Looking through the Yellow Pages, it seems like there’s a lawyer for everything. It would be misleading, however, to believe that attorneys work only within clearly-defined specialties.
My practice consists of several interrelated areas. At heart, I help clients plan for the future, administer estates and trusts, and sort out the consequences when things go wrong.
My planning work takes several forms, including:
- Creating “aging care” plans designed to minimize conflict among family members, business partners, and loved ones;
- Structuring business agreements and relationships to avoid litigation;
- Protecting assets from potential creditors – including the tax man.
- Preventing fraud by implementing “checks and balances” within estate planning documents, trusts, and business agreements.
- Sorting out the pieces after the death of a loved one;
- Managing trusts;
- Providing advice concerning existing business agreements.
- Working with families to resolve conflicts related to a loved one’s care;
- Recovering damages for victims of fraud and abuse;
- Administering estates and trusts following the death of a loved one;
