Lawyer.com New Member Questionnaire:

Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
A rewarding case I recently worked on involved financial elder abuse by a caregiver. I filed a civil lawsuit for financial elder abuse. In addition, I worked closely with the elder and her trustee to gather the evidence necessary for the D.A. to arrest the caregiver.

The success of my practice is based on word of mouth. Once I have completed an estate plan for someone, I am often contacted by their family, neighbors, and friends for estate planning needs.

An attorney that is knowledgeable, ethical and connected to the community.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
In the litigation context, having a professional relationship with opposing counsel and the judges is critical. A reputation in the legal community for being fair and honest is priceless.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
Depending on the circumstances, a free phone consultation can be helpful to learn about the facts the case. In the estate planning situation, I am often able to provide a time-line for the project and estimated flat fee.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
I am happy to meet with clients at their home or a mutually convenient location such as their office. I do not charge for my travel time.

What are your other interests in addition to law?
Running, photography, spending time with my family.
