Estate Planning

Careful legal planning is the most vital step an individual or business can take to protect assets and pass them on as desired. An array of complex legal rules, potential liabilities (including taxes and long-term medical expenses), and even litigation can destroy hard-won financial accomplishments.

Estate planning is definitely not “one size fits all,” so it’s important to work with an estate planning attorney who is committed to assist you with your unique family and financial situations.


There are many avenues in adoption, each one has its pros and cons. Adoptive parents, especially first time adoptive parents, are usually unaware of the issues involved with adoption. Right now you may be gathering the information needed to make some big decisions that affect many different parties.

Is adoption right for you? It is a lifelong commitment and it is a question that deserves deep and thoughtful discussion with your spouse, counselor, nuclear and extended family. It seldom works out how you envision. Adoptive relationships can be just as frustrating and stressful as they are sweet and loving. Every child is unique. Every relationship has its own dynamics. Please, call now. You can speak with an experienced adoption attorney about your specific situation for free.


US bankruptcy laws are complicated and filing requires a huge amount of paperwork. In addition, the rules change almost every year.

On June 15, 2012, the Secretary of Homeland Security announced that certain people who came to the United States as children and meet several key guidelines may request consideration of deferred action.

Juvenile Defense

Many parents assume that “everything will work out okay because we’re good people” when their child is arrested. However, the District Attorney doesn’t necessarily see it that way and may charge your child with a crime… no matter what you tell them! Juvenile Defense is critical whether or not your child is guilty of a crime. He or she deserves to be treated fairly by both law enforcement officials and judges. And if you think your child acted wrongly and deserves appropriate consequences, I will work to ensure that your child is not punished excessively or unfairly.
