Stone Arch Law Office, PLLC
- Current
Stone Arch Law Office, PLLC is a Minnesota law firm providing sound legal advice for estate planning, document drafting, and estate and trust management. I have built my practice around providing estate planning services in an easy and pain-free manner. I believe it is essential for my clients to feel comfortable and unburdened as they plan for the “what ifs” in life. As a result, my clients leave our meetings surprised by how much they have learned and relieved that they have a plan to take care of their loved ones. They pay me the highest compliment by not only referring their friends and family to me, but also by leaving positive online reviews. And because I network with many “holistic” financial advisors, my clients also are grateful to their advisor for making the introduction. Along with taking great care of my clients and financial advisor referral partners, I also have been published in academic publications at law schools and universities around the county.

Adjunct Professor
Thomas Jefferson School of Law Part-time
-
The Thomas Jefferson School of Law, located in San Diego, CA, is an accredited, independent law school offering a Juris Doctor, three Masters of Law programs, and a combined JD/MBA with San Diego State University. As an adjunct professor, I taught classes online to a live audience on wealth management topics. My students primarily were LL.M candidates (LL.M is a master’s degree granted to JD students who pursue further study). The LL.M. my students were pursuing was in International Taxation and Financial Services. The classes I taught included: • Asset Management • Chartered Portfolio Management • Comparative Taxation and Financial Services Along with teaching the classes, I also assisted my students on writing their thesis papers and pursuing publication opportunities. Although most of my students were from the U.S., many non-JD international students took my classes as well.
