Core Values

People are more important that things.

Family relationships are worth preserving. My mission is to help families set up care-planning solutions that preserve quality of life while protecting relationships across generations. Certainly protecting money and property is an important part of preserving your legacy and I work hard to help you achieve these goals. But at the end of the day, people always matter more than things. 

All people deserve to be treated with dignity.

 The majority of my clients are dealing with mental incapacity or physical limitation. Regardless of these challenges, I believe they deserve to be treated with respect and compassion and respect.   

My Story

This is personal to me.

In addition to practicing law, I am a mom of four and my oldest child has special needs. As a caregiver, I have at various times sacrificed my health, my finances, and my career in order to try to connect my son with the resources he needs in order to thrive.  It has been hard to find the right answers--in many ways, graduating from a top law school with honors and passing the bar exam were easy by comparison!  

I started my law firm with the goal of helping people with disabling conditions access needed supports and services so that they and their families can live better lives.

This is not just a job for me, this is personal.


End of life compassion and comfort.

Several years ago, my grandmother and grandfather needed nursing home care.  My grandmother had suffered a disabling stroke and my grandfather was fading fast into the depths of Alzheimer's.   Fortunately, they had resources and the care they received during their final years was top-notch, but it was still stunning quickly they spent down their life's savings to pay for their care.  I was even more shocked to see how bleak the picture looked for family members without the resources to pay for long-term care. 

I practice Elder Law because people at the end of life deserve compassion and comfort.

A different kind of law firm.

I am intimately familiar with the challenges encountered by individuals with disabling conditions and their caretakers. Working with a lawyer can be intimidating for anyone, but I work hard to put my clients at ease and make getting legal help as painless as possible.

With flexible options such as Skype consultations, after-hours appointments for caregivers who work during the day, and bringing the law office to you when client mobility presents a barrier, this truly is a different kind of law practice. 

For many families, the cost of legal services my seem out-of-reach. I offer solutions ranging from a la carte legal services to payment via credit card to help bridge the affordability gap. 

Whether you are caring for a disabled child like me, a parent in the throes of dementia, or a veteran spouse with traumatic brain injury, this law firm is for you.
