My strategy and approach ultimately come to the specific practice area that I am in. Specifically, in Estate Planning, my goal is to first plan completely for the person’s life avoiding all guardianship possibilities while maintaining their autonomy so they can enjoy a dignified life for their remaining days. Secondly, I create a plan that will first contemplate minor children and then would move to completely avoid any, and all, probate pitfalls. I then create a safety net for the family with instruction and designation. While this plan is being prepared, I try to foster a relationship that will be ongoing so that the Estate plan stays up to date throughout the person’s life.
In probate and guardianship, I understand that I am representing families in the most vulnerable of situations. Therefore, my initial priority is to understand the family’s wishes and how they would like to proceed with the matter. These cases are delicate as they deal with current real-life circumstances that stem from either death or mental health-related illnesses.
