My experience in probate matters enables me to assist clients in working through problems they may encounter when a loved one dies. This is a very difficult time for them, and my job is to help during this process and make it as smooth as possible. I have probated estates ranging in size from multi-million dollars to estates where the debts exceed the assets. I also assist clients with real estate matters, estate planning and tax matters.
