Advisor profile

My approach

Estate planning and passing on wealth to the next generation can be a rewarding, yet complex issue for everyone concerned. I work with my client’s attorneys and CPAs to help bring clarity and comfort by guiding them — and their families — through the process. My clients typically have questions about issues like how to preserve their wealth, how to manage their taxes, how to equitably divide their assets among loved ones, and much more. I can help ensure they leave the legacy they want.
