  • Estate Planning:  My estate planning services include wills, powers of attorney, and trusts.  I provide simple and easy to understand legal documents to put your mind at ease so that you know that your estate matters will be taken care of in the way that you want.  How your property is titled is a big factor in how your estate plan will play out.  So my real estate services can also help structure your estate plan for you.
  • Probate:  From start to finish, you'll find that I can handle all of your probate needs promptly and affordably.  Don't believe it when people tell you that probate takes forever and is terribly expensive - it doesn't have to be that way!  I believe in keeping costs to a minimum, and will walk you through the probate process helping you every step of the way. 
  • Real Estate:  I also handle all facets of real estate law from purchase agreements to deeds to title work and closings. Whether you are buying or selling a home or would like to add an owner to the title to your property, I can provide the results you are looking for at a reasonable cost. 
  • Civil & Criminal Cases:  I also handle civil litigation and criminal defense.  Services range from filing lawsuits to obtaining judgments for collection, and making sure that you have the best outcome that you deserve if you have been sued or if there are charges against you.  You'll have peace of mind that you have someone fighting for you who is armed with experience and knowledge for the best results possible. 

Keeping current on the ever-changing laws and staying involved in the legal community are key factors to providing you with an attorney that is ready for today's legal challenges.  Armed with knowledge and a good reputation, I look forward to helping people in some of the most trying times of their lives.
