Integrity without knowledge is weak and useless,
and knowledge without integrity is dangerous and dreadful.
- Samuel Johnson
My Business Model
When Estate Planning, I work with you by educating you regarding Family, Probate, Real Estate, and Estate Law.
I respectfully listen and assist you as you create your own family plan. In this way, your Living Revocable Trust will be a true family plan; one that will provide your family the utmost in security.
I pride myself in providing thorough and competent service, and insist that my clients understand all of their options and the choices that they make.
I believe clients keep coming back, and referring their colleagues, friends, and family to my practice because they understand that I work diligently to help them provide the best planning for their families, and to meet all their legal needs.
Whether your matter involves protecting your family and assets with a valid estate plan, filing a will with the California probate court, settling a landlord-tenant issue, or buying your first home, I will attend to every detail of your case from start to finish.
I fully understand that each client has different needs and objectives, and I will tailor my services accordingly.
I get to know the special needs and issues that are important to your family through the use of candid and sensitive interviewing. Together, we will determine the best way to achieve your legal goals, no matter how complex.
My lifelong desire has been to provide effective and affordable advocacy that meets the needs of my community.
