Practice Areas


A Will is a legal document that lets you decide who should receive which of your assets after your death. It also allows you to name guardians for any dependent children. Without a Will, the courts decide what happens to your assets and who is responsible to care for your minor children.

Real Estate and Property Law

Real estate and property law deals with a variety of related issues, including the following: rights or interests in real estate; purchases and sales and other transfers of real estate; legal aspects of rental property and landlord issues; tenants’, renters’ and homeowners’ rights; title to real property; settlement of claims against property rights; property development; zoning and land use; home loan and commercial closings; foreclosures and various other topics.

Elder Law

Elder Law involves estate and Medicaid planning. It also involves abuse and discrimination issues which may arise in your later years. It is important to know your rights and to seek counseling and advice when needed.


A Trust is a legal document that can manage your property during your lifetime and / or after your death. Trusts can be useful to avoid probate, preserve privacy, protect assets and reduce or eliminate estate tax in some situations.  It is often used alone or to supplement your Will.

Estate Planning

Estate planning involves providing a smooth transition for the passing of your assets at your death through the use of a will and/or various trusts vehicles, some of which may allow you to avoid the expense of probate.

Business Law

Business law refers to the legal areas surrounding the creation, modification, operation or transfer and sale of business entities, such as general and limited partnerships, corporations and limited liability companies (LLCs).
