Q & A
What do you find most rewarding about your work?
Helping my clients. Most of my clients are friends or referred by friends when they call me for legal work, but all of my clients are my friends after the work is done.
What previous experiences influence your practice?
I got interested in estate planning because I saw first-hand (with my family) the results of poor (and no) planning.
