“One of the many questions I am asked by my clients is why I chose to become an Attorney, and more specifically, an Attorney that focuses in Estate Planning and Probate. My answer is always the same – to help people have “peace of mind.” There are a lot of factors that go into planning for one’s Estate Planning documents. Most people think that the subject of finances is usually the center of discussion when talking about planning, however, it is just one component. The component I like to focus on first when speaking with clients is the family dynamics and the emotions that are entwined with families. It is important to me to understand who the clients are, how their relationships are with their family members, and most of all, guide them in making choices that ultimately give them peace of mind.”
