Estate planning is one of the best gifts you can give your loved ones.  Most people don’t think about estate planning until they’ve experienced what happens when someone dies without a will.

Seeing families fight over belongings instead of comforting each other in a time of grief doesn't have to be the trigger that motivates you to schedule an Estate Planning Session.

Working through grief is hard enough for your loved ones, don't make it harder by not having things organized and put in order.


When you suffer a loss in your family, it is an emotional and overwhelming process to navigate through what needs to be done. Even if your loved one had a Will in place.

The executor of the Will has to follow up with creditors, file paperwork with the court, and round up assets, all while grieving and continuing to live and provide for loved ones.

You don’t have to go through this alone, and you don’t have to research and guess if you’re handling your loved one’s estate properly.


Your business is your livelihood. It’s what pays the bills and puts food on the table. And even if you’re not running your business full time, you need to protect yourself.

Having the correct business documents in place—contracts, tax paperwork, agreements—helps to ensure that your business runs smoothly. It also reduces the risk of liability.

I work with business owners to ensure you have the documents you need to protect your business—now and in the future.
