I am personally aware of the need to understand and explain the intricacies of Elder Law, Estate Planning, Medicaid Planning and Veterans’ Benefits to clients and their families.
 
I have had great success in obtaining benefits for clients.  Whatever your goal may be, we can assist you in achieving it.
 
My specific and unique knowledge of multiple benefits systems and how they interact allows my clients to maximize their coverage for assistance, while reducing their exposure to outside collections.
 
I counsel clients daily on such issues as: Estate Planning, Trusts & Estates (Planning and Drafting), Estate Administration, Medicaid and Veterans’ Benefits Planning.  My office will illustrate and explain a wide spectrum of planning options, which allows our clients to choose either an aggressive or a conservative approach towards planning.
 
Again, my office strives to ensure that all opportunities are utilized and that no legal and/or planning opportunities are missed or overlooked.
