"I’ve practiced estate planning, trust, and fiduciary matters in Arizona as well as worked as a prosecutor handling cases involving financial exploitation and elder abuse for the Yuma County Attorney's Office. The cornerstone of my practice is simple: I listen to clients and help find solutions based on their individual needs."
Regardless of whether a client has a substantial or modest estate, all clients deserve the same care and attention. I understand that in all cases, estate distribution determination concerns the fruits of one’s labor. So, it is important that assets are distributed in accordance with the client’s wishes.
