Summary

Who I am.
I am a Christian husband and father who believes in family, honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way I want to be treated and helping those in need. I wake up every morning excited to go to work because I get to live my values through serving others.

What I do.
I did not choose elder law as a career path, it chose me. For many years I practiced first as a CPA and then as a tax attorney who helped rich people avoid taxes. I only discovered my passion for elder law after my mother’s untimely death when I took care of my loveable and hopelessly demented dad for about three years. I quickly found that information and resources for caretakers are scarce, often conflicting, and sometimes just plain wrong. So, I help families navigate eldercare issues, maintain family harmony, and obtain the care and attention elders need and deserve.
I prepared myself over 10 years ago to help my family and have continued every year thereafter to provide the best elder law counsel and advice to my clients by traveling thousands of miles and spending thousands of dollars every year to study with nationally recognized experts in the disciplines of elder law. And I correspond daily with other elder law attorneys throughout the United States to brainstorm solutions to the problems the elderly face and discuss the effectiveness of various planning strategies.

Why I Do It.
I try to help others through the confusing maze I have been through personally. I do more than talk the talk, I have walked the walk. I have experienced a caregiver’s exhaustion, confusion, and fear when I had to navigate the bewildering landscape of obtaining affordable, quality long-term care for my dad.
