Estate and trust matters can be overwhelming, complicated and emotionally draining, especially when litigation or controversy is involved. My approach is to always be thorough in my work product and thoughtful in my counsel so that at the end of the day, my clients have the confidence they need to make the best decisions for their case, their families and their goals.
