Elder Law

Our firm is a leader in elder law, an area of law that addresses the legal concerns facing senior citizens. These issues include the challenges of asset preservation and transfer of assets, as well as Medicaid planning and health care directives.

Business Law

We bring decades of experience to helping local businesses grow, as well as guiding entrepreneurs in the establishment and administration of corporations, limited liability companies, and partnerships.

ESTATE PLANNING & Administration

Through estate planning, we ensure our client's intentions are realized in the transferring of wealth to loved ones. In addition, we oversee the management of a person's affairs and assets after death through estate administration.


We provide cost-effective representation in litigation of lawsuits, both in and out of court. Our client's best interests direct our approach, in order to minimize litigation's stressful and time-consuming effects. 

Real Estate

Our firm places a strong emphasis on supporting clients in real property matters, representing buyers, sellers, landlords, and lending institutions in both residential and commercial real estate transactions.


Being a lawyer is not merely a vocation. It is a public trust, and each of us has an obligation to give back to our communities.
