breadth of experience defending individuals charged with misdemeanor crimes, including DV and Assault cases and cases related to the unlawful display of a firearm. I also handle post judgment motions to expunge criminal records, motions to restore the right to possess firearms, and motions to vacate misdemeanors and felonies. I also handle matters involving domestic violence and anti-harassment protection orders, vulnerable adult protection orders, and no contact orders.
I have extensive experience representing both residential and commercial landlords with respect to a wide range of issues, including leases and tenant background checks, unlawful detainers and eviction matters, ejectments, squatting, and matters involving nuisance, drug use, and waste. I enjoy helping clients find solutions in the face of often difficult situations.
