Should the need for
probate litigation in a contested case unfortunately arise
(including will contests, trust contests, conservatorship
or guardianship contests) I am ready to represent you vigorously.
I often and successfully represent beneficiaries in litigation
cases which regularly are resolved by mediation, arbitration
and, as a last resort, court trial.

counsel for numerous trustees, executors, conservators and guardians over the
past more than twenty eight years I bring substantial legal experience and
practical familiarity with the law and with the practicalities of these tasks
to the table.
In this day and age
where change is ongoing and the standards for what constitutes "quality" are
seemingly on the decline, I know that there is still a
place and a demand for uncompromisingly high legal standards,
thoughtful, responsive and deliberate efforts, and tireless
work to achieve the best possible outcome for my clientele.
I deliver those services daily to my clientele.
