I empower ambition when I DISTILL COMPLICATED ESTATE PLANNING concepts to TAKE THE MYSTERY OUT OF THE planning PROCESS.

My Practice Area is:

Private Client Services


I have worked with: 

  • Business owners across a range of industries, including healthcare, entertainment, advertising, and real estate.
  • Families navigating the responsibilities that come with the stewardship of inherited wealth.
  • Entrepreneurs interested in prospectively structuring assets prior to significant business growth.

MY GREATEST STRENGTHS ARE:

  • Working with clients to ensure they are comfortable with each step of the estate planning process.
  • Tailoring plans to meet competing needs when there are complicated family dynamics.
  • Counseling clients through decisions that will have an impact through multiple generations.

I WANT YOU TO KNOW:

  • I started my career at two large firms before opening a solo practice, where I worked for the past six years.
  • Clients have asked me to serve in the trusted positions of Executor and Trustee.
  • After graduating from law school, I served as a law clerk in United States Tax Court.

WHAT MAKES ME UNIQUELY ME IS:

When I'm not in the office, I enjoy chasing after my three spirited children and two spoiled dogs, and coaching soccer.

MY PROFESSIONAL & COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES ARE:

  • Member, Philadelphia Bar Association – Probate and Trust Law Section

  • Sustaining Sponsor, The Timothy School (School for Children with Autism in Berwyn, Pennsylvania)
