Estate Planning Attorney
Serving families throughout Lynnfield, Wakefield, Reading, Peabody, Danvers, Beverly, Greater Boston Area, North Shore, and Southern New Hampshire area
As a child, I lived with my parents and sister on the second floor of a home owned by my grandparents. I had the unconditional love, support and encouragement of both my parents and grandparents. Family was always first.
After graduating from Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT where I was co-captain of the basketball team, I earned my law degree from Suffolk University. Following law school, I was hired as an associate in a general practice firm, gaining experience in several areas of law. When my grandfather died in 1985, I assisted my grandmother in organizing her own finances and estate plan. After seeing what a relief that process was to my grandmother, it became clear to me then that I could make the greatest difference for my clients and their families by focusing my practice in the area of estate and elder law planning.
I often say that I am a teacher and a coach who went to law school by accident. I have devoted my career to taking care of families by educating clients about estate planning and elder law, designing plans that fit their lives now, and updating and monitoring the plan on a regular basis. But it’s not only about designing good estate plans; it’s about taking care of families when it really matters.
